Challenge and Motivation

  • The digital twin as the digital representation of the shop floor is a critical component of modern production
  • Real-time capability of the digital twin is in high need for a unified digital architecture as many devices on the shop floor are real-time capable


  • Defining the state of the art of implementation possibilities for digital twins
  • Investigation of real-time needs and implementation strategies


  • Classification of implementation possibilities for digital twins (AAS, OPC UA, …)
  • Evaluate the state of standardization and implementation in the context of industrial requirements
  • Investigate different implementation frameworks
  • Identify further steps to realize a real-time capable digital twin
