Industry 4.0 endeavors often integrate and analyze a multitude of data, such as data about machinery, production steps, and environmental conditions, in order to optimize manufacturing processes. Thereby, they aim to reveal information hidden in formerly isolated data silos via holistic analytics approaches. However, the integration of such data silos is often accompanied by challenges according legal regulations, organizational obstructions, and technical implementations, among others. Therefore, in this work we present a list of key challenges, which have to be commonly overcome in integration projects dealing with essential data from production processes. They can be used as a check list to address recurring challenges in future Industry 4.0 projects. Finally, we identify several plug-points in an abstract integration architecture, which have to be considered in concrete projects at hand to enforced the requirements.
