5GTANGO proposes the following approach to Smart Manufacturing, where a production service provider offers “blanking” as an on-demand activity. A customer does in-house molding and assembles the outputs in-house as well. For best efficiency and best products, the blanking process needs to exchange data with the molding and assembly process. The described scenario will be finally validated in a real industrial scenario provided by industrial partner Weidmüller.

In consequence, functionality is downloaded from the customer into the blanking machine similar to deploying a virtual network function. If a Provider works for multiple customers concurrently, the traffic between these two customers and their leased machines must be isolated from each other.
