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…
