On-demand Session 6: Turning models and data into productivity by connecting Digital Twin with Factory automation

Estimated Watching Time: 95 minutes


Free Online Seminar Series for Industrial Machinery

In this session we take the digital twin to the factory floor. How do we connect the Digital Twin to automation? How can you commission a machine without impacting or stopping the production line? We will see how virtual commissioning is done by connecting the digital twin with automation code, to simulate transient behavior of multi-domain systems including hydraulics, pneumatics, electronics, thermal & mechanics of a machine and couple with the automation code (SIL) and real PLC (HIL). SACMI will come to present their project on how virtual commissioning was successfully applied. Next to this, we will also close the loop between the real machines and the digital twin. Model-Based System Testing allows combining real machine data with information from the digital twin. This provides many advantages, like for virtual sensing. Finally, we will show how a complete production plant can be optimized by using a Factory Digital Twin Model with a low code-developed application framework. Throughout the session we will share real project examples, inspiring you how Siemens technology can also benefit you.
