SAP and Beckhoff present global standards for the smart factory:
In a special exhibit, Beckhoff and other technology partners at SAP booth showcase the integration of manufacturing and administrative workflows with a production line that is based on the eXtended Transport System (XTS) from Beckhoff. It transports and positions the products individually and highly dynamically for the various process steps. The highlight: The SAP Manufacturing Execution Suite communicates directly with the XTS and other production resources on the basis of standardised services acting as an interface between different “order processing languages” the TwinCAT software connects the machine and a SAP system. The order processing communication, which is based on the service-oriented architecture (SOA) concept, is realised with OPC UA.
