What does that mean?
Whether in mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry, medical technology, aviation or energy technology: highly complex machines and plants are used for very specific tasks in every industry today. However, production and commissioning are not the end of the story: maintenance, repairs, conversion, dismantling and ultimately disposal follow.
During all these steps, digital information that can be called up at a central point gives all users or service staff a detailed overview of the respective machine (= Digital Information Twin). In the case of repairs, for example, this helps to find the affected spare part as quickly as possible, order it, replace it and put the machine back into operation as quickly as possible.
