Virtual Commissioning made easy with Model-Based Design


Overview

Virtual commissioning enables early test and verification of machine software by using a model of the machine. With simulation, the interaction between mechanics, machine software, and the product being manufactured can be tested, optimized and verified in different scenarios before the physical machine is available. This approach lowers costs, ensures high product quality, and speeds up commissioning times.

Please join this upcoming seminar from MathWorks and Vintecc for a deeper look into how simulation model of an automation plant or an industrial machinery can be used to test and validate modifications and upgrades before implementation on the actual equipment.

Using real-world examples, the seminar will discuss the complete workflow from creating the simulation models, testing configurations and code generation to PLC or other embedded targets (e.g. Beckhoff). Vintecc will share details of how virtual commissioning is practically implemented on business-critical engineering projects.
