* Get up to speed with the key concepts behind Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet Consortium Reference Architectures (RAMI 4.0 / IIRA) * Understand the architectural patterns and key requirements at the foundation of RAMI 4.0 and IIRA as well as their similarities and differences * Learn how the OMG DDS standard can be used to implement RAMI 4.0 and IIRA compliant architectures
Industrie 4.0 and the Industrial Internet Consortium (IIC) have tried to systematically decompose the needs of Industrial Internet systems and define a reference architecture that promotes the desired operational concepts. This endeavor has been focused on Smart Factories for Industrie 4.0, whilst IIC has addressed generic Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) systems.
Their reference architectures, RAMI 4.0 and IIRA, have identified the key technical requirements and some standards that address them. Yet, at times the discussion on applicability leaned towards ecosystem interest, technological protectionism and in some cases a misunderstanding of what a technology such as DDS really is or can do.
Following up on the extremely successful DDS and OPC UA comparison webcast, this presentation will (1) introduce the key concepts behind RAMI 4.0 and IIRA, (2) introduce the architectural patterns and the key requirements at the foundation of RAMI 4.0 and IIRA as well as their similarities and differences, and (3) explain how the OMG DDS standard can be used to help implement RAMI 4.0 and IIRA compliant architectures.
The webcast will last approximately one hour.
