SmartFactoryKLSystem Architecture for Industrie 4.0 Production PlantsWhitepaper SF-1.1: 04/2016

Dominic Gorecky; Stephan Weyer


This white paper describes a system architecture for Industrie 4.0 production plants in the discrete, loosely connected flow production. The system architecture serves as solution pattern for the conception of modern production plants, which are char-acterized by mechatronic changeability, individualized mass production and inter-nal and external networking. The system architecture is complemented by a set of cross-manufacturer specifications on mechanical, electromechanical and informa-tion technology-related aspects, which were developed, applied and demonstrated by means of the example of the pilot plant of the SmartFactoryKL. In conclusion, the system architecture is classified in the Reference architecture model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0) of the Platform Industrie 4.0.
