The core business of Industry 4.0 is to make information available from diverse sources and to link this information. Initially the origin of the information should be differentiated. This can be achieved by applying the automation pyramid or the RAMI model 4.0 as orientation: On the one hand this provides information, which has been generated on the field or control level. On the other hand it supplies information, which is managed centrally, e.g. in ERP systems. In this instance it is essential to observe that the information to be linked is not only necessarily available within a company, but has to be exchanged outside corporate boundaries. The added values and business models, which are discussed in the context of Industry 4.0, primarily stem from the fact that information is "collected" from different sources to the field level and is linked to centrally available information, to acquire new knowledge.
