SPS 2021: ISG presents innovations of its simulation platform for digital twins (Press release)

Stuttgart, September 23, 2021 +++ ISG Industrielle Steuerungstechnik GmbH ( will present the latest enhancements of its simulation platform ISG-virtuos at SPS - Smart Production Solutions in Nuremberg (Nov. 23-25, 2021, Hall 6, Booth 340).

With the open software for digital twins, machine and plant manufacturers realize simulation models, especially for virtual commissioning. But also along the entire life cycle of a plant - from sales to digital engineering to the operating phase, for example for employee training and service cases - the solution allows to simulate a wide variety of scenarios. Trade show visitors will learn how ISG individually supports the implementation of simulation projects and will also receive information about the extensive training, project planning and modeling services that ISG offers for its software solutions.

How the integration of simulation models from the TwinStore, the online store for standardized component models for virtual commissioning can look in practice, will be demonstrated by means of a best practice example. Virtual 4D product catalogs from numerous manufacturers are directly available in the TwinStore. "This enables machine and plant builders to model their automation solutions even faster," explains Dr. Christian Scheifele, managing partner of ISG. "And at the same time, the virtual model accurately represents the real components along with their interfaces, parameters and behavioral characteristics."

Ways to automate testing of control software are also demonstrated. With ISG-dirigent, individual component and assembly models as well as complete machine and plant models are automatically tested with regard to a wide range of criteria. In this way, companies achieve a high level of robustness and reliability of their control software.

Furthermore, ISG presents the latest version of the ISG-kernel. The control kernel can now distribute the extended CNC tasks to different cores of a control platform (multicore) and thus scale the control system for all application requirements. In Nuremberg, visitors will gain interesting insights into various applications and actual engineering.
