Smart Manufacturing Reference Architecture (IVRA), released (First published in Japanese in December, 2016)

  IVI has independently developed the Smart Manufacturing Reference Architecture IVRA (Industrial Value Chain Reference Architecture) Ver. 1 . This is equivalent to reference architectures such as IIRA and RAMI 4.0 developed in Europe and the United States, and was devised based on Japanese manufacturing concepts.

  The entire manufacturing industry is viewed from the perspective of the supply chain, engineering chain, vertical hierarchy structure from the enterprise level to the equipment level, and there is an autonomous organization of smart manufacturing that has people inside as its constituent elements. It is a feature. We are also proposing an approach to building a smart manufacturing ecosystem.
