In the first part of this paper a typical realisation of a production stand is presented along with a description of stages of its implementation, layers (fields) of realisation and their interconnections and dependencies. In the second part a digital factory concept is presented. The concept is used to support the transfer of knowledge during construction and maintenance of production stands by preparation of a model which includes components, roles and interfaces of a stand. The approach allows to easily and comfortably get access to resources related to specific layers, depending on demands and needs of the user. Remote access which is based on data in a cloud forms a system of services which are available from web browser level.
