Motivation for This Book The OPC Foundation provides specifications for data exchange in industrial au- mation. There is a long history of COM/DCOM-based specifications, most pro- nent OPC Data Access (DA), OPC Alarms and Events (A&E), and OPC Historical Data Access (HDA), which are widely accepted in the industry and implemented by almost every system targeting industrial automation. Now the OPC Foundation has released a new generation of OPC specifications called OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA). With OPC UA, the OPC Foundation fulfills a technology shift from the retiring COM/DCOM technology to a servi- oriented architecture providing data in a platform-independent manner via Web Services or its own optimized TCP-based protocol. OPC UA unifies the previous specifications into one single address space capable of dealing with current data, alarms and events and the history of current data as well as the event history. A remarkable enhancement of OPC UA is the Address Space Model by which v- dors can expose a rich and extensible information model using object-oriented techniques. OPC UA scales well from intelligent devices, controllers, DCS, and SCADA systems up to MES and ERP systems. It also scales well in its ability to provide information; on the lower end, a model similar to Classic OPC can be used, providing only base information, while at the upper end, highly sophisticated models can be described, providing a large amount of metadata including complex type hierarchies.

The first successful finished Smart Grid Prototype Projects deliver new requirements and best practices to meet them. These solutions will be the base for the upcoming norms and standards in the near future. This domain is not only part of one Standard developing Organization (SDO), but also of many different organizations like ITU, ISO, IEC and additionally for the electro mobility part the SAE. This results in many standards which are based on different aspects. Furthermore the European mirror organizations (ETSI,CEN, CENELEC) as well as the German mirror groups of these groups are involved, which are delivering further rules and adaption for the local market. Because of this diversity of organizations involved, it is difficult for the local companies (which includes energy utility, manufacturer and software producer specialized on integration) to identify the relevant trends, standardization groups and technologies necessary. With the EU Mandate M490 to CEN/CNELEC and TESI and the Commission being a driving force (e.g. ftp://ftp.cencenelec.eu/CENELEC/Smartgrid/SmartGridFinalReport.pdf and http://www.cenelec.eu/aboutcenelec/whatwedo/technologysectors/smartgrids.html) standardization becomes more and more important – but it’s complex and not easy to be understood. Here at OFFIS, we provide training but we are always asked for textbooks on our tranings. Based on our modules for the SG tranings, we would estimate the following chapters to be relevant to SG stakeholders in standardization (roughly 16-20 pages per chapter).

What is OPC UA is a very simple question. The answer when you are discussing a complex technology architecture like OPC UA isn't as simple. OPC UA which I will refer to as UA throughout this book is the next generation of OPC technology. UA is a more secure, open, reliable mechanism for transferring information between Servers and Clients. It provides more open transports, better security and a more complete information model than OPC which I will refer to as OPC Classic. UA provides a very flexible and adaptable mechanism for moving data between Enterprise type systems and the kinds of controls, monitoring devices and sensors that interact with real world data.

OPC stands for Openness, Productivity, and Collaboration, symbolizing the new possibilities opening up in automation technology. The main objective of the new OPC generation Unified Architecture is to facilitate global interoperability and to define an information and data-exchange mechanism that is service oriented, multivendor, and cross-platform capable - from the field device on the shop floor to the ERP system on the factory level. This book includes information on: - the birth, objectives, and fundamentals of OPC and OPC UA, - the technical specifications that currently exist and those that are in preparation, - the procedures for designing and implementing components, - a transparent presentation of the technology through application possibilities and examples, and - the outlook for the future of OPC and OPC UA. Important perspectives and updates in this new edition include - the new era and the exciting application possibilities developing with OPC UA, - the new OPC UA specifications, - the development of OPC products for Windows, Linux, and VxWorks, - companion standards like FDI (EDD, FDT), ADI, or PLCopen (IEC 61131-3), - new interoperability applications with SAP or Beckhoff Server embedded, and - migration strategies from Classic OPC to OPC UA. Fundamentals, implementation, and application of Classic OPC and OPC UA are discussed comprehensively in this book. CD-ROM: The included CD-ROM contains industrial OPC Server and OPC Client tools for evaluation, and also several demonstration programs for development, commissioning, testing, and for the simulation of OPC Clients and Servers. The OPC Toolbox is suitable for Windows NT/2000/XP/Vista, Windows 7, Windows CE, Linux, and VxWorks. Furthermore you will find videos and presentations of OPC UA.

The scope of the research presented includes semantic-based integration of data services in smart grids achieved through following the proposed (S2)In-approach developed corresponding to design science guidelines. This approach identifies standards and specifications, which are integrated in order to build the basis for the (S2)In-architecture. A process model is introduced in the beginning, which serves as framework for developing the target architecture. The first step of the process stipulates to define requirements for smart grid ICT-architectures being derived from established studies and divided into two classes: architecture and non-functional requirements (NFR). Based on the architecture requirements, the following specifications have been basically selected: The IEC CIM representing a domain-specific data model, the OPC UA being a communication standard with special respects to information modeling, and WSMO as an approach to realize the concept of Semantic Web Services. The next step specifies to develop both, a semantic information model (integration of CIM and OPC UA) and semantic services (integration of CIM and WSMO). These two components are then combined to obtain the target architecture, which allows precise descriptions of services as well as their combination and semi-automatic execution. Finally, the NFR are considered in order to evaluate the architecture based on simulated, representative use cases.

