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....
