Blockchain technologies in the switch cabinet

The digital transformation of companies is expected to increase digital networking between companies to develop optimized, customized, hybrid business models. These cross-company business models require secure, reliable and comprehensible ways of logging and monitoring the contractually agreed exchange of information between the partners. The project will be carried out in cooperation between Furtwangen University, Offenburg University and associated partners. BISS:4.0 aims to guarantee secure, reliable and traceable data exchange between machine tools, operators and service providers. Research results will be implemented using two model cases and demonstrated with the "BISS:4.0 platform".
