OPC UA interface for a BPM suite to enable seamless process management

Udo Kannengiesser, Matthias Neubauer, Richard Heininger

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This demonstration presents an interface for the seamless integration of business processes and production processes. Specifically, the interface defines the data to be exchanged between the execution engine of the Metasonic Suite and the communication standard OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) that is widely used in industrial process automation. This allows business processes to trigger and react to changes in physical processes, thus increasing the scope and the real-world awareness of BPM. The BPM conference participants will learn how to model and execute such real-world aware business processes based on examples from an ongoing EU research project. The target audience of this demo includes BPM researchers interested in approaches to seamless process management in production enterprises.
