Digital Added Value - Virtual Commissioning (VIBN) as enabler
The VIBN belongs to the established phase of the engineering process at leading
suppliers of automation solutions. The benefit of VIBN becomes financially visible as a short-term ROI based on "best practice" implementations, provided that the entire value-added process is considered. The continued use of the Digital Twins created
for VIBN for the optimization of production, innovative service concepts as well as
platform for qualification of personnel leads to new value-added business models.
VDMA currently develops these strategic aspects with the participation of industry
experts as a practice-oriented guideline for VIBN. This should significantly facilitate
the entry of companies into digital value creation, including the VIBN. The availability of a digital twin as a platform for digital value creation will become a decisive
competitive advantage for component manufacturers and plant and machine
manufacturers as well as for plant operators and in the service sector.
