How can you quickly integrate your machines on the shop floor?

This study is currently in progress and will conclude by the end of 2023.

Challenge and Motivation

  • Machines and plants must be quickly integrable and adaptable
  • Plug & Produce promises a solution, but often fails in technical implementation


  • Automatic machine identification and integration in running production processes 
  • Reduction of manual efforts and overall reconfiguring time


  • In-depth research and evaluation on best practices 
  • Concept for a straight forward implementation of the Plug & Produce approach based on RAMI and ASS
  • Plug & Produce-enabled robot capable of automatic integration in running production processes
