After SAP, IBM has posted an interesting article about Industry 4.0: Learning by Playing with a Model (Industrie 4.0: Spielend am Modell lernen, in German) by René Auberger and Lisa Unkelhäußer.
According to the article, "Thus the factory simulation is not only a nice demonstrator for trainees or internal training, but belongs rather in the entrance of each production plant."
This is one more initiative on the promising convergence of fischertechnik and IIoT.
I've already developed IIoT solutions for the RoboTX and Robotics TXT, with two series of extensions. All provide dashboards for remote command and control of the fischertechnik models.
