Logistic systems play a crucial role in organization and management of every large enterprise. One very important issue is a vertical communication between localized on factory floor level data sources and business application level logistic systems. OPC UA allows for creating flexible and scalable vertical communication interface. Many interconnection problems related with communication between control and business level of IT applications may be solved with object oriented and extensible OPC UA standard. Authors describe a case study of OPC UA interface for a given logistic system. The definition of logistic system and relevant OPC UA objects will be proposed. This work was supported by the European Union from the European Social Fund and was realized as part of “EkDan” Project in Institute of Informatics Silesian University of Technology.
