To optimise the development of automated solutions, we propose to design and build the products starting from a digital twin.
The digital twin is a 3D representation of a piece of equipment or an overall process, which evolves at the same time as its real version.
It is animated with a real PLC program or with data generated by AI tools for viewing predicted scenarios.
The digital twin makes it possible to:
- Design in collaborative mode (mechanical + automation)
- Validate the design with the CAD of the product and the real automation programme
- Put into production faster, by optimizing the setup times which can be done partly on the digital twin
- Provide a tool for the entire lifetime of the product (maintenance, validation of new sub-assemblies, validation of new productions, etc.)
