Reference architecture model (RAMI)

Automation used to be characterised by a hardware-oriented structure (automation pyramid). Today, this structure is outdated, as automation is no longer only the wiring of hardware devices, but it is also about the connection between clouds and data. In addition, there are not only production data available, it is also possible to access the data of the controller from the outside. Therefore, thereference architecture model (RAMI) was created as a modernised automation pyramid#br##
TheZVEI has developed the ideas and the concepts of the automation industry together with VDI/VDE-GMA, DKE and the partners on the associations platform Industrie 4.0 Bitkom and VDMA. For the first time the model combines the relevant elements of Industrie 4.0 in a three-dimensional layer model. With this framework, Industrie 4.0 can be systematically classified and developed further. The model also specified standards for Industrie 4.0. Such a standardisation is necessary as different companies have to communicate with each other as part of Industrie 4.0.
