WS Food for machines of the food industry
The WS Food domain covers all machines and equipment in the meat processing food industry and defines machine-specific data points as well as corresponding evaluation recommendations. This enables the standardized connection of a wide variety of machines, regardless of manufacturer, to higher-level IT systems.
On the initiative of the "Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V. (VDMA)", standardization was created in 2005 in cooperation with 16 partners from the mechanical engineering sector, food production and system houses on the basis of reference processes for the production of meat products.
