Industrial IT Forum Current topics on the agenda at Industry 4.0 Lounge
The continuing evolution of software solutions is changing the broad capability base of automation technology. Server-based solutions for production automation create new markets and applications for the IT industry.
Seamless availability of key information across all layers is a basic prerequisite for many new automation solutions which are targeted at optimization based on evaluation and analysis of operational data. ICT technologies are becoming increasingly important in the world of automation. This includes adaptation of office communication technology for automation applications, Internet connectivity for control systems and an evolutionary trend towards a dominant role for software.
The Industrial IT Forum (Hall 8, Stand D19) organized in collaboration with VDMA and ZVEI provides a central platform within the Industrial IT Theme Park where visitors, exhibitors and other interested parties can present current technologies, methodologies and service portfolios and discuss them with other professionals.
The Forum program includes presentations on topics such as process control based on the exchange of machine-readable data by Jürgen George (Pepperl+Fuchs) and integrated engineering by Ralf Jeske (ABB Automation) as well as the talk on cyber physical systems and their potential use in automation with Prof. Thomas Greiner (University of Pforzheim), Dr. Jochen Schlick (DKFI) and Prof. Dieter Wegener. A complete event list is available at.