Das in diesem Buch vorgestellte Konzept schließt eine Lücke im Forschungsstand zum Bereich prozessnaher Echtzeitkommunikation für rekonfigurierbare Produktionssysteme. Aktuelle in der Automatisierungstechnik eingesetzte Echtzeitzeitnetzwerke zeichnen sich durch hohe Konfigurationsaufwände aus, welche bei der Inbetriebnahme und nach jeder Rekonfiguration anfallen. Für die Realisierung „Plug and Produce“-fähiger Anwendungen ist es notwendig, diese Aufwände möglichst zu reduzieren. Hierzu wird in diesem Buch die Entwicklung eines Verfahrens zur automatischen Konfiguration aktueller in der Automatisierungstechnik eingesetzter Echtzeitnetzwerke beschrieben. Konkret werden die Echtzeit-Netzwerke Profinet, Ethernet/IP, Ethernet Powerlink und Ethercat betrachtet. Für diese Netzwerke wird zuerst untersucht, welche Informationen für eine Inbetriebnahme notwendig sind. Darauf aufbauend wird das Konzept zur automatischen Konfiguration entwickelt. Anhand einer Probandenstudie wird exemplarisch für Profinet gezeigt, inwiefern der Inbetriebnahme-Aufwand durch die automatische Konfiguration reduziert werden kann.

This gorgeously packaged (yet affordable) children's fantasy has become an instant classic since its original hardcover release in 2005, as well as a perennial bestseller for Fantagraphics in three hardcover printings. This paperback edition includes five new pages not included previously. The Clouds Above is a rip-roaring adventure about a kid named Simon, who skips school one day with his cat, Jack. They climb a magic staircase leading skyward, encounter a sad cloud named Perch and get mixed up in a conflict involving him, some nasty storm clouds and an irritable flock of birds. Will they make back home safely in time for school tomorrow? This brilliant, full-color graphic novel doubles as a wondrous children's book, recalling such classics as Where the Wild Things Are, The Wizard of Oz and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, with its depiction of a fantastic world that lurks just around the corner from reality and that only children know exists.

Masterarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Ingenieurwissenschaften - Wirtschaftsingenieurwesen, Note: 2,3, Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) (Institut für Industriebetriebslehre und Industrielle Produktion (IIP)), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Diese Masterarbeit behandelt die Vision der vierten industriellen – informationstechnologischen – Revolution, für die es keine einheitliche, branchenübergreifende Definition gibt. Industrie 4.0 ist das Zukunftsthema auf Messen, Kongressen, in Zeitungsartikeln und in der deutschen Wirtschaft. Als Hightech-Strategie 2020 der Bundesregierung steht das Thema stellvertretend für die Chance, die Wettbewerbsfähigkeit und die Produktivität des produktionsintensiven Standorts Deutschlands, dem „führenden Fabrikausrüster weltweit“, zu erhöhen. Liegt das Projekt Industrie 4.0 in einer noch entfernten Zukunft oder befinden wir uns bereits mitten im Wandel? Dieser Frage nachzugehen soll u.a. das Ziel dieser Masterarbeit sein. Im Mittelpunkt steht die intelligente, vernetzte und wandelbare Fabrik, die Smart Factory. Sie ist modular, in Fraktalen aufgebaut. Steuerung und Organisation erfolgen durch die intelligenten Produkte, die nun einen digitalen Lebenslauf mitführen, dezentral wie in einem „Ameisenstaat“. Diese kommunizieren miteinander, mit den Maschinen und Ressourcen und entscheiden über ihren Produktionsablauf. Der Arbeiter wird durch Assistenzsysteme geleitet, wie zum Beispiel Pick-by-Vision, Gestensteuerung und industrielle Tablets. Damit Maschinen, Rohlinge, Ladungsträger, etc. als CPS hierarchielos in Verbindung treten können, bekommen diese eine IP-Fähigkeit im Internet der Dinge und benutzen zum Datenaustausch zwischen ERP-Ebene und MES-Ebene den herstellerunabhängigen OPC-UA-Standard. Der Anschluss neuer Produktionsmodule erfolgt über eine Plug-and- Produce-Schnittstelle. Maschinen sollen sich somit selbst konfigurieren und optimieren. Durch die IT-Anbindung steigen die Anforderungen an Safety (Betriebssicherheit) und Security (Angriffssicherheit). Gerade die Datensicherheit wird zur „Gretchenfrage“ stilisiert. Die zahlreichen Daten der Produktionsressourcen werden zukünftig in Echtzeit analysiert, um Maschinenausfälle vorzeitig zu verhindern (Condition Monitoring) und Trends und Prognosen zu erstellen (Big Data).

Logistic problems can rarely be solved satisfyingly within one single scientific discipline. This cross-sectional character is taken into account by the Research Cluster for Dynamics in Logistics with a combination of economical, information and production technical and enterprise-oriented research approaches. In doing so, the interdisciplinary cooperation between university, research institutes and enterprises for the solution of logistic problems is encouraged. This book comprises the edited proceedings of the first International Conference on Dynamics in Logistics LDIC 2007. The scope of the conference was concerned with the identification, analysis, and description of the dynamics of logistic processes and networks. The spectrum reached from the planning and modelling of processes over innovative methods like autonomous control and knowledge management to the new technologies provided by radio frequency identification, mobile communication, and networking. Two invited papers and of 42 contributed papers on various subjects give an state-of-art overview on dynamics in logistics. They include routing in dynamic logistic networks, RFID in logistics and manufacturing networks, supply chain control policies, sustainable collaboration, knowledge management and service models in logistics, container logistics, autonomous control in logistics, and logistic process modelling.
