This paper is focused on the digital twin solution
to validate the performance optimization of production lines.
We propose three steps to approach the digital twin for
production lines. As the first step, a simulation model is
created to imitate real world behavior. After that, automation
engineering is applied to communicate between real world
and virtual model. A programmable logic controller (PLC)
code is embedded as a communication language. Digital twin
realization is shown by integration of simulation and
automation. A case study presents how to bring practical
benefits by applying the digital twin solution in production
line virtual commissioning.
