Rethink! Smart Manufacturing: How process optimization succeeds with digital twins - the example of ESG

From 2025, laws such as the Product Carbon Footprint and the Supply Chain Act will require companies to exchange data more efficiently. Werner Reuss and Dr. Kristian Schatz present a solution that uses digital twins based on the Asset Administration Shell (AAS) to manage sustainability data for production facilities and products.

Exclusive presentation with Werner Reuss from Intersystems and Dr. Kristian Schatz from M&M Software

Laws such as the Product Carbon Footprint, the Digital Product Passport and the Supply Chain Act are already affecting many companies today, and all others from 2025 at the latest. These EU directives mean that data from all areas of the company must be exchanged more frequently and more efficiently. In addition to meeting these legal requirements, the topic of sustainability reporting is also becoming increasingly important due to demand from customers and business partners.

At this year's Rethink! Smart Manufacturing in Berlin, Werner Reuß and Dr. Kristian Schatz will be presenting a promising solution that makes it possible to control production facilities and products on the basis of sustainability data. Production facilities and products can be mapped using digital twins based on the Asset Administration Shell (AAS). Their sustainability information can then be accessed, evaluated and shared across the board.
