Smartfactory KL set to demonstrate proof of concept of ODVA machine data model

09 November 2015

In a keynote speech given by Prof. Dr.-Ing Detlef Zühlke, executive chairman of SmartFactory KL, at ODVA’s 2015 Industry Conference & 17th Annual Meeting of Members it was announced that the 2016 SmartFactory KL Demonstrator will include a proof of concept implementation of the ODVA machine data model.  The proof of concept will be supported by ODVA principal member Bosch Rexroth.

The OMI initiative is focused on techniques to optimise the integration of manufacturing machinery with the industrial ecosystem. One of the key machine integration problems that OMI seeks to solve is the streamlining and standardisation of heterogeneous communication interfaces, such as CIP and Sercos, to enable standard reporting methods and tools across machines and thus aid in the management of machines and the monitoring of their states. 

To investigate and develop standards in this area, ODVA established a Special Interest Group for Machinery Information with participants from ODVA principal members Bosch Rexroth, Rockwell Automation and Schneider Electric along with invited experts from OPC Foundation and Sercos International. The SIG has now completed its first phase of work to define a standard approach to machine data models which will then be mapped to the structures in CIP, OPC-UA and Sercos.  The 2016 SmartFactory KL demonstrator, sponsored by Bosch Rexroth, is now set to  illustrate the benefits of this approach.
