Subject of Research. We propose educational platform created on the basis of the automated production in the Industry 4.0 concept. The interaction of automated production area components is described. The paper describes the process of new components integration into a standardized architectural model. Method. While creating an automated production area, a modern service-oriented architectural model is used, which describes the production process both from the life cycle side and at different levels of the hierarchy, as well as the interaction levels of the components of this production. The basis of the production is a single-board Raspberry Pi computer with a server being started on it for data exchange between the database and the engraving site. Main Results. A model was designed for the next stage of production supplementing by a set of 3D printers. Interfaces between the components of the automated production were also identified. Practical Relevance. The created production area gives the possibility to get acquainted with the basis of the Industry 4.0 concept. The developed model will be implemented for training students to work with modern industrial automation. In addition, the architecture of the created production area provides an opportunity to develop new automation programs, introduce additional production components, and study their interaction with existing ones
