When people, machines and industrial processes are intelligently networked, one speaks of Industry 4.0: The interlocking of production and state-of-the-art information and communication technology enables tailor-made products according to individual customer requirements.

Our use case is the first model for the implementation of „Industry 4.0 dimensions“ at the THWS. This project is about a small model pick-up truck, which can be configured almost arbitrarily and is then produced by different manufacturing processes. The individual machines are controlled by a transponder, which enables the assignment of individual configurations from the cloud. In this cloud, the respective recorded process data is stored, which can later be retrieved via the QR code on the roof of the pick-up.
