BaSys 4.2

An open platform for the fourth industrial revolution

BaSys 4.2

Development of an open system that forms the basis for the 4th industrial revolution with the goal of realizing easily-adaptable production systems.

Project description

The economy is on the threshold of a 4th industrial revolution. Against the backdrop of economic challenges in Germany, the purpose of digitalization is to enable manufacturing companies to successfully adjust to volatile markets, new global competitors, rising numbers of product variants and more and more customer-individualized products, all the way down to batch size 1 manufacturing.

The only production systems that will be in a position to meet this challenge, plus efficiently and cost-effectively carry out small-batch manufacturing, are those that are highly-adaptable. The significant reduction in retooling costs that this environment requires calls for new types of system architectures that are centered around flexible production. The centralized control of small-batch manufacturing cannot be carried out efficiently in every case. In some environments decentralized approaches that can quickly adapt to new production characteristics are required as well. That means suitable production resources have to be quickly located, analyzed and selected.

In the BaSys4.2 project, fortiss is collaborating with the consortium partners to develop an open platform for the realization of 4th generation production systems. This involves connecting and integrating the existing technologies to enable the implementation of Industry 4.0 applications. Apart from an open source platform for digital twins in administrative shells, the consortium is also developing configuration services designed to automate or streamline the engineering and the transformation of production systems.  The planned basis system – BaSys - will be used to realize this platform as a complete “spike” that can one day be flexibly expanded as an open platform through industrial supplier products.

Research contribution

In the BaSys project, fortiss is examining processes for the automated configuration of production systems, and the corresponding components, with the aim of enabling the fast transformation of such systems required for Industry 4.0 scenarios. This approach includes on the one hand concepts for the automated or tool-supported structuring of the production control systems. On the other hand, in addition to the semi-automated adaptation of the control systems, the concepts also encompass the automated installation of new control programs and similar software components.
