Primary classification: Study Item
Target Release: 3GPP Release 17
The manufacturing industry is currently subject to a fundamental change, which is often referred to as the "Fourth Industrial Revolution" or simply "Industry 4.0“ or Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The main goals of IIoT/Industry 4.0 are ―among others― the improvement of flexibility, versatility, resource efficiency, cost efficiency, worker support, and quality of industrial production and logistics.
With the advent of IIoT/Industry 4.0 and 5G, this may change fundamentally, since only wireless connectivity can provide the degree of flexibility, mobility, versatility, and ergonomics that is required for the Factories of the Future. Thus, 5G may significantly contribute to revolutionising the way how goods are produced, shipped, and serviced throughout their whole lifecycle.
Investigate and analyse general applicability of Factories of the Future related cyber-physical control applications in 3GPP TS 22.261;
Develop key issues, corresponding architecture requirements to make the service enabler for “Factories of the Future” applications over 3GPP networks;
Providing customized solutions for Factory applications to cross-layer optimize and redesign the actual applications which now based on the classical wired cable connection world.
