Without IT and OT convergence there is no industrial transformation, let alone modern building management and several other areas where the silos between different traditional systems dissapear due to, among others, IoT on one hand and where IT and OT meet on the other, which is the case in close to all industries. The essence of IT and OT convergence revolves around data (and the systems where they have been sitting for many years), processes and people/teams. Again, IoT is key here as also the Internet of Things starts with the capture (and subsequent analyses/leverage of data). It is safe to say that Industry 4.0 is only possible because of IoT. The technological essence of Industry 4.0 sometimes is also called cyber-physical convergence.
Five years later, in 2011, Dr. Kagermann, Dr. Wolfgang Wahlster of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) and Dr. Wolf-Dieter Lukas from the Federal Ministry of Research and Education presented the results of the work of the advisory group across various domains, including Industrie 4.0, which from then on became broadly known.
Typical solutions and technologies in this vertical integration include PLCs which control manufacturing processes and sit on the control level, SCADA which enables various production process level and supervisory tasks and is de facto commonly used in industrial control systems, MES or manufacturing execution systems for the management level and intelligent ERP for the enterprise level, which is the highest level in this hierarchical picture.
A quick look at some of the evolutions in the top 3 levels of our classic automation pyramid which is starting to look like a mesh as systems start speaking the same languages of industrial protocols and IIoT.
Impartiality is the governing principle of how BSI provides its services. Impartiality means acting fairly and equitably in its dealings with people and in all business operations. It means decisions are made free from any engagements of influences which could affect the objectivity of decision making.As an accredited certification body, BSI Assurance cannot offer certification to clients where they have also received consultancy from another part of the BSI Group for the same management system. Likewise, we do not offer consultancy to clients when they also seek certification to the same management system.The British Standards Institution (BSI, a company incorporated by Royal Charter), performs the National Standards Body (NSB) activity in the UK. BSI, together with its Group Companies, also offers a broad portfolio of business solutions other than NSB activity that help businesses worldwide to improve results through Standards-based best practice (such as certification, self-assessment tool, software, product testing, information products and training). 2b1af7f3a8
