Industry 4.0

The fundamental concept of Industry 4.0 is merging the physical and virtual worlds, valuing this merger the role and intelligent man experience supervisor. This fusion is accomplished by setting the PSC plants (cyber-physical systems), which may be defined as a computer integration and physical processes - embedded computers and networks monitor and control the physical processes, with short circuits and feedback in the process affect the physical computer and computing affects the physical processes.

The strategic development of implementation / migration to a production system based on industry 4.0 follows the development stages of each of its components - CPS, IoT (Internet of things), IoS (Internet of services) and Smart Factory / Smart Products.

The integration of these technologies in manufacturing requires a new ICT architecture model, that will support the triad quality, time and cost, but also the current requirements of success, includingadaptability to a wide range of product variants, the response many systems in real time, and the total integration and network visibility, assuring the ability of vertical and horizontal integration of the systems, as well as the third dimension along the length of the equipment lifecycle, that is, we have not only a new Reference Architecture Model for I4.0 (RAMI4.0) but also a new Virtual Manufacturing Execution System (vMES) to orchestrate the Smart Factory and its components.

The RAMI4.0 (reference architecture model for Industry 4.0) defines the conditions for the description and implementation of very flexible systems. In this context, the model allows the migration step by step today to manufacture the I4.0, and the definition of multiple application domains with special and specific characteristics.

The factor is a VMEs Uptime (Virtual Manufacturing Execution System) designed in accordance with the standard RAMI4.0 with the feature can be implemented in a classical industry is an excellent plant management element in these conditions, but immediately providing easy migration to I4.0 as the respective components are released / deployed and evolve into a SMART FACTORY.

The modularity of the Uptime Factor allows not only simple implementation by manufacturing area, where each activity is designed to be easily understood in any industry, but also the easy implementation of full simulation and activities orchestration by area, using tools of artificial intelligence and training by experienced operators, as well as fog computing resources, local clouds and big data analysis and still relocating factories smart integration implementing the paradigm of cloud manufacturing, as well as communicating with the business management tools (ERP Agile, CRM, etc. ) in real time enhancing analysis of market trends, simulation planning and management scenarios, etc. much more information and speed.

The definition COMPONENT I4.0 resulting from RAMI4.0 allows to adopt any set of equipment like I4.0 component, provided that it has a "shell adminstration", allowing it to interact with the environment, whether to manage yourself and allow us to know their status and interact with it, and that is networked with all other components of Smart Factory.

Typically, a plant associate a set of equipment or installation sites, a section or unit process, which will then constitute a PSC, which manages itself using all automation features for this purpose, embedded in systems that work intelligently managing the CPS (edge computing) as close to the same.

These embedded systems completely simulate CPS managing it, and presented immediately to the human supervisor all operating conditions, events, alarms and conditions / security decisions found / made, as well as managing the wear condition in terms of maintenance needs, and subjecting the situations not provided to obtain new instructions to add artificial intelligence to these situations.
