The term 'Industry 4.0' was introduced the first time in Germany at the Hanover fair in 2011 and is a central focus of the Federal Government's Digital Agenda. It is supporting and promoting the digitization of industry and has the potential to bring about profound transformation to efficient factory manufacturing.

The implementation strategy forms the basis for all future work. It not only records the research agenda that has been pursued to date, but also lays out core components of 'Industry 4.0'. Given the complex and broad starting point of the platform work nowadays, a framework is to be established that allows for 'Industry 4.0' reference architecture to developed - a set of parameters that can be used in order to press ahead with digitization and comprehensive networking in production.

The substantive work of the platform is initially being undertaken in five working groups (reference architecture, standardisation / research and innovation / security of networked systems / legal framework / labour, training). The platform's governing body includes Economic Affairs Minister and Research Minister as well as representatives from business, science, and trade unions. This presentation is intended to provide an introduction to the platform 'Industry 4.0', its potential, on opportunity and restrictions.

Thomas Schulz has a Master of Science degree in engineering technology. He has many years' experience in manufacturing organization and process automation with a number of printed publications and presentations. He is currently employed by GE (General Electric) Intelligent Platforms division and is responsible for GE Partner business covering Central and Eastern Europe.

Since 2013 he has been a member of the Working Group covering reference architecture and standardization of the platform 'Industry 4.0' - the strategic initiative and high-tech strategy of the Federal Republic of Germany. He has been actively participating, as part of a team of authors, working on Chapter 6: Reference architecture, standardization and standardization of the implementation of the strategy for the 'Industry 4.0' results report.

Recently, significant efforts are under way in the development and implementation of Cyber Physical Production Systems (CPPS) by exploiting fast and highly connected production systems and combining them with novel industrial communication and control strategies. This paper addresses the need for reconfigurable approaches in production planning, logistics as well as in Manufacturing Execution Control (MES) to address induced complexities under the umbrella of Open Innovation and Industry 4.0. A fast reconfigurable and adaptive production monitoring and control approach has therefore been proposed in several industrial application sectors. It encompasses the configuration of manufacturing setups to enable co-development in a distributed production environment, exploiting ICT technologies to produce mass customized products and eventually presents advanced human-robot-collaboration systems. The methodology and physical building blocks and components are being tested and validated in several research and development projects related to open innovation and factories of the future.

The following application results will be presented:
1. Semi-automated handling of complex geometries in hazardous environments,
2. Laundry logistics and shop-floor automation in conjunction with RFID systems,
3. Production of small lot sizes, in particular assembly processes, assisted by human-robot interaction.

In addition, the recently established Model Factory at the BTU (Chair of Automation Technology) is introduced. It assembles all elements of development, production and maintenance of industrial equipment and products. As a result, different implementations and production scenarios can be tested and validated in the experimental environment under real conditions. Newly developed CPS components can be integrated for validation purposes and industrial pilot cases can be analyzed in a more time and capacity efficient manner.

Data Security and system integrity are prerequisite for successful implementation of Industry 4.0, the application of "Internet of Things" (IoT) concepts and technologies in industrial settings. Especially, as with smart factories and connected industrial production, economical assets such as machinery, Intellectual Property as well as product and service quality are at stake and hence the overall competitive ability of the business itself. For example, advanced factory automation uses networking to integrate the entire supply chain from supplier to customer to enabling Lot-Size-1 or customized production. In such a connected environment, identity of machines and personnel must be verified and communications must be protected end-to-end to make sure that system integrity is maintained. Therefore, all elements of the system from customer to supplier must be identified and secured adequately to protect systems and components from unauthorized access, attacks, fraud and sabotage.

Several attempts have been made in the past to apply purely software-based security solutions. Unfortunately, software - due to its nature - bears several significant weaknesses. Software is written code, and code can be read and analyzed. And once it is analyzed, it can be modified to the requirements of an attacker and system integrity can be broken.

However, software can be protected by hardware: hardware protects the processing and storage of code by using encryption, fault and manipulation detection, and by providing secure data storage. This has been proven by extensive experience from the areas of trusted computing and the use of secure elements in mobile phones. Following the same principles, hardware-based security tailored to industry-specific requirements provides a trust anchor for digitized and connected industrial production and helps to secure physical as well as intellectual property.

After a brief overview over the Bosch-RtP1-Plant in Reutlingen the presentation will show how highly automated production areas benefit from Industrie4.0 methods. An example will be shown how connection of things and services enables highest throughput of production tools as well as an extended usage of a transport system. A second example will highlight a modular automation concept that has been developed by using local intelligence instead of global logistics-management. Modularity ensures a simple rollout of high-automation in an existing fab-environment.

Dr.Thomas Schuler started his industrial career in 1998 at Robert Bosch GmbH after he recieved a doctorate degree in Physics from University of Stuttgart. Several years later after working on different positions in wafer production he entered the field of high automation in the 200mm Wafer Fab, where he is in charge of many automation solutions implemented at the Bosch-Wafer-Manufacturing site.

Smart communications between production equipment and factory IT solutions is a key element of
Industry 4.0. Starting in the 1980's, the semiconductor industry developed SECS (SEMI Equipment
Communications Standards) and related EStandards
which are widely implemented in semiconductor
front end production factories and in the solar industry. A subset of the standards categorized as
is a relatively new SEMI Equipment Data Acquisition (EDA) set of standards built on
Web technologies. It provides a more flexible interface between production equipment
and factory IT solutions and improves some data collection limitations of the existing SECS/GEM
(Generic Model for Equipment & Control of Manufacturing Equipment) interface.
This presentation introduces InterfaceA
featuring a comprehensive selfdescriptive
capability. Major
differences compared to SECS/GEM communication will be highlighted. As with many other new
technologies, InterfaceA
has not been spared from its own challenges which last even until today. At
GLOBALFOUNDRIES selected InterfaceA
vendor deliverables lag behind expectations for meeting
factories full production ramp capability, to include InterfaceA
reliability. In part, this may be due to
the fact that a comprehensive and widely accepted InterfaceA
test suite has not been available at
not in a comparable scope as to what was available when SECS/GEM and 300mm automation standards
were ramping in the Semiconductor Industry. Consequently we will touch on GLOBALFOUNDRIES'
test methodology and associated test software with examples of common problems found.
A discussion of current data collection and equipment control challenges in semiconductor industry and
an outlook on a broader application will summarize the presentation.
