This makes MIP the first next-generation representative for production IT providing a flexible basis for applications close to production. Thanks to its open semantic information model, MIP facilitates the development of applications, since important basic functions and a common data structure already exist. This enables application developers to focus on the business logic.
Machine manufacturers also have the opportunity to enrich their own products with additional application benefits. With the help of MIP, system integrators can combine their own applications with standard applications available on the market and thus offer solutions tailored to their needs.
Manufacturing companies with sufficient IT resources of their own can decide on the basis of MIP which apps to purchase and which to develop themselves. The common information model ensures that all applications work together seamlessly.
