SAP Plant Connectivity (PCo) is a framework, set of services and management tools that enables the exchange of data between a SAP system and the industry-specific standard data sources of different manufacturers, such as process control systems, control devices, plant historian systems, SPC systems, TCP Sockets, and SAP Manufacturing Products (SAP ME, SAP MII, SAP EWM, SAP ODA and so on). With this application companies can receive tags and events from the connected source systems in production either automatically or upon request and forward them to the connected SAP systems. Furthermore, using PCo, manufactures can execute, receive, and process OPC UA method calls and thereby also map complex coordination tasks in the programmable logic controllers (PLC) environment. The research is carried out with the support of the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.
