In this brochure we answer the question “What is eCl@ss?” and offer five compelling reasons why you should use the standard. We introduce the various applications in procurement, production, process optimization and controlling and explain what benefits the eCl@ss standard brings to digital transformation and industry 4.0.

Because the eCl@ss standard can accommodate a vast number of technical properties, it marks an ideal first step in targeting digital twins. This brochure is intended to offer guidance in explaining how using eCl@ss can foster smart manufacturing.
Through an ad hoc working group at the German Electrical and Electric Manufacturers’ Association (ZVEI), various drive technology manufacturers, representatives from the mechanical engineering branch, and classification and standardization experts have joined forces with academic research to advance the realization of drive 4.0.
An informational brochure published by the ZVEI outlines the group's initial findings and explains the use of electric drive technology as industry 4.0 components.
