Production of the future within the Volkswagen Group: digital, networked and sustainable

Digital Twin
The Fraunhofer Institute has developed the first prototype of a digital twin factory "Smart Factory 4.0". At the Digital Factory Group Conference Atakan Suennetcioglu presented the digital prototype, a 1:1 image of a schematic factory with all the equipment and components used. This allows the monitoring, analysis and optimization of all processes in production. Malfunctions are immediately detected by the system and remedied by digital intervention.
