For Subscribers of Capability pack - Premium Capability pack

What's new?

  • Within this release, we have consolidated Closed-Loop Foundation, Closed-Loop Product Definition, and Closed-Loop System Simulation applications into a single application, Product Twin. This application has the following capabilities:
  • Easily connect the asset's IoT data in MindSphere with its simulation model
  • Manage one or more simulation models representing different subsystems of the asset
  • Map IoT data to simulation parameters for easy bi-directional data exchange between MindSphere and simulation model
  • Visualize asset's simulation output, compare it with output from other assets and simulation models for more insights
  • Virtually analyze asset performance by changing simulation model parameters to studying the simulation results
  • Schedule recurring headless simulations and automatically import the result back in MindSphere
  • View field events and create Teamcenter Issue from MindSphere
  • Connect to Simcenter Amesim™ using FMI 2.0 based OOTB connector. Interface with Teamcenter™ for additional product information

  • Within this release, we have consolidated Closed-Loop Foundation and Closed-Loop Discrete Events Simulation applications into a single application, Factory Twin. This application has the following capabilities:

  • Easily connect the production facility's IoT data with its simulation model and visualize it in action in 3D
  • Perform production replay by channeling IoT data to the simulation model. Use all existing Technomatix Plant Simulation™ libraries as diagnostic tools.
  • Map IoT data to simulation parameters for easy bi-directional data exchange between MindSphere and simulation model.
  • Transform IoT data using unique and reusable transformation recipes to calculate machine KPIs
  • Perform What-IF analysis by building different recipe configurations
  • Calculate machine KPIs and other important metrics like MTTR, MTBF, etc.
  • Calculate distribution characteristics (probability distribution) of machine KPIs for accurate simulation modelling. Identify the best fitting distribution.
  • Schedule recurring headless simulations and automatically imports result back in MindSphere
