With high speed to the digital twin
In many companies today, the engineering process still follows a classic workflow. With regard to the ever advancing "digital engineering" as well as the associated workflow and data structure optimization, a rethinking must take place in the companies in order to continue to be successful on the market.
"Virtual commissioning has become a success factor for us"
In this interview with Jörg Thomas - the technical manager of Klotz GmbH - you will learn how the use of the simulation software fe.screen-sim has positively influenced the workflow, why 90% of the company's plants are tested in advance by a digital twin and where the digital trends in engineering lie - which Klotz has already integrated into its processes.
Digital twins as a success factor in mechanical and plant engineering
Many companies from a wide range of industries are now faced with the decision to establish virtual commissioning and an associated software solution in their workflow. Inevitably, they are faced with the question of whether this project will bring the success and benefits they expect.
fe.screen-sim: Reaching the goal together - With multi-user capability to efficient virtual commissioning
Multi-user capability – by which is meant the simultaneous work of several users on a simulation – has become a "game changer" in the creation of digital twins in terms of efficient working methods.
fe.screen-sim: The three pillars of digital twins
The simulation solution fe.screen-sim differs in many essential points from other tools that are used to create plant models and the associated virtual commissioning.
fe.screen-sim: Effective use of existing data sources to create digital twins
The increasingly complex engineering process in companies entails, among other things, a large and constantly growing number of software solutions.
fe.screen-sim: Virtual commissioning: efficiency increase and process optimization through direct data import
Especially in times of increasingly complex processes and short project lead times, many companies have recognized the advantages of virtual commissioning in terms of the associated time and cost savings.
fe.screen-sim: Changing the engineering process through virtual commissioning
With the use of a solution for the creation of a digital twin, the workflow in the engineering process will change from a sequentially characterised workflow to parallel processing and will become established in companies in the future.
fe.screen-sim: First model, then realise
Our head of sales of fe.screen, Werner Pospiech, provides an interesting insight into the world of virtual commissioning in the special chapter "Factory Planning and Commissioning" of the trade journal "IT&Production".
fe.screen-sim: Current whitepaper as a reading tip
„Virtual commissioning: methods, approach, benefits". Read our latest whitepaper and get more in-depth information on the topic of plant simulation and how to implement it.
fe.screen-sim: Bidirectional data exchange with "Process Simulate
An essential prerequisite for achieving data consistency in model creation is the flexible use of existing data sources and their data structures.
fe.screen-sim: Challenges faced when introducing virtual commissioning
The introduction of a VC solution in a company is connected with a number of challenges. Knowing these challenges and the development of own strategies contribute to the success of the first project.
46 Good reasons for plant simulation with fe.screen-sim
There are many reasons for using a simulation solution for digital plant twins.
Easy creation of simulation models from CAD and new features in fe.screen-sim V4
CAD data of plants are available in the form of 2D or 3D data. In essence, however, no thought has ever been given during design to being able to make this data available to other systems, such as a simulation environment. So how can simulation models of plants be created easily and quickly?
Virtual commissioning closer to reality than ever: New version 4 of fe.screen-sim available
The 3D simulation software for increased efficiency, plannability and risk minimization during the commissioning of machines and systems in the areas of materials handling, logistics, mechanical engineering and robotics makes a quantum leap with Version 4.0 - both in terms of functionality and in terms of appearance and fidelity to reality.
fe.screen-sim: Driving digitalization through plant simulation and virtual commissioning
Conventional commissioning of complex plants and machines can cause considerable cost and time expenditure. Especially when they do not run as planned. With "virtual commissioning", a so-called "digital twin" of the plant is created by importing the design data before the real assembly and commissioning.
fe.screen-analytics: Fundable energy management system
The German Federal Office of Economics and Export Control (BAFA) subsidizes the initial certification of an energy management system according to ISO 50001 and the associated investment costs.
Driving digitalization through plant simulation and virtual commissioning
The condition monitoring solution fe.screen-analytics receives new functions for the analysis of production losses. This enables detailed downtime evaluations that make deviations in production more visible.
Don't be afraid of digitization. These are the five challenges in the Industry 4.0 era
The digitization of production offers manufacturing companies great potential for improvement. At the moment, many still shy away from actively driving their digitization process forward. Simply digitizing what already exists is not very effective. Instead, it is important to think about future challenges in advance of a project in order to derive the right steps for a successful project.
fe.screen-mes: The basis is crucial: How to make a successful MES selection
Challenges in implementing digitization projects in the manufacturing industry. There is a consensus among experts that, at least in many sectors such as the manufacturing industry, no company will be able to avoid digitization. Rather, they will be forced to face up to the issue in order to remain competitive.
