FACTSHEET: Advanced Plant Model (APM)
How does it work?
The solution is an easy to use Factory 3D Designer which can be shown in an internet browser with the functionality to interact with robots on the factory floor.
Each user should built their own geometric catalogue of objects and factory layout map, after which the map can be populated with the objects.
What problem does it solve?
What is needed to use it?
Most digital twin solutions are complicated and specific. This one is easy to create and start using on any device with an internet connection.

Advanced Plant Modelling and 3D Digital Twin
The Advanced Plant Model (APM) aims to provide a real-time digital representation of the ongoing state of a given shop floor including the representation of workers, industrial and mobile robots, work-stations, manufacturing lines, racks, boxes, palettes, kits and parts, consolidated by a production schedule generated by a Manufacturing Execution Sytem (MES).
The Digital Twin Designer is the element inside the APM system that provides the means to enable the User to build the digital representation of manufacturing areas.
