The concept of Software Defined Manufacturing (SDM) gives full adaptability of a production and its equipment purely through definition by software. The whole production software, which includes cloud services, machine control software, part programs and embedded software, is automatically generated depending on a description of the product to be manufactured. The concept of SDM gives the possibility to exchange all software parts of a production, depending on requirements given by the product to be manufactured. For software definition a formal virtual description of product functionalities, geometrical dimensions, material, quality and production processes has to be provided. This description allows to automatically define manufacturing processes and their sequences which are needed to manufacture the described product. Model-based systems engineering in production environments is seen as a key technology to achieve SDM installations in manufacturing. In this paper the vision of virtual representation of products and production equipment for SDM is presented.
