Siemens showcases COMOS software solution at Hillhead

Siemens showcased a range of its industrial digitalisation solutions at the Hillhead show in Derbyshire, UK, including the COMOS engineering platform, a software solution that enables digital twin and virtual-reality simulation of complex process plant models, including mill drives.

“Using 3D engineering data from basic and detailed engineering phases throughout the entire asset lifecycle, highly complex process plant models – including mill drives – can be realistically represented in 3D (known as the digital twin), with COMOS acting as a global data centre,” Siemens said in a press release. “Up-to-date data is always available, not just for engineering and monitoring purposes, but also for operation and training. Service and maintenance work can be planned, simulated and executed efficiently.”

As an example, for maintenance, due dates, planned efforts and durations, as well as resources demand, materials, and utilities, are made available with COMOS and can be interfaced with external communication systems, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP).

“COMOS turns integrated engineering into integrated operations and is an excellent example of how rapidly digitalisation is evolving, providing better artificial intelligence to develop self-maintaining robots and manufacturing and processing systems,” Siemens continued. “These can take out the more hazardous elements for human operators, making processes much safer.”
