Using digital engineering, you can achieve higher roll-out quality for automation and drive solution software, and identify design and sequence errors at an early stage. This can significantly shorten the project’s duration. You can also extend your virtual plant into logistics and simulate material flows and also adapt the system software to the actual plant layout and work processes. All this makes it easier to commission robots and conveyor equipment and to test alternative options for solutions.
Project duration can be cut by an average of 5 percent and commissioning time by 50 to 80 percent. When designing machines being built for the first time, digitalization reduces processing time by four to six weeks. Future expansions or modifications can be planned and tested during ongoing operation.
