LIVONIA, MI May 15, 2019 – Abdul Mahamadi a Sr. Controls Engineer and James Sartor a Controls Engineer along with Shawn Adams VP Sales and Marketing for AUTOParkit presented the AUTOParkit Digital Twin at the Siemens Plant Simulation Users Meeting which was attended by more that 40 participants to learn about the latest advancements in building a digital twin.
Siemens has pioneered the idea of building both a digital twin for new products as well as for the manufacturing line required to build it. AUTOParkit had its first taste of integrating Siemens’ PLC Sim and Plant Sim roughly 15 months ago. The simulation was being created on a design that was already complete and well into production. Abdul and James collaborated on the approach/implementation and with the continual support from Siemens were able to create numerous scenarios to validate the Main PLC Code that is used to orchestrate the simultaneous movement of over a dozen vehicles to complete parking and retrieval for AUTOParkit, a fully Automated Parking System.
