Increase efficiency, maturity and innovation in the engineering tool chain
by automated generation of virtual production systems
Engineering is probably the most time consuming part of innovation, which could be optimized by usage of virtual engineering and virtual commissioning tools. But since these technologies involve additional engineering efforts, it is important to lower these efforts
* Introducing multi-vendor model repositories for easy access to equipment component models
* Integrating feedback information from operation and maintenance phases into planning processes
* Specification and interpretation of standards based interoperable models and interfaces.
The approach involves development of extensions on existing engineering tools (like CAD, ECAD and control programming tools), simulation tools and the development of server-based model distribution systems.
The consortium, spanning the complete value chains within car/truck production and machine building domains, has the power to push the ENTOC concepts towards all the relevant pillars of the business value chain – even setting standards.
The Entoc international meeting was held at Nääs fabriker, in Gothenburg, 31 January – 1 February, 2019.
ENTOC Workshop: Passing on component models to end customers with a focus on production facilities in the automotive industry
During an Entoc workshop at Weingarten November 29, 2018, the need for an exchange possibility of logical and physical behaviour models of components for the purpose of securing control programs by means of virtual commissioning was discussed. The discussions were attended by well-known representatives from the industry and the positions of the automotive industry, component Read more about ENTOC Workshop: Passing on component models to end customers with a focus on production facilities in the automotive industry[…]
