    In collaboration with well-known IT partners like Oracle, Eclipse, National Instruments, Dassault, and MathWorks, Bosch Rexroth demonstrates at SPS IPC Drives 2015 how machinery builders make their facility fit for Industry 4.0 quickly, easily, and at low cost.


In an intelligent production network, all of the components have to be able to communicate at the most advanced level. A decisive challenge is the exchange of information between automation components from various manufacturers. This calls for mandatory open standards for communication. Open Core Engineering combines the efficient software engineering of PLC-based automation with IT-based solutions and technologies in integrated facilities based on open software and communication standards.

The programming languages used in the machine world up to now penetrate new production networks using a deep functional and data technology connection between PLC-based machine controls and IT-based applications at their limits. Thus Industry 4.0 demands strong support of multilingual global solutions from intelligent automation components and adaptive machines. With automation with connected intelligence, machinery manufacturers manage the challenges for intelligent and adaptive machine modules as well as for integrating IT-based solutions.
