Abstract

Connecting a physical mechatronic manufacturing machine with its virtual counterpart has been explored widely over the last decades. Going from simple datalogging to detailed virtual models of the machines. Digital representations of the machine have revealed how to quickly optimize the machines, meanwhile predicting errors and bottleneck. However, fewer studies have looked at how to reduce the effort in developing a machine with digital twin competences, that facilitate changes without reengineering the machine. In this paper, we conduct a case study using a module-based conveyor setup in where we investigate how to effectively control the machine, and when, and how simulation should be used in this context. The result will allow discrete manufacturing companies to better understand when and where to use simulation, as well as how to develop a machine which can easier accommodate changes.
