Welcome to the Technical Committee 5.3 on Integration and Interoperability of Enterprise Systems!

Welcome Message from the Chair

Welcome to the collaborative space of the IFAC Technical Committee "Integration and Interoperability of Enterprise Systems". TC 5.3 fosters research in enterprise integration, enterprise interoperability, enterprise architectures, enterprise engineering methods, enterprise modelling. TC 5.3 also researches the use of technologies (Cyber Physical Systems - CPS, Industrial Internet of Things - IoT, Co-Bots, HMI) in the (manufacturing and service engineering) enterprise to support interoperability ranging from human factor in production over Product Livecycle Management (PLM) systems to virtual enterprise networks. It aims at identifying theoretically sound and practically viable techniques for the Smart, Sensing and Sustainable Enterprise and the technological, semantic, organisational interoperability of enterprises and their applications (like ERP, MES, SCM, CRM, APS).

If you are a researcher, this is the place to meet other scientists and to collaborate in joint research.

If you are from industry, this is the place where you can share your needs and pragmatic solutions and meet researchers who will work in applying theoretical results to practical use cases.
