ISG Industrielle Steuerungstechnik GmbH, Stuttgart, explains the advantages of using existing digital twins of the assemblies used in the plant for the virtual commissioning of plants. These assemblies are available on an open platform, such as TwinStore, in the form of a modular system.
Customers are increasingly demanding machines and plants tailored to their needs. This means that every machine or plant is unique. In this context, software development is increasingly becoming an integral part of the commissioning phase, since the increasing complexity of the plants can only be mastered by programming the functionalities on the real plant.
