Using MindSphere™ to collect production data of a OEM’s floor to identify production blocks on CNC lines. Simulation confirmed robot handling system was a problem. Then used Plant Simulation to solve the process/blocking.
In regards to digital twins, why does the person who is perfecting the digital twin need to be in the facility? With the proper data being feed to the cloud through a platform such as Siemens MindSphere, the digital twin can be perfected remotely.
In addition, instead of sending an overabundance of data to the already strained manufacturing engineers tied to the manufacturing lines, do the data analysis remotely, summarize the data highlights and report the findings to the manufacturing engineer….
Legacy Equipment: Capturing hidden data treasures from the manufacturing floor
Hidden within older, legacy production equipment and systems are the data that power predictive maintenance. By capturing such data from legacy systems and connecting it to an IoT-based predictive maintenance solution, manufacturers will enable early detection of asset defects and other conditions that can lead to faults. …
The difference between a simulation and a digital twin
When powered by an IoT platform, a model becomes an integrated, closed-loop digital twin that, once fully deployed and connected via the digital thread, is a business simulation tool that can drive strategy at every stage of the business. …
