Semantic Data Structuring Whitepaper

This whitepaper by the Semantic Data Structuring Work Group, describes the challenges manufacturing enterprises of all sizes are facing today as they seek to compete in the world of IIoT and Industrie 4.0. The paper then goes on to feature a typical manufacturing use case from the automotive industry and a series of working hypotheses for how to address the problem of disparate data sets and sources. Finally, the paper presents a detailed architecture and digital twin approach for not only ingesting and storing data but also for contextualizing the data such that it can be used effectively across environments.
