Digital Twins for Virtual Commissioning - Maplesoft Engineering Solutions

Digital Twins for Virtual Commissioning

Take the guesswork out of machine design by using Digital Twins for simulation-based motor sizing, PLC code testing, and more.

Virtual Commissioning with MapleSim

The commissioning process can be costly, unpredictable and time consuming. Whether you are creating a new product or making modifications to an existing design, virtual commissioning helps you identify control issues much earlier in the development cycle, when they are much easier and less expensive to correct

A Digital Twin is a virtual representation of your product, and the perfect companion to lower the risks involved in machine-level system integration.

Creating a traditional data-driven Digital Twin is expensive, which can exclude many of the companies best served by them. However, modern design tools can create model-driven Digital Twins to assist in product design, and are essential for virtual commissioning.

A model-driven Digital Twin can help you realize many of the benefits of a data-driven Digital Twin without having to manage the challenges of expensive sensors, data collection, and black-box behavioral algorithms. Since it doesn't need test data to predict behavior, a Digital Twin can be used for conceptual design before any physical prototype has been constructed. Once a design has been chosen, a Digital Twin can be connected to your controllers to test integration in a virtual commissioning phase, ironing out the issues you'd otherwise find on the production floor.
