"Digital manufacturer information"

VDI Standard 2770

German companies procure more than five million items of equipment annually to setup, expand or maintain new production facilities. The operators receive information from manufacturers with the delivered components, e.g. for commissioning, maintenance and cleaning, which are stored in multiple IT systems and databases. For easy sharing and keeping information up to date, the information must be available in a digital and standardized format. However, this is often not the case. The result: Information is transferred manually between IT systems instead of using automated interfaces. This costs time and money.

The VDI standard 2770 "Digital manufacturer information" tackles this issue. It defines the properties, structure, scope, content and file formats of manufacturer information. This has advantages. Data from different maintenance systems can be transferred much easier. Additionally, maintenance tasks can be organised more efficiently. If technical information is available digitally (e.g., for a pump), the information can be provided to all production, maintenance and workshop employees via a cloud platform. This eliminates the hassle of searching for information from the manufacturer's documentation.
