Commisioning using a virtual model

What it can do for your project

Write and test the machine automation software simultaneously with the design and construction of the machine?

Re-enact and solve unexpected behavior of a controller after delivery without leaving the office?

Sounds quite unspectacular at first – but when software controls physical hardware? Is it possible to commission and test the software without the hardware? Looking for a bug?

Here, the virtual hardware model is becoming more and more important. It enables extensive simulations long before the real machine exists. The knowledge gained can, for example, already be incorporated into the design of the machine. Could sensors have been forgotten?

An already existing machine may have to be modified at great expense during commissioning. This pushes up the costs. Every mistake detected earlier increases the efficiency of your project.

Our Offer

We provide virtual commissioning as an extra service. You decide yourself whether you want to benefit from it.

Benefits

  • The cost of time and travel is minimized. The Major part of the commissioning can be carried out in the home office.
  • The project duration is significantly shortened, because you can already test the software in your virtual hardware environment parallel to the design and installation.
  • After delivery to the customer, unexpected behavior can be reproduced without having to be on site and, if necessary, without having to take the plant partially out of production as well.
  • Special case retrofit: The time of production downtime can be shortened considerably. The production plant is available again a few weeks earlier. This is a not insignificant cost factor.

Downside

  • In total, more time is required due to the modeling of the digital twin.
  • After the hardware commissioning has been done, the digital twin may still need to be sharpened.
