  • Module Type Package - Ein modulares Zukunftskonzept für verschiedene Branchen: Artikel: MTP IN DER GEBÄUDEAUTOMATION-STANDARDS SETZEN, HERSTELLERUNABHÄNGIG AGIEREN
    Krüttgen, Michael, 2022, Publisher: Wago Kontakttechnik GmbH & Co.KG, Hansastr. 27, 32423 Minden
    Today's production environment is characterised by rapid change and the demands on machine builders and plant operators are constantly changing. In the context of modular automation, the "Module Type Package" (MTP) has taken on a crucial key function, as it enables both integrators and end users to act flexibly and quickly and thus react quickly to changes. But what are the benefits of the Module Type Package in addition to its traditional use in the process industry? In our free report, four experts provide you with valuable inspiration on the respective areas of application.

  • atp-Hauptbeitrag: Informationstechnische Standardisierung prozessnaher TGA - Optimierung des Engineerings für Planung und Betrieb
    Michael Göbel (Bayer AG), Jörg Schauß (Böhringer Ingelheim), Sebastian Penndorf (BASF), Michael Krüttgen (TH Köln), Jochen Müller (TH Köln), 2024, Publisher: Vulkan-Verlag GmbH
    In practice, there is a lack of basic specifications and standards for the information technology mapping of process-related MEP and BA. A lack of accessibility and availability of standardised information makes engineering and operation more difficult. In 2024, the NE196 will be published with a device profile of digital twins, relating to the aspects of process control, simulation and plant asset management, based on the cross-lifecycle information model of the I4.0 asset administration shell. The effort required for data handling is reduced and rule-based applications become possible.
