IndustryFusion Release 0.1 5MAR

IndustryFusion Release 0.1

The time has come - the first release of IndustryFusion has been rolled out in the IBN 4.0 Smart Factory at the association's headquarters in Bad Wörishofen!

Since the official launch of the open source project at the end of October 2019, development has been at full speed. At the annual community event in November 2019, there was already the first sneak preview. Now the current development status can be tested live in the 0.1 release and used (prototypically) for the digital transformation of your own smart products.

Features of IndustryFusion Release 0.1

  • Standardized communication between assets from different manufacturers
  • Overview and management of assets in the Smart Factory
  • Representation of the Smart Factory with several locations, halls, rooms
  • Display of real-time asset data in standardized form
  • Display of operating hours for maintenance purposes

"Even though this is currently still a very early version of the networking solution, we are already showing the first core features that set IndustryFusion apart from other Industry 4.0 solutions. The plants come from different manufacturers and already send their data to the smart factory in a standardized way - and it's all open source."

Chairman of the Board
