Imagine robots communicating and acting autonomously to manufacture products individualized according to your needs? As some would call it science fiction, the initiatives around Industry 4.0 aims at bringing it into reality. For that, assets and production facilities must be interoperable and flexible. It is no surprise that Open Source plays an essential role to establish the necessary de-facto standards (Asset Administration Shell) and drive the adoption of new technologies (e.g., Digital Twin).
In this presentation, we want to provide an overview of the organizations and projects in which we are active and our approach to promote Open Source as a development approach. Also, we will demonstrate how Open Source projects driven by SAP are enabling interoperability in Industry 4.0 with the Digital Twin.
Our session addresses attendees without any specific background knowledge on the topic. Attendees will learn more about the fundamentals of Industry 4.0 as well as of Digital Twin Technology. Especially, the attendees will be able to get insights on the motivation why Open Source is crucial for increasing the adopting of standards like the Asset Administration Shell to implement Digital Twins.
