Towards a Model-Driven Architecture Process for Developing Industry 4.0 Ap

Christoph Binder, Christian Neureiter, and Goran Lastro

Abstract—Emerging technologies in the industrial area lead to continuously increased complexity concerning systems development. Varying approaches dealing with the same problem generate a number of heterogeneous solutions instead of concentrating on a mutual toolset in order to provide a common basis. Having recognized this problem, the German industry introduced the Reference Architecture Model for Industry 4.0 (RAMI 4.0), proposed in the standardized technical specification DIN SPEC 91345. Providing a three-dimensional model on how to structure industrial systems, the starting point for the discussion on how to deal with the upcoming complexity has been set. However, due to the current state of research, only the frame to work in has been specified. In this paper the idea of following an approach based on Model-Driven-Architecture (MDA) in order to develop future industrial systems is introduced. To achieve this, firstly the concepts of RAMI 4.0 are analyzed and a detailed description regarding their applicability for developing specific architectures is given. The approach itself and its application are demonstrated by a real-world case study, which is created with the help of the RAMI Toolbox.

Index Terms—Model driven architecture (MDA), RAMI 4.0, systems engineering, process modeling.
