The basic structure of a plant is fixed but everything inside it can be movable blocks or modules like Lego® bricks. Depending on what needs to be produced, modules can be added, moved, removed and turned on or off depending on the demand. All of this without having to reprogram the processes or even install drivers. The required data and information are already available to the system when the module is connected. This principal is called the Module Type Package (MTP) by NAMUR NE 148 or more simply “Plug & Produce”. This presentation will introduce MTP and automation solutions that Siemens has developed for this new concept, and where they are being used today.
