Abstract
One of the major technical aspects of Industry 4.0 (I4.0) is the decentralized task and function distribution based on a service-oriented approach. This leads to new challenges by using the existing technologies and planning methods of I4.0 industrial plants. The validation of such dynamic serviceoriented architectures requires new validation methods to ensure the correct functionality of the I4.0 plant. The interactions of distributed functions and the integration of functions on several devices play an important role in planning, configuration, and validation of such plants. This work presents a new approach of a continuous model-based validation and testing method of I4.0 plant service-oriented architectures. The method allows to reuse existing functional tests of services and to adjust them with the help of the model-based information of a plant architecture model.
