Production machines that autonomously communicate with each other; information technology that intelligently interconnects machines, people and materials; customers and partners that are seamlessly integrated into the business and production processes – the digitalisation of industry promises big opportunities such as the optimisation of value-creating processes or making production more flexible and individual.
But the fourth industrial revolution also entails challenges: The task is to make interconnected production safe and to protect people and the environment against accidents. Unauthorised access must be prevented and the production needs to be secured against external manipulation. And the systems should ultimately be scalable and make the future implementation of requirements possible.
However, only very few machines and plant manufacturers have the in-depth experience with intelligent networks – as is the case with the majority of manufacturing companies. Comprehensive knowledge about the relevant safety standards and the legal provisions is also seldom available.
