SCENARIOS FOR THE FACTORY AND PLANT ENGINEERING
IN THE ERA OF INCREASING DIGITIZATION
Due to the complex task in the plant automation, KARŌN pursues a scientific-methodical approach for the automation of processes and tasks. By this, scenarios for the digital planning of factories and plants are created:
- Virtual planning in the context of producing companies
- Development of cyber-physical systems and simulation models
- Opportunities and solution approaches by the use of digital system engineering and manufacturing tools
In all of our activities we follow the vision of an independent performance of tasks. To put it plainly: a process or a production should run smoothly, manual interventions of humans should be reduced as much as possible. This scenario offers a fundamental basis for meeting industry 4.0.
Visualization of virtual realities
In many cases the 3D simulation is a valuable development tool. With the aid of 3D visualization glasses a planner can visit the virtual plant and experience interference contours, logistics flow and production processes. In terms of industry 4.0, the development of technical sections with regards to energy efficiency, handling, quality and time saving can be increased significantly.
Flexibility and adaptability
Another criterion of modern automation systems is their flexibility and their adaptability. For example to low standardized work steps because of strong changes in cycle times and product types. Or to location related features that are caused by external interfering factors like the outdoor-use of robots.
After defining the requirements profile, the concept will be developed. It is tested by the use of a prototype and the automatic operation. The aim of testing is the commissioning of the system under real conditions.
