Physics-based simulation offers a distinct advantage by providing higher fidelity, and it should be utilized alongside early-stage Discrete Event Simulation.
Four Challenges to Consider When Pursuing a Simulation Initiative
Here's How to Use Digital Twins to Increase Operational Output by 15%. How Concept Digital Twins Can Drastically Improve Material Flow and Throughput.
Kalypsonian Brian Ding joined our client First Solar at this year’s Automation Fair to discuss their digital transformation journey. First Solar is the largest solar manufacturer in the western hemisphere. Our goal with them was to create a superior digital representation of its brand-new greenfield facility in Ohio.
Companies are increasingly focused on maximizing the value of their data using digital tools, for instance, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) or digital twins. This digitization enables companies to lower operational risks, respond faster to changes, operate more efficiently and accelerate speed-to-operation by providing them with the means to execute activities virtually.
Ultimately, the future vision for mining is an autonomous fixed plant to minimize process variability, maximize productivity, reduce human intervention, reduce cost and improve safety.
