Future of Industrial Communication - The Global Production Language OPC UA
With Plug & Produce as its goal, the mechanical and plant engineering industry is making great efforts to develop a common language for industrial communication. While the OPC Foundation provides the grammar with the technology of OPC UA, the vocabulary is standardized by the VDMA together with its members. Learn more about the Big Picture and the needs, benefits and challenges of OPC UA standardization in this panel discussion. Gain insight into how the VDMA harmonizes the OPC UA Companion Specifications of mechanical and plant engineering and thus defines the global production language. Also find out how umati - the universal machine technology interface - can support you in the implementation of OPC UA in the future.
