For many years, the use of simulations in plant planning has been an established component of project management for transport routes, storage systems, picking systems, and in short, intralogistics. Plant layouts and rough throughput analyzes are compiled on the basis of 3D layouts with time specifications.
However, the use ends as soon as the automation comes into play during project execution. With the complexity of the plants today, the high level of automation and the great flexibility, however, operation on the automation system with the real control sequences is indispensable. This is the only way to realistically test and optimize reliability, fault tolerance, throughput and material flow strategies. The solution is the „digital twin“. It means the coupling of the automation system to a virtual plant, which includes the functional aspects of the drive behavior up to the 3D general cargo handling. This is no longer a topic of the future, but has been practiced for years with the WinMOD System.
Our many years of experience have shown that it is one of the most important in the automation of logistics systems good standardization in automation, i. e. in the case of delivery components, equipment designations, symbolists, etc. Here, the virtual systems are virtually created at the „push of a button“ and are used completely from the start. Even if the real system is already running, process optimizations, fault analyzes or strategy adjustments in the automation system can first be run through the virtual system.
The current issue of WinMOD Special Intralogistics 2018 summarizes the results achieved for intralogistics plants.
