At federal secondary colleges of engineering (HTL) in Austria technical education is taught at a quite high level of ISCED 5. Despite mechanical engineering, design with industrial standard 3D programs being state of the art in industry and education, technologies using Internet of Things (IoT) and Augmented Reality (AR) have been established in the last year. This publication describes the introduction of a multistage production and assembly line on an Industry 4.0 level using the IoT platform ThingWorx. For the plant an AR model has been established where the digital twin of all products can be observed in real time.
