This course introduces and explains the various types of MOM solutions and their roles in the manufacturing operations systems landscape. Connectivity and integration between all manufacturing and business applications (and more …) is increasingly important to face the current challenges successfully. Therefore, an enterprise application framework or information architecture is required.
Special attention is given to architectures for Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0. The integration and communication standards, like OPC UA and MQTT are explained.

  • Describe the roles of the various MOM solutions.
  • Explain the mapping of MOM solutions to the ISA-95 activity models.
  • Identify the differences between the presented integration approaches.
  • Describe the elements of Smart Manufacturing architectures.
  • Identify the use of OPC and MQTT.
