In future manufacturing, several tasks across all participants in the value chain will certainly be enhanced by data-driven methods. As data can be diverse, various application fields are conceivable. In our whitepaper we present four central application fields from the production level where serious to even disruptive changes can be expected. We also introduce new arising business models and show current research trends. But how can big data be handled in manufacturing and what use-cases result? Another challenge for future industrial companies is the accomplishment of appropriate IT-infrastructure, especially at the operational level of the production network. Central questions about IT-infrastructure and networking are discussed and assessed from the PTW point of view.
