MTP webpages at AT NAMUR
NAMUR's website includes several webpages with useful information about MTP, including "Automaton modular plants" with links to an overview about MTP and a one-page flowchart. The website also has a "WG 1.12 Modules/Plug-and-Produce" page that details the organization's activities, goals and advantages of modularizing with MTP. It also includes a link to an abstract of NAMUR's NE 148 recommendation on "Automation requirements relating to modularization of process plants." They're at www.namur.net/en/work-areas-and-project-groups/wa-1-project-planning-and-construction/wg-112-modules/plug-and-produce.html. NAMUR also presented a 15-minute video, "Drivers for plug-and-play concepts" by Michael Krauss of NAMUR at ARC Industry Forum 2019.
