Manufacturers faced complexities in fabricating and testing new ideas. Traditional commissioning methods do not have the ability to identify any potential collisions or errors in the control concept before construction of the machine which is often linked to additional expenses
Virtual Commissioning works by creating a virtual model of a machine or system, replicating its components and behaviours. Engineers then simulate and test the virtual model, exploring different scenarios, configurations, and control strategies. The virtual model is integrated with a virtual or real PLC or automation system to emulate real-time interactions.
By eliminating the need for physical prototypes, Virtual Commissioning reduces time-to-market, minimizes risks, and enhances overall efficiency and reliability.
