Received at the IFAC IMS2016 Workshop
Prof. Dr.-Ing. Detlef Zühlke, Dr.-Ing. Dominic Gorecky, André Hennecke and Stephan Weyer (all from the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence) received the Best Paper Award for their article on „Design and Instantiation of a Modular Sysem Architecture for Smart Factories“ at the IFAC IMS2016 Workshop, which took place in Austin, Texas (USA) in December.
The paper describes a system architecture for Industrie 4.0 production plants in the discrete, loosely connected flow production. It serves as solution pattern for the conception of modern production plants in context of Industry 4.0. The system architecture is complemented by a set of cross-manufacturer specifications on mechanical, electromechanical and information technology-related aspects, which were developed, applied and demonstrated by means of the example of the pilot plant of the SmartFactoryKL.
