OPC Foundation and ZVE partner to map Industry 4.0 Asset Administration Shell into OPC UA

May 4, 2018 – The OPC Foundation and ZVEI (The ZVEI is German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers’ Association) have signed a MoU at Hannover Messe for joined activities relating to Industrie 4.0. First focus is an OPC UA based mapping of the Industrie 4.0 Asset Administration Shell (I4AAS).

Under the moderation of the OPC Foundation, the concept of the I4AAS, defined in a technology independent manner so far, will be mapped into the technology of OPC UA. The conceptual input of the I4AAS is a result of the Plattform Industrie 4.0 Working Group 1 “Norms, Standards and Reference Architecture”, the ZVEI Mirror Group “SG Standards and Models” and the ZVEI sub working group “Administration shell in detail”. To ensure the interoperability of the I4AAS with the OPC UA Companion Specifications (developed with the VDMA), the VDMA is included in addition (beside the ZVEI) and part of the upcoming OPC joint working group.
