Food & beverage manufacturers must be nimble in project execution to take advantage of frequent changes in market demands.
A rapidly advancing technology to aid in successful project execution is Digital Twin. The Digital Twin is a representation of the physical plant assets (i.e. process equipment, instrumentation and controls) and the processes that take place within them (i.e. chemical reactions, separation processes, heat transfer).
For the project execution phase of the production lifecycle, A Digital Twin help during these phases:
By first testing and making process improvements using the digital twin, engineers can take advantage of an accurate model of the process dynamics that can be thoroughly tested before construction begins. New operating procedures can then be verified before implementation, reducing labor and startup times.
This greatly minimizes risks by preventing disruption of actual plant operations and high expenditure on physical resources. Moreover, by reducing online testing and qualification, food and beverage producers get to move their new products to the market faster.
Through simulation, training can begin before, during or after the new process development. The digital twin enables operators to gain competency on all levels including process operations, startups, shutdowns and even on hazardous or infrequent events without ever risking production.
Read the whitepaper Emerson Digital Twin: A Key Technology for Digital Transformation for more on how your odds of success with your capital project execution can be improved with Digital Twin technology.
