Hi eveeryone ..

In process simualte we are doing simulation. but if we doing virtual commissioning also going to give same simulation. why we want to do virtual commissioning? what are the advantages of virtual commisssioning more than simulation...

if anyone knows help me out...

Hi,

 

In Process Simulate you can create the exact representation of the manufacturing line which forms the digital representation of the equipment. This is DIGITAL TWIN, which will enable you to understand and practice the concepts of Line Simulation (Cyclic Event Evaluation), Material Flow, Logic Blocks and Smart Devices.

 

In Virtual Commissioning you will be using same Digital Twin with the real PLC/HMI and actual logic/code which will be used in the line and validate the same in the virtual environment, so that we have all the requirements elements in the shop floor be set in a mature and validated state, hence reduce time in commissioning or maintenance and less downtime of the shop floor.

 

Advantages are 

  1. Virtual Commissioning is about utilizing the simulation environment.
  2. It helps to plan and validate the automation aspects through the entire workflow, starting from process definition and ending with virtual commissioning.
  3. This helps to validate the complete manufacturing line in the virtual environment before making the physical prototype and automation line.
