Asset Administration Shell (AAS): Interoperable Digital Twins for Industry 4.0


The Asset Administration Shell (AAS) is a core element of Industry 4.0 by enabling a standardised digital representation of an asset (aka digital twin) giving uniform access to information and behaviour of the asset, and thereby facilitating interoperability among applications within one organisation and across enterprise boundaries.

Recently, AAS started to get more attention due to its endorsement and adoption by several key industrial stakeholders and also the availability of supporting technologies to facilitate its use / integration. The AAS specification was developed in the German Plattform Industrie 4.0 initiative and is now becoming a standard - IEC 63278 developed inside IEC TC 65 / WG 24.

This 90-minutes webinar has been held on June 25th, 2021 at 15:00 - 16:30 CET and aimed to present the fundamentals and new developments of the AAS concept while demonstrating how to use AAS, showcasing enabling technologies to deploy AAS and presenting projects/initiatives taking advantage of AAS for smart manufacturing use cases.

The webinar agenda is as follows:

  • Asset Administration Shell Fundamentals & AASX demo, Andreas Orzelski

  • NOVAAS: AAS Open-Source Execution Environment (H2020 PROPHESY FoF-09 project), Giovanni Di Orio

  • Connected Assets iNteroperability framework Via AAS (EIT Manufacturing CanVAAS project), Saadia Dhouib

  • AAS & IDS (IDS-I initiative & H2020 CogniTwin & H2020 Eur3ka), Ljiljana Stojanovic

  • Q&A (Moderator: Pedro Maló, NOVA / UNPARALLEL)
