Simulation with the technology leader

Constantly developed since 2005, ISG-virtuos is now firmly established with leading companies.

With ISG-virtuos, you cover the creation and holistic use of simulation models from sales through digital engineering to the operating phase - and all this with just one simulation model. In addition to model-in-the-loop (MiL) and software-in-the-loop (SiL) simulation, we also enable hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) simulation, in which the behavior of the components, machines and systems used, including the fieldbuses used, is simulated in deterministic control real time.

Simulation ensures extensive testing and optimization of your PLC programming of complex plants or robot systems, e.g. during virtual commissioning, saving you important time and resources in your projects. 

Virtual commissioning to the point

  • Decoupling of software development from upstream and downstream processes (mechanics, electrics, installation, media supply, transport)
  • Early error detection and optimization before the real plant is manufactured
  • Shifting of programming work from the construction site to the office
  • Reduction of commissioning crashes due to the model-based approach
  • Stable production processes and high technical availability of the machines due to sophisticated automation software
  • Enables complex, time-critical projects, especially when rebuilding existing lines or plants (enabler for reduction of non-constructability)
  • Reduced project management risks through better progress tracking
  • Lower travel costs and more family-friendly work due to shortened on-site commissioning time
  • Increase of the quality of the delivered plant
  • Training of process partners in plant functionality

Getting started with virtual commissioning

From initial contact to technology partner

ISG is your partner for the introduction of simulation technologies in your company. Through years of experience in consulting and implementation of various customer projects, we have refined our approach to the introduction of simulation software to new customers. In order to move from the pilot phase to the productive phase as quickly as possible and still with reliable results, we have developed the so-called realization workshop. Here, you not only build up the corresponding simulation know-how, but also implement your first own plant and can thus get extensively involved in the topic of digital twin and virtual commissioning.

Basic Functions

ISG-virtuos is composed of basic functions, option and technology packages and can thus be extended at will from simple machine applications to complex interlinked plants within the scope of a factory simulation and their virtual commissioning.

Here you will find our ISG-virtuos basic functions explained in more detail.

Option Packages

The ISG-virtuos option packages offer additional special applications besides the basic functions. With these packages, on the one hand, the simulation scope can be increased to be able to perform even more extensive simulations, but also the real-time material flow physics library (MFphys) can be extended by additional packages, such as the Mover and AGV and Tool Handling libraries.

Technology Packages

The optional ISG-virtuos technology packages extend the real-time simulation with additional features to increase performance, such as the real-time multisolver package for simulation on multicore systems and the automated creation of simulation models through corresponding ECF/ISGMD and JavaScript interfaces.

Our Users

DR. WILLIAM TEKOUO, D-LAB MANAGER, BMW GROUP

"To ensure an efficient start-up of our production lines [...] we rely, among other things, on the VIBN of complex plants and production processes. In the operating phase, it offers the possibility to efficiently integrate software-intensive changes in a few days without subsequent loss of production. Crucial for this is both the use of a flexible simulation tool with open interfaces and an extensive component library to reduce modeling time."

LUDWIG ALBRECHT, MANAGER DIGITAL FACTORY, HOMAG AG

"We are convinced by the concept of simulation-based engineering. This allows processes to be parallelized as early as the development phase. The quality of the control programs, design and configuration data can also be tested in advance on the virtual prototype. Thanks to the modular design principle with reusable modules and the numerous test functions, we have been able to significantly simplify and accelerate many of our processes, especially the commissioning of our plants.
