INGENJÖR 4.0 — Cyber Physical Systems and Digital Twins (I2)

This learning module will cover the general terminology and concepts related to Cyber-Physical Systems and Digital Twins, particularly an overview of their different industrial application possibilities, e.g., manufacturing systems design, configuration, planning, scheduling & optimization.

THIS LEARNING MODULE STARTS MARCH 29, 2021

Correspondence regarding the module will be sent to participants near the end of March 2021.

DESCRIPTION

Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) can be defined as systems composed of collaborating computational entities which are in intensive connection with the surrounding physical world and its on-going processes, providing and using data-accessing and data-processing services available on the internet, at the same time (Monostori 2014), with the realization of the increasing importance of the interactions between interconnected computing systems and the physical world (Wang, Törngren & Onori 2016). In this sense, Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) can be understood as systems that consist of autonomous and cooperative elements/sub-systems that are getting into connection with each other in situation-dependent ways, on and across all levels of production, from processes, production lines, to logistics networks. As pointed out by Monostori (2014), modeling the operation of CPPS and also predicting their emergent behavior raises a series of basic and application-oriented research tasks. Above all, integration of analytical and simulation-based models to their physical counterparts, i.e., Digital Twins (DT), can be projected to become more significant than ever in future industrial applications.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize and explain the terminology for key concepts and technologies of CPS and DT within the context of Industry 4.0.
  • Understand the state-of-the-art of DT for the process/cell/line level engineering and their possible uses for verification, analysis and optimization.
  • Describe different CPS and DT applications scenarios in manufacturing.
  • Through a survey and review, propose a possible application of CPS and DT in industry.

MODULE STRUCTURE

The learning module is a mixture of self-study, webinars, and cross-company exercises.

CONTENT

This module will cover the themes:

  • Key enabling technologies for CPS
  • Virtual Commissioning
