Data collection from distributed automated production systems is one of the main prerequisites to leverage information gain from data analysis in the context of Industrie 4.0, e.g., for the optimization of product quality. However, the realization of data collection architectures is associated with immense implementation efforts due to the heterogeneity of systems, protocols, and interfaces, as well as the multitude of involved disciplines in such projects. Therefore, this paper contributes with an approach for the model-driven generation of data collection architectures to significantly lower manual implementation efforts. Via model transformations, the corresponding source code is automatically generated from formalized models that can be created using a graphical domain-specific language. The automatically generated architecture features support for various established IIoT protocols. In a lab-scale evaluation and a unique generalized extrapolation study, the significant effort savings compared to manual programming could be quantified. In conclusion, the proposed approach can successfully mitigate the current scientific and industrial challenges to enable wide-scale access to industrial data. View Full-Text
