The digital transformation as a success factor in the process industryThe 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.
The digital twin in engineering
Right from the engineering stage, all the disciplines involved in a plant project can generate a shared data model – the digital twin, saving valuable time and expenses and at the same time increasing engineering quality. The digital twin also allows the plant to be simulated prior to the critical commissioning phase, which ensures a reliable implementation. The operators can also receive targeted training before the system is commissioned.
The digital twin in operation
You stay informed of current plant status at all times while the plant is in operation. And you can significantly increase the reliability and availability of your plant by continuously monitoring your mechanical assets.
The digital twin in maintenance
You can plan your servicing and maintenance activities in advance, which keeps unscheduled plant downtimes to a minimum. Changes to the plant created by maintenance activities or a component replacement are directly incorporated in the digital twin. All the documents and plans affected are also automatically updated so that the latest plant documentation is available at all times.
