The process testbed at MxD is designed to showcase how Digitalization can enable todays connected mobile worker. The testbed software brings together everything the individual requires to do their work, more efficiently. Valuable information is managed in one location, with tight integrations between the ERP, 3D Model, Lifecycle Management, Augmented Reality, Manufacturing Operations, Simulation and IIOT. Here, an Executable Digital Twin is recognized and Digital Twins are demonstrated, all from the plant floor with tablets and glasses.
Using a system design and simulation tool (Simcenter Flomaster) to be the platform to mimic the real system. This enables the user to run full scale tests virtually and reduce the cost as well as time in investigating the âwhat ifâ scenarios. All of the system components like pumps, valves, pipes and tanks are represented in the model with a digital counterpart. These components are driven by physical models. Instrumentation and control can be connected to the same PLC controllers and software that drive the physical test rig. real time results can be displayed as a gauge or meter or even superimposed with a color code right on the screen. This gives a way to know the variables not just where they are measured but all throughout the system.
