4.1.2 Relevance to OPC UA Model ToC Previous Next

For OPC UA modelling it is required to respect main characteristics of flat glass processing:

  • Glass processing is very individual and a good example of industrial batch size of a production.
  • As a result, all machinery must be able to receive information on single glass element base in contrast to mass production.
  • Glass processing is very often based on intensive co-working between machine and human. Thus, processes with non-digitized interfaces shall be possible.
