Intelligent technical systems are complex products that are based on interaction between information technology and engineering. Software components are integrated into machinery and equipment to carry out control, regulation and data processing tasks. They give artificial intelligence to technical systems and make life easier. Such systems open up new prospects for businesses, and form the basis for a number of innovations that are often also collectively referred to as Internet of Things or in the case of industrial production as Industry 4.0. An increasing number of functions and greater networking between products and production systems offer many benefits for users, but at the same time pose huge challenges for development of the products and the according business model as well. In this talk not only this perspective will be pointed out, but also various recommendations will bepresented, based on industrial case studies from different branches especially consumer goods, automotive and mechanical and plant engineering.
