White paper on the
Asset Administration Shell

In order to profitably utilize the Asset Administration Shell (AAS), solutions are required that enable seamless integration into existing system landscapes. In industry, these assets are often very diverse. They also need to be captured from multiple sources such as sensors, production machines, ERP systems and other digital systems, aggregated and transferred to the AAS format.

This white paper presents a system architecture for the step-by-step integration of AAS principles into existing system environments. It presents an approach for adapting the existing infrastructure and shows how existing systems can be harmonized with the AAS methodology.
