The digital twin or the Asset Administration Shell (AAS), also known as the management shell, has the goal of an uninterrupted flow of information across the entire life cycle of machines and plants - from data from models in the early development phase, to machine data from the production phase, to asset management, maintenance and repair.
Early on, Lenze supported and promoted digitization in mechanical engineering and the concept of the management shell. Now the company is going one step further and extending its support for partners to simulation and virtual commissioning. In doing so, Lenze is closing some critical gaps. OEMs benefit from expanded digital engineering capabilities in the design, development and production of machines and plants.
