Classical mechanical engineering is undergoing change. Driven by digitalization, the classical disciplines of mechanical engineering, such as

  • technical mechanics
  • thermodynamics or
  • material technology get extended by, for example

  • automation technology and
  • virtual product development. In this context, the companies of this working group have identified OPC UA as a standardized interface for data exchange. As a result, they are working on features, use cases and information models that apply across the board to the entire mechanical engineering sector.
