Human services are increasingly being replaced by machines: in a production line where the employee used to drill the hole, a robot arm now takes over this task.
The topic of “services” is essential for Industry 4.0 AAS, for example when describing parts that become a new product within an industrial manufacturing process. The service is inextricably linked to the products described in ECLASS, regardless of whether it was carried out by an employee or a machine.
To represent these “services” or “functions”, which also include industrial production methods, a very good content model has already been developed in the past to describe such processes.
In the Expert Group 25 “General Services” we are looking for support from experts and companies who can further advance the topic together with us. For further information, please contact the ECLASS Head Office or directly Stefan Willms (email@example.com), head of Expert Group 25.
