This module introduces and explains the various types of MOM solutions and their roles in the manufacturing operations systems landscape. Connectivity and integration between all manufacturing, business applications and more is increasingly important when facing the current challenges. To achieve this requires an enterprise application framework or information architecture.
Architectures for Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 receive special attention. We explain integration and communication standards, like OPC UA and MQTT. Leveraging the benefits of Smart Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 requires standardization and precisely defined processes and products. When first time right, efficiency and effectiveness are the goals, then the need is to define and maintain manufacturing master data carefully.
