White Paper

Plan your factory installation with virtual commissioning tools before building the machine

Reading time: 4 minutes

Machines are often large and heavy and difficult to ship or have to be assembled on location. This turns installation and commissioning into a highly complex, time-consuming process. And when an error is found, you might end up with delays and penalty payments.

Download the latest whitepaper highlight produced by CIMdata to learn how to integrate virtual commissioning and virtual plant simulation into your design and manufacturing processes for effective early product validation.

Virtual Commissioning Technology Supports Validation and Verification

Today’s industrial machinery market craves for innovative solutions that allow machine engineering companies like yours, to cope with all the challenges you are facing, e.g. customization, digitalization, global competition, software integration, machine learning and connectivity (IoT) to name a few.

The innovative solution is virtual commissioning. It uses product models, simulations, and physical components to verify how a machine will operate, and how it will be controlled before the physical machine is built, allowing for reduced shop floor commissioning time thanks to early validation and verification.

A critical part of Advanced Machine Engineering (AME) is virtual commissioning software validation

Siemens Advanced Machine Engineering Solution provides the ability for machine builders to validate virtual commissioning software code for programmable logic controllers (PLCs), human-machine interfaces (HMI) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment, an integral part of the modular product development strategy. You can virtually test and tweak every minor detail or major change to machines you are developing, or to operative machines, with the help of their digital twins.
