Dpart - A digital twin framework for the machining domain
Todays' heterogeneous manufacturing environments and isolated manufacturing elements hinder the realization of a complete and data consistent digital twin. Against this background, an increased connectivity based on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) might be the future key enabler for the digital twin. However, it requires each domain to transfer, rearrange and rethink their individual data solutions in a framework that is IIoT-ready. This paper presents an IIoT-based implementation of a digital twin framework for machining, enabling the creation of a complete and data consistent digital twin throughout process planning, manufacturing and quality assurance. Different use cases are introduced based on the example of a blade integrated disk for modern turbofan engines.
