Working Groups

In this working group, manufacturers of drive technology are working together on a central challenge of Industry 4.0:the standardized possibility for data and information exchange between components, machines and services.
On April 17, 2018, leading manufacturers from the power transmission engineering sector met at the kick-off meeting for the VDMA Industry 4.0/OPC UA drive technology working group. In the inaugural meeting, fundamental issues were discussed and the first measures taken for further work.

The manufacturing industry has clearly understood that predictive maintenance (PM) is a key issue, a precondition for efficient, sustainable service delivery in the future. Progress in the technologies required by PM is swift and significant.
