EPLAN Software & Service is developing cloud-based ENGINEERING in an Industrie 4.0 environment. An interdisciplinary management approach to the automation of the individual production modules is critical for the design, efficiency, and operational safety of Cyber Physical Systems (CPS). The documented control system for the entire supply chain and the complete product life cycle is used as a comprehensive consistent database. The goal is to consider insights from the entire supply chain early in the design phase or the PLM process (product life cycle management). The generated documentation, for example, is suitable for a professionalized maintenance scenario or to optimize the energy balance.
