Within the engineering of manufacturing systems an important change took place. The prior sequential and strongly disconnected engineering activities of the different stakeholders involved in this process became interlinked and strongly coupled leading to engineering networks. To properly work within such engineering networks lossless, consistent, and scalable data exchange structures and formats are essential for the success. Within this paper the applicability of the AutomationML by the different stakeholders of the engineering process is addressed. It is shown how this exchange format can be applied within one engineering network and which of the required engineering data are currently covered by the format.
