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.

  • Describe the roles of the various MOM solutions
