Instead of doing physical commissioning exclusively, where you’re iterating and debugging with many delays, you can use virtually commission along the way to speed up production. As a matter of fact, you can even integrate these 1D simulations with the hardware, the PLC’s, and validate that everything works correctly before the physical commissioning starts.
Virtual Commissioning covers the use of simulation to plan, design, test, and install production systems
WHAT IS A DIGITAL TWIN FOR VIRTUAL COMMISSIONING?
There’s no doubt about it: today’s production systems are becoming incredibly complex. Machinery, cells, lines, and entire facilities leveraged new and innovative sensors, electronics and programmable logic controllers (PLC) to do some pretty amazing things. The future of the smart factory is now.
