4th AutomationML PlugFest 2017


The 4th AutomationML PlugFest will take place from 11th to 12th of October 2017 in Berlin (Germany) with the slogan:

"Just do it: Plug AutomationML interfaces"

The 2017 PlugFest is dedicated to developers of AutomationML interfaces and for AutomationML data modellers. Together with AML experts from the AutomationML e.V., you are invited to test, improve, and discuss your AutomationML solutions. Trainers for Modelling and Developing will be on site helping the attendees to find a solution for their specific problem, for C# and Java.

Come and see the latest news around AutomationML, e.g. a data exchange solution from ABB that offers data exchange across 20 tool platforms under industrial conditions gaining significant cost savings and quality improvements. Learn how ABB solved tricky problems as user management and dealing with heterogeneous semantics. In a workshop, you can exercise a concrete example AutomationML data exchange in a heterogeneous tool environment, across different semantics without an agreed standard data model. Learn the principles how to efficiently deal with multiple semantics.

There will be plenty of time for plugging software tools with AutomationML. Experienced trainers will be on site helping answer questions regarding modelling of data and developing AutomationML export/import interfaces. Additionally, tool pitches and idea/questions pitches can be submitted by each attendee. Those will be, then, included into the agenda. Besides the plugging, presentations and a workshop focusing on AutomationML implementation specific topics will be provided. The 2017 PlugFest has the motto “Just do it: Plug AutomationML interfaces” and is, therefore, an event from developers for developers.
