Abstract

Currently, the term Industrie 4.0 stands for the next transition of the industrialized society and is particularly used inside the manufacturing industry. The main aim is to use digitalization to improve competitiveness and future-orientation in high-cost countries. While so far mainly classical automation, information and communication technologists try to establish conceptual solutions, this presentation will give insights into some fundamental problems of networked value chains that have not been addressed extensively yet. These fundamentals are relevant not only to manufacturing but to a large set of technological fields and we can show: Control systems technology must provide a decisive contribution to answer the open questions.
