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.
