5G in mechanical and plant engineering Guideline for the integration of 5G in product and production
With the Guideline 5G in Mechanical and Plant Engineering and the Use Cases developed, the VDMA supports its members in identifying the potentials, challenges and possible applications of 5G in products and production, so that companies can carefully assess the utility value and successfully develop an implementation strategy.
With the description of the use cases, the guide provides clarity about the possible applications of 5G and other radio technologies and addresses important questions with a special focus on the requirements of the mechanical and plant engineering companies:
The special feature of the guideline and the use cases is the focus on user requirements, which was made possible by the intensive participation of the member companies (Fraunhofer IIS)
You can download the guideline here.
Use Cases as a practice-oriented instrument for 5G applications
An important task of many companies is the planning and evaluation of 5G application scenarios. This includes defining the starting point and the desired scenario as well as determining the requirements for which 5G functions can generate great value and high demand.
The following use cases have been developed by the 5G core working group, which consists of members of the VDMA, and Fraunhofer IIS. They do not offer a ready-made strategy for the implementation of 5G in companies. Rather, they are a practical aid and orientation guide for companies in the early stages of planning 5G applications. They present in detail the required parameters and a comparison between 5G and other wireless technologies. This exercise should be carried out by all companies before implementing a 5G application and should always be updated to reflect the latest available releases of 5G. You can access the use cases here.
Survey on the guide "5G in mechanical and plant engineering" and Use Cases
The VDMA intends to carry out further activities together with the 5G core working group and Fraunhofer IIS in Nuremberg to expand the know-how for industrial wireless applications and especially 5G and to identify new, worthwhile applications for mechanical and plant engineering.
We at VDMA attach great importance to a constructive exchange with our members, as their interests are the focus of our activities.
We would like to hear from you how you evaluate the now published guideline "5G in mechanical and plant engineering" and the described use cases. We are also interested in which applications and aspects described there are already relevant for your company today or will be of particular interest in the future.
