Module Type Package (MTP) –
The Way to a Modular System
The MTP Solution
With the Module Type Package (MTP), properties of process modules are functionally described – regardless of manufacturer and technology. The self-contained modules, which can come from different manufacturers, are easily reused and interconnected into complex overall systems with little effort. Functionalities encapsulated within the modules reduce dependencies among each other, ensuring largely interference-free behaviors.
Simple integration and exchangeability of system modules
Greater flexibility and speed through reusable, standardized modules

What is MTP and What Can It Do?
An MTP includes the following information:
This description file can be read in and processed by higher-level systems, such as visualization or process control systems, called “Process Orchestration Layer” (POL) in the following. Given is basic intention and functionality, MTP can be accurately compared to a printer driver. The driver, too, has the goal of connecting subsystems − in this case, a printer – to a central computer, regardless of manufacturer. Connect, switch on – print. Or, in the jargon of factory automation and process technology, “Plug and Produce.”

In the chemical and pharmaceuticals industries, modular production technology design clears the way to quick production plant changeover, to adapt capacity to predominating sales conditions and to bring new developments to market more quickly.
Marine & Offshore
Nowadays, bigger and bigger ships are built in less and less time. Modern container leviathans and cruise ships rely on increasingly complex technologies. MTP opens the way to seamlessly and quickly link together machine and system components, without bringing time-consuming discussions over interfaces in the ship automation system.
The manufacturing industry is facing new demands and challenges: simultaneous cost reduction and performance improvement, Industry 4.0 and more flexible production. In these times of transformation, WAGO is your expert guide, supporting you with innovative solutions and reliable products – in all areas of production.

Modular systems are becoming increasingly common in manufacturing and process engineering. Fluctuating quantities and highly specialized products require efficient production in small quantities. Modular systems are also used in other industries (e.g., shipbuilding) where simple integration into higher-level systems is the key to success.
