Cyberphysical production systems are an important part of today’s manufacturing process. The ever-growing need of highly optimized,
i.e. at the same time flexible and efficient systems, requires the use of not only appropriate machines, but as well a
communication framework and data model that is manufacturer independent and scalable. This paper proposes a communicationframework
based on OPC UA that employs an agent-based architecture. The proposed system has been implemented and tested in
the Digital Factory of the UAS Technikum Wien. It shows promising behavior within distributed manufacturing systems.
