Modular Automation for future process plants

Modularization of process automation systems will help reduce time to market, increase automation efficiency and improve production flexibility.

Share this page

Modular Automation is the future for flexible process plant production and a key element for industrial IoT and Industry 4.0.

Moving from monolithic automation systems for complete production plant to modular-enabled, more flexible and service oriented plug and produce automation solutions will allow faster process implementation, ability to scale the capacity by numbering up and down the production and improved capability and speed of product changes.

Modular Automation is the right solution for process industries that are facing market requirements such as more customized products, shorter delivery times and smaller batch series down to batch size 1. 

ABB has launched world’s first commercial modular enabled process automation solution. This is the first solution to combine an orchestration layer and a module layer integrated with the technology of module type packages (MTPs).

Interested in Modular Automation with plug and produce capabilities?

ABB has implemented world's first commercial solution for cost-effective modularization at one of the major life science companies, Bayer AG.

“In life sciences the production is now more focused on the patient and the given problem with personalized medicine. The products are no longer a commodity and we move towards very small batches. With the technology and early adoption of the idea of modular automation ABB is the right partner in this area.” Dr. Torsten Knohl, Senior Project Manager, Bayer AG
