    This publication describes a smart industry testbed for digital, connected and adaptive production machines and production chains. The testbed provides an architecture in which all data sources and tools are interrelated and share a common environment to research, develop, test and evaluate solutions in a synthetic environment. The testbed allows for real-time adaptability of machines and process chains to specific events (bottle necks, customer needs, machine break down etc.), while incorporating what-if analyses, creating intelligent products up to visualizing consequences of decisions. This can be used for the evaluation of alternative process chains for optimal lead time, manufacturing costs and quality. The testbed is not limited to a predefined use condition and copes with ever changing environments and users, and facilitates remote, inter-collaborative product development, support and maintenance through e.g AR/VR.
