Short description of the tool:

The tool offers a wiki to support the selection process for shop floor data acquisition infrastructure. Therefore, it offers an outline of the most important steps to extract data from production processes and gives examples for solution providers. There is no digital data needed and no data will be stored. Direct links to selected products and companies will be given. The tool thus offers a support for setting up a shop floor data acquisition system.

Before you get started, take a look at the guideline and make yourself familiar with how to use the tool.
