This course is about virtual commissioning of machines. It is designed for configuration engineers
project planners and programmers. It provides you with an overview of the interaction among the various software packages such as NX, MCD, TIA Portal, PLCSIM Advanced and SIMIT.
Digital Enterprise, Your Way to Industry 4.0 - discover the possibilities. Today's technologies are so complex that training on the software and the appropriate training equipment is almost indispensable to keep up to date.
Target group of this course are project engineers, project planners and programmers of mid-level and big industries, who deal with the design and virtual commissioning of machines.
The objective of the course is to achieve greater efficiency in the design, automation and commissioning of machines. Through an overview of the tool landscape, you will learn to better understand and evaluate the resulting possibilities and types of simulation.
This is achieved by:
New possibilities for the interaction of design and automation, from serial processes to parallel work. Automation can already begin and be tested during the design phase. The interaction of design and automation allows initial tests and virtual commissioning in the office without the need for a real machine or PLC.
