Especially in the context of Artifcial Intelligence (AI) applications and increasing Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) requirements, the use of data in production is gaining in importance. Applications in the feld of process or condition monitoring use, for example, machine component parameters such as motor currents, travel speeds and position information. However, as the data is usually only accessible in the machine control systems in non-standard structures and semantics, while having a large number of potential variables, the identifcation and use of these parameters and data sources represents a signifcant challenge. This paper therefore presents an approach to automatically identify and assign machine parameters on the basis of time series data. For the identifcation, feature- and deep learning-based classifcation approaches are used and compared. Classifcation results show a general usability of the approaches for the identifcation of machine parameters.
