  • Patent number: 10061874
    Abstract: A method for monitoring a process and/or production plant, which includes a plurality of components and which is planned using a plurality of engineering systems, includes a step of providing first result data pertaining to at least one portion of the plurality of components using a first of the plurality of engineering systems, and second result data pertaining to at least one portion of the plurality of components using a second of the plurality of engineering systems. The method also includes a step of extracting topology data, which describe an arrangement of the plurality of components within the process and/or automation plant, and operating data for the plurality of components from the first and second result data. The method further includes creating a model for the process and/or production plant by using the topology data and the operating data. Also disclosed is an apparatus for carrying out the method.
