The digital transformation based on internet technologies comprises huge potentials but also challenges for the production industry. Even though some design characteristics are generally accepted for the digitized integration of machines, applications and surrounding components the inherent complexity and variety of interaction protocols, data formats and interdependencies of existing deployments in so called brownfield environments hampers the data-driven manufacturing of the future. 
Implementation of a Six-Layer Smart Factory Architecture with Special Focus on Transdisciplinary Engineering Education
A six-layer architecture, from digitization to an interactive project management tool, was designed and implemented in the practical workflow at the academic institution, taking the complexity of thermo-mechanical processing in the metal processing field into account.
Data science on industrial data - Today's challenges in brown field applications
The paper is a review of literature found to cover challenges for cyber-physical production systems (CPPS) in brownfield applications, and a major focus in this paper is on data collection, which tends be more cumbersome than most people might expect.
The conclusion of this study is that the representation supports and facilitates the collaboration and communication across disciplines, bridging gaps and generating new shared knowledge.
