PROFIBUS supports PROLIST
The basis for this is the electronic data exchange between manufacturers and users or between different systems within companies (both manufacturers and users), such as ERP and CAE. This will prevent typographical errors caused by repeated entry of the same data and will reduce the quantity of paper documents. The PROLIST feature lists will enable optimum business processes, reduced process costs, and improved process quality. The created feature lists will also be carried over into the international standardization activities of IEC.
The collaboration with PROLIST will result in a standardized mapping of PROFIBUS interface properties into PROLIST feature lists. As a result, all companies that produce or use PROFIBUS products can benefit from electronic data exchange throughout their business processes.
