Joint status report from NAMUR, ProcessNet, VDMA und ZVEI
The acronyms MTP and NOA have dominated the discussion for some years now, no matter when and where process automation specialists and automation technology providers come together. The Module Type Package (MTP) is considered indispensable for meeting the demand for flexible process engineering production facilities. NAMUR Open Architecture (NOA), on the other hand, finally allows operators to tap into "stranded data" and thus receive important information on the state of their plants. In addition, it is set to become an important tool on the road to Industrie 4.0. Both concepts have one thing in common: They make process industry fit for the future. And one more thing: Both are ready for use.
