Control systems, the virtual way

Julien Schmaltz

Principal consultant


To demonstrate the possibilities and benefits of model driven engineering, the ICT Group developed a demonstrator using the 24 V factory simulation of FisherTechniek. The control software has been written in Dezyne, a model driven technology produced by Verum Software Tools. ICT created a digital twin of the factory using Prespective, a tool easing the creation of such models from CAD drawings and produced by Unit040. In this talk, we reflect about our experiences in developing and applying these different models.
