IEC61499: Portability Standard that Unleashes Industry 4.0
Originally published on Industry 4.0 Blog by AnnetteBurak | September 29, 2020 05:59 PM
The benefits of Industry 4.0 and IIoT use cases for industry are well documented. But failure to adopt digital age industrial automation standards that are truly open is costly on all fronts:
• unnecessary expense • delays in rolling out innovative manufacturing plant designs • lost business opportunity
• big engineering efforts
• lack of modularization inhibiting agility
• barriers that inhibit adaptability and bog down innovation
… and the list goes on.
Download this white paper to learn how the IEC 61499 standard sets a foundation for industrial automation application portability that creates wide-ranging benefits, including: easy IT/OT system convergence, improved return-on-investment on software applications that can run independent of any hardware platform, and engineering design efficiency that radically speeds up new product time-to-market.
