An Experimental Training Production Line to Demonstrate the Basics of Industry 4.0
MetadataShow full item record
The paper deals with appropriate possibilities, instrumentation, and technologies for purposes of education, presentation, teaching and research, and development of technologies and procedures of Industry 4.0 ideas, and their implementation in case studies of Factories of the Future. Through the physical module-based production lines of a FESTO Didactic company authors present technologies, standards, and principles of Industry 4.0. They are persuaded, that after some years of simple presentation of ideas and visions, it is necessary to provide a step from theory to the praxis of the Industry 4.0 technologies in the fully standardized matter. Paper presents a state of the art of an enhanced Experimental Education production line, the Cyber-Physical (CP) Factory of the company Festo Didactic. They show existing properties of the technology, stemming from 2016, its disadvantages and provide a proposal on how to enhance CP Factory towards a physical system, implementing and providing properties of fully decentralized control of automatic production systems in a standardized way.
