AWS IoT SiteWise now allows customers to use the same asset model under different asset model hierarchies. With this feature, customers can simplify the asset modeling experience by reducing the number of models required to build a virtual representation of their industrial operations. Previously, for the same type of machine deployed in different production sites, users had to create one asset model for each production site model. Now, users can create one asset model and reuse it in all production site models.
Users will be able to reuse asset models when defining the hierarchy through the AWS IoT SiteWise console, the AWS SDK, or the AWS CLI.
As part of this launch, AWS has also increased the service quota for the number of asset hierarchy definitions per asset from 10 to 20 and the number of asset models per hierarchy tree from 20 to 50.
AWS IoT SiteWise is a managed service to collect, store, organize and monitor data from industrial equipment at scale.
