The Versatile Production System (VPS) is a manufacturing plant in a laboratory scale, where usually sensors, actuators, bus systems, automation components and software from different manufacturers are considered. The VPS is a hybrid technical process, considering both continuous and discrete process elements with a focus on the information processes and communication technologies from the plant level down to the sensor level. It thus provides an ideal multivendor platform for testing and validation of innovative technologies and products and for their interoperability. This demonstrator is used for verification of many different projects.
