Workshop: Digital Twin – the digital prototype

26. June 2019 @ 9:00 - 17:00


Workshop and target group

During a one-day workshop, the advantages of the digital prototype in product development will be demonstrated in a practical way. As an example, a digital prototype for a construction crane will be developed and assembled. Different components will be investigated and designed with regard to the application scenarios, model-based processes for controlling the system will be demonstrated, error cases simulated and a virtual commissioning of the digital prototype with a real coupled PLC will be shown.

The participants will be able to follow the digital product design in small groups on the computer themselves. In addition, the basics of the methods used will be explained and further industrial applications will be presented. The workshop is aimed at development engineers and development managers, and through to interested managing directors who are looking to boost their prototype development through physically correct simulations or setting up / expanding a simulation department.



The newly created Systems and Control Innovation Lab (SCIL) is located at the DLR Institute of System Dynamics and Control. In the modernly equipped laboratory hall, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have access to the latest methods and software tools for modelling, controlling and regulating complex mechatronic systems.

The ZD.B dual-topic platform Digital Production & Engineering is an innovation promoting platform for Bavaria’s experts in the fields of digital product development and production, which is networked and sets impulses in terms of content. The ZD.B itself is a core element of the Bavarian State Government to strengthen Bavarian companies, research institutions and founders in the context of digitalisation.
