Today’s discussions on Industrie 4.0 and smart factories are usually centered on next-generation machines, contemporary business models, and the industrial internet of things (IIoT). These discussions generally play out without much thought about where the industry is coming from and brownfield integration. This shows that too much emphasis is being placed on where we are heading without thinking about carrying legacy facilities and equipment along.

Supply chains send out inventory requests. Machines autonomously request spare parts while manufacturing systems autonomously manage production life cycles. These are now common scenarios due to the adoption of Industrie 4.0 business models. Today, component manufacturers are integrating Industrie 4.0 in the deepest levels of manufacturing shop floors through embedded systems such as system on module (SOM) technology.

The entrance of the Open Platform Communications (OPC) Foundation into the industrial automation space brought order into the chaotic automation scene ruled by individual fiefdoms offering proprietary solutions tied to their hardware. Early OPC standards such as the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) attempted to create a standardized playing field that reduced the limits of using one vendor. With OPC UA, the stage was set to build non-vendor reliant technologies that shared data and communicated across automation technologies from all vendors. Twenty-three years down the line, the OPC UA laid the foundation for the introduction of Pub/Sub and, now, the integration of time-sensitive networks (TSN). Thus, the predictability of information exchange was added.
