The ChoConnect Showcase has already demonstrated the advantages of the Weihenstephan standards for simple and standardized machine networking between various vendors based on OPC UA. For this purpose, a few new data points have already been defined and made available by the machines for M2M communication and MES connection.
Now, in the WS Choc project, an industry-specific standard for the confectionery industry is to be developed together with confectionery production companies, machine manufacturers and IT system providers, which will provide information for
- standardized M2M communication
- OEE Analysis
- Quality assurance
- weak point analysis
- easy line integration.
All companies related to confectionery production can participate in the project. The active participation in the project requires the membership in the Weihenstephan Standards industry user group. The costs for the necessary WS company license are
- 5.000€ for companies with less than 1000 employees and
- 8.000€ for companies with more than 1000 employees.
