Digital twin

The digital transformation as a success factor in the process industry

The opportunities offered by a successful digital transformation are tremendous, opening up the path toward crucial improvements throughout your plant lifecycle. A precondition is to integrate hardware and software controls in the production chain, making it possible to gather, process, and analyze data automatically. Our portfolio offers everything you need to efficiently record and intelligently leverage the huge quantity of data that processes generate. This is a basic prerequisite for creating a digital twin.    

Benefits throughout the entire plant lifecycle

Real added value thanks to the digital plant

The digital twin is the virtual representation of a real system. It lets you represent and optimize the entire plant lifecycle.
