In the context of a literature review, a total of nine application scenarios (use cases) are chosen in order to present the current status of technology development in the context of Industry 4.0 (cf. smart manufacturing) for selected industrial sectors. To this end, the concepts, fundamentals and relationships of Industry 4.0, the basic technological components as well as the required reference architectures will be presented.
The application scenarios taken from the current literature are then summarized with respect to content and classified into the described Industry 4.0 concepts with regard to the paradigms they address and the basic components used. The study concentrates in particular on application scenarios from the fields of manufacturing and production technology in mechanical and plant engineering. In addition, the scenarios are mirrored in the three dimensions of the reference architecture RAMI 4.0 as a macroscopic view, and the aspects regarding the Industry 4.0 component are worked out as the microscopic view.
Finally, the application scenarios are evaluated as to whether they fundamentally consider or take into account aspects related to functional safety, industrial security and their interactions with each other. These evaluations are based on the descriptions in the quoted literature sources.
