MARKET4.0 Metal domain DATA SPACE based on IDS RA

MARKET4.0 Metal domain DATA SPACE based on IDS RA
Summary

Challenge: Today, the selection of a new manufacturing equipment requires a big technical effort on the customer side, determining the most suitable equipment for his requirements. The customer must browse on the internet, assist to trade shows and talk with commercial and technical experts.

Solution:  The MARKET4.0 metal domain data space describes a robust and efficient solution for the connection, based on the IDS RA (Reference Architecture) of the equipment manufacturers’ distributed repositories, with a MARKET4.0 service that analyses the customer requirements and identifies and presents the most suitable equipment for a certain metal domain manufacturing process. The connection is made through IDS connectors and the repositories and service are connected with the central IDS modules (Clearing House, Broker) in order to guarantee a trusted data transaction.

    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.
