"Automatic identification of physical objects"

IEC 61406 (predecessor specification DIN SPEC 91406)

For an efficient maintenance process, all components in a plant must be clearly identifiable. About 30 companies from the process industry have worked together to develop a global standard for this. The result is the so called IEC 61406.  This is a globally unique, machine-readable ID that is applied to a physical object - similar to a type plate or label.

This makes it easy to identify physical objects in a plant. In the future, mobile devices can identify the objects in the plant or along the supply chain and production employees can directly access relevant information such as maintenance plans or parts lists on site.
