- Provision of technologies and methods for the operational phase of production plants (e.g. maintenance, asset management)
- Provision of the basics for all phases of a plant lifecycle (e.g. explosion protection, functional safety, security, EMC, mobile automation)
- Representation of special issues that are not in the focus of PCT but have a high technical and/or economic relevance (e.g. harzard warning systems)
Details of the issues addressed are contained in the information on individual working groups.
