Abstract

A variety of virtual engineering and commissioning tools are available in the market. However, the considerations of the manufacturing system's life cycle and the development of the digital twin vary. Thus, there is no guidance for manufacturing systems developers on links between the lifecycle and the recommended approaches to be followed when building the digital twin. This paper evaluates and compares the current approaches and tools which support Lifecycle to develop a Digital Twin. To do so, a set of criteria is derived from the IIC (Industrial Internet Consortium) industrial standard, and the corresponding tools that fulfil these criteria are presented. The software tools are evaluated based on an industrial case study conducted at WMG, the University of Warwick.
