Department Energy Systems and Infrastructures: Digital Systems for Industrial Processes and Facilities

Digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution are confronting process manufacturers with the challenge of expediently managing and utilizing data produced in complex manufacturing processes to add value. Creating a digital twin is often expedient for this. Our assistance systems and analysis tools deliver building blocks for the digital twin of your processing equipment. Our strategies for modularizing processing equipment complete the digital penetration of your processing equipment.
