On the way to autonomous production with the Digital Twin

Intelligent factories that control themselves, anticipate malfunctions and react flexibly to production changes are the goal of Industry 4.0. To make production more flexible, it is not enough to equip machines and plants with sensors. The signal streams from the shopfloor must also be interpreted correctly in terms of production logic. The prerequisite for this is the use of a Digital Twins, which connects the…

On the way to autonomous manufacturing

Virtual commissioning Equipping machines and plants with more and more sensors does not yet make a factory intelligent. The 'nerve tracts' need a digital 'brain' that knows the manufacturing logic and can interpret the meaning of the signals. Together they form the digital twin that enables the virtual commissioning of plants and their monitoring during operation. But what this Digital Twin is supposed to achieve…

Digital Transformation in the Production Process

How Digital Twins optimize production with Smart Services Shorter time-to-market, the pressure to be more environmentally friendly and growing individual customer demands are playing an increasingly important role in mechanical and plant engineering as well as in the manufacture of consumer goods. The digitization of production helps manufacturers and suppliers to master the growing complexity that these changes bring. In order to intelligently control the…

Digital Twin is about to rollout by Airbus

Clear view in assembly Production planning and control can be better synchronized by feeding the digital models of products and production lines with real-time data from the shopfloor. The Synced Factory Twin at Airbus demonstrates what this could look like in aircraft construction. But there is still a lot to be done before the real-time digital image of the factory can be used for aircraft…
