Industrial-process measurement, control and automation - Digital factory framework - Part 3: Application of Digital Factory for life cycle management of production systems (IEC 62832-3:2020)

This part of IEC 62832 specifies rules of the Digital Factory framework for managing information
of a production system throughout its life cycle. It also defines how information will be added,
deleted or changed in the DigitalFactory by the various activities during the life cycle of the
production system.
These rules include:
– rules to represent a production system with a DigitalFactory;
– rules to represent a PS asset or a role with a DFasset;
– rules to represent a relationship between PS assets with a DFassetLink;
– rules to represent a relationship between roles with a DFassetLink;
– rules to represent the hierarchy of PS assets in a production system;
– rules to check the compatibility between associated PS assets.
NOTE 1 "PS" and "DF" are used in IEC 62832 (all parts) as qualifiers, they are part of the concept names. See
IEC 62832-1:2020, Clause 3.
NOTE 2 Common rules are the base for the exchange of data between and within enterprises, between engineering
tools, and between departments.

FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTRODUCTION
IEC 62832 provides a framework used for establishing and maintaining the digital

representations of production systems, including the representation of the elements of the

production systems and of the relationships between these elements. The framework is

intended also to support the exchange of information about these elements.

The framework aims at reducing the interoperability barriers for exchange of information for the

various activities related to production systems. The main advantages of this method are that

all information related to a production system is described in a standardized manner, and it can

be used and modified through its entire life cycle. The method defined in IEC 62832 is kept as

generic as possible in order to enable its use in several industrial sectors.

Manufacturers and suppliers provide information about available PS asset types by using

electronic catalogues, which are based on commonly agreed data definitions (for instance

1 2
IEC CDD, eCl@ss and eOTD ). Such data definitions can be provided by standard

organizations (like IEC CDD), by consortia (like eCl@ss e.V.) or by companies (like eOTD

dictionaries).

The DF Framework provides a standardized approach, by defining the concepts of Libraries

(i.e. SupplierLibraries and DFlibraries) and by defining basic rules for such Libraries.

The intention of this document is to provide a common base for implementation of the DF

framework using different technologies (for example different engineering data formats).

Proposals for such implementations are provided in Annex A.

IEC 62832-1 describes the general principles of the DF reference model together with its most

important model elements. IEC 62832-2 specifies detailed requirements for model elements of

the DF reference model. This part of IEC 62832 specifies the rules for using the DF framework.

1 Scope

This part of IEC 62832 specifies rules of the Digital Factory framework for managing information

of a production system throughout its life cycle. It also defines how information will be added,

deleted or changed in the DigitalFactory by the various activities during the life cycle of the

production system.
These rules include:
– rules to represent a production system with a DigitalFactory;
– rules to represent a PS asset or a role with a DFasset;
– rules to represent a relationship between PS assets with a DFassetLink;
– rules to represent a relationship between roles with a DFassetLink;
– rules to represent the hierarchy of PS assets in a production system;
– rules to check the compatibility between associated PS assets.

NOTE 1 "PS" and "DF" are used in IEC 62832 (all parts) as qualifiers, they are part of the concept names. See

IEC 62832-1:2020, Clause 3.

3.2 Conventions

While IEC 62832-1 is using general names for describing the concepts, IEC 62832-2 and

IEC 62832-3 define more formal requirements. In order to clearly identify the names of the

model elements, IEC 62832-2 and IEC 62832-3 use ‘PascalCase’ for names.
A help for matching the names is provided in IEC 62832-2:2020, Table B.1.
4 General rules
4.1 Information about PS asset types

The description of a PS asset type is provided in a Library by means of a DFassetClass, which

is derived from a DFassetClassDefinition in a ConceptDictionary. This relationship is

documented by the "DFassetClassDefinition" reference in the header of the DFassetClass. The

product characteristics are described by DataElements and CDELs, which commonly also are

based on definitions from the same ConceptDictionary as the DFassetClassDefinition. If the

used dictionary does not support description of all relevant product characteristics, additional

DataElements and CDELs may be provided based on definitions from a different

ConceptDictionary (e.g. from a different consortium or from the vendor) (see for example

Figure 1).

4.2 Representation of a production system

A DigitalFactory shall be used to represent a production system (see Figure 2). The production

system represented by a DigitalFactory may be a planned production system or an existing

production system.

The granularity of the digital representation of the production system may vary depending on

the intended purpose.

EXAMPLE For initial planning purposes, the DigitalFactory can contain DFassets representing the main components

of the production systems, while for operation purposes the DFassets can describe sub-structures down to single

devices or depending on criticality minor mechanical components (such as bolts and screws).

During the life cycle of the production system, the information in the DigitalFactory should

change according to the changing production system.
Figure 2 – Representation of a production system
4.3 Rules for CDELs and DataElements
4.3.1 General

A DFasset shall be used to represent a specific PS asset, a specific role or a specific PS asset

with an assigned role. The particular aspects or features of a PS asset or role should be

described with CDELs. Each CDEL collects all DataElements describing a specific feature (for

example an interface, a part, an aspect) of the PS asset.

A DataElement shall contain the actual information describing a characteristic of a PS asset or

of a role. DataElements shall be created based on DETs and CDELs shall be created based on

CDELdefinitions.
---------------------- Page: 15 ----------------------
SIST EN IEC 62832-3:2021
– 10 – IEC 62832-3:2020  IEC 2020
A CDEL may contain at the same time DataElements with defined DataValues and

DataElements with undefined DataValues. The method to leave DataValues of DataElements

undefined shall be specified for each Library as well as for each DigitalFactory.

EXAMPLE Examples for methods to assign an undefined DataValue are: to keep the value empty; to define an

invalid value; or to eliminate the value space from the DataElement.
4.3.2 Constant and variable DataElements

Depending on the intended use of a specific DataElement, it can be necessary to provide

additional information together with the DataValue of the DataEl
