Abstract
Industry 4.0 is blurring the lines between the physical, and digital spheres of global production systems. Industry 4.0 sets the foundations for a completely connected factories that are characterized by the digitization and interconnection of supply chains, production equipment and production lines, and the application of the latest advanced digital information technologies to manufacturing activities. The manufacturing paradigm championed by the Industry 4.0 brings together processes, software services and systems, machines, devices, IoT, sensors, valves, actuators, manufacturing systems, and connected digital factories. All these systems have both a digital component and a physical interaction with the real world. The result is a “digital-twin” model of the connected ‘smart’ factory of the future where computer-driven systems create a virtual copy of the physical world and help make decentralized decisions with much higher degree of accuracy.
This talk has dual purpose. It first describes how the concept of digital twins enable a model-based engineering approach that enables a concurrent, collaborative design process where users examine and define requirements, propose solution architectures, demonstrate and exchange ideas with stakeholders, and consider product feature tradeoffs. Subsequently, it proposes a novel programming paradigm and a flexible environment that helps product engineers to develop design-to-production industrial automation solutions by employing structured higher-level modular software techniques.
