During the development of a machine, there are many risks that can jeopardize the ability to introduce the machine into production on schedule. So why wait until the final assembly to begin interdisciplinary verification of the machine
Virtual commissioning from Siemens makes it possible to conduct machine commissioning tests early in the development phase.
What-if scenarios can be tested with no risks involved, the engineering error quota gets reduced, and the security validated – before the real machine even exists.
Problems or errors detected in a virtual environment do not cause expensive repairs, and during the real machine assembly, the virtual machine can be used for testing and debugging of the PLC code – enabling a more effective and flexible use of resources.
