Miele announces joining of OPC Foundation

December 7, 2017 - Miele has decided to use the OPC UA Standard in their device manufacturing. The integrated security providing encryption and signing is implemented throughout Miele. One advantage of OPC UA is provision of standardized interfaces within different systems. The time efforts caused by integration, when inventing the wheel over and over again, has mostly come to an end. With that the real task, of transporting data content, got back the focus.

Miele uses material flow simulation, which will be using OPC UA standards to obtain live data directly from the source. With that feedback into higher level systems can be visualized, optimized and controlled. Hence, a simulation supported control station is realized. Additional advantage is the use of virtualized hardware. The principles of “Hardware in the Loop“ is validating the processes already during the construction and planning phase.  The OPC Foundation is supporting Miele with their excellent network of different technology providers. 

Stefan Hoppe, OPC Foundation Vice President remarked “By mandating the integration of all of its third party intelligent actuators and sensors and standardizing on OPC UA, Miele is taking concrete steps towards reaping the rewards the Smart Factory concept has to offer. True to its slogan, Miele continues to demonstrate its commitment to ‘always improve’”.
