Simplified and Efficient Selection of Suitable Manufacturing Equipment: For the equipment manufacturer, IDSRAM permits the trusted connection of the equipment repository with external apps (ESS), permitting (in a time-saving process) the best selection of a manufacturing equipment, thanks to accessible data that where not accessible before.
The MARKET4.0 Metal Domain Data Space propose two solutions:
- The first solution permits the connection of equipment manufacter repositories with a single connector (LMS/TNO). The benefit of this solution is that equipment manufacturers do not require knowledge of IDS RA and it is the connector owner who has it.
- The second solution has the benefit to connect one service with several data providers through several IDS connectors. The benefit of this second solution is that the data provider controls the data flow and is independent of the connector provider.
