Assessing the Suitability of ArchiMate to Model Industry 4.0 Production Systems
Horstkemper D, Stahmann P, Hellingrath B
Future smart factories will rely on the integration of cyber-physical systems with traditional information systems, requiring proper planning of the involved interconnections. The ArchiMate modeling language contains modeling elements to be able to model such interactions. Within this work it is assessed if the current modeling capabilities are sufficient to model Industry 4.0 production systems and possible extensions are proposed where needed.
