Month " , " Pay per Unit " etc.) is raising hopes among these providers of
being able to establish themselves in the market with benefit and
service-oriented models;
* Associations and co-operations for digitalisation and IIoT - strategic
alliances between mechanical engineering and software companies -
are frequently pursuing the goal of creating an open,
manufacturer-neutral IIoT environment and corresponding standards
based on leading software and communication technologies (e.g.
Open Industry 4.0 Alliance: Endress + Hauser, KUKA, MULTIVAC,
Pepperl + Fuchs, SAP, SVA, Voith et al.; Open Manufacturing Platform:
BMW and Microsoft, umati: machine tools, etc.).
* Users/operators of machines and plants - on the one hand hold the
greatest expert knowledge in the everyday use of machines and plants
and the associated technologies; they also know the most about the
problems in the background; on the other hand, they are also the
strongest " beneficiaries " of ongoing technical development, including
digitalisation in all its facets.

users expect an increasingly high variability of manufacturing
systems: it must be possible to manufacture the widest possible range
of products in small to medium quantities harnessing the same
system;
* Production plants must be scalable and offer options for
cost-effective subsequent expansion of existing systems in terms of
capacity and output;
* Declining OEM margins on new installations combined with high
end user expectations for maintenance and service make the
expansion of LCC-based business models (LCC = Life Cycle Costs)
with new business concepts (including maintenance, service, retrofit
services, e.g. " Predictive Maintenance " ) more and more economical
for OEMs as well, and therefore more meaningful;
* Users' expectations of the interoperability of machine modules and
sub-systems are constantly on the rise; machines and machine
modules from different suppliers should be as easy as possible to
combine in a single production line. This results in greater
comparability and tougher competition for OEMs.
All these requirements can only be reconciled very efficiently in
machine and plant construction, both in technical and economical
terms, if production systems are consistently modularised, scalable in
various stages of expansion and, in the final instance, also networkable.

Moreover, digitalisation in the field of capital goods cannot be
viewed as an isolated trend, but must be embedded in key current
trends. The most important ones are:
* " Industry 4.0 / industrial production of individual products " - End
