Industry 4.0: Simulation [Full subscriber]

Simulation in the process industry and specifically in sugar factories is not breathtakingly new. Most processes are designed in a lab model first, and then scaled up to the industrial scale step by step. Each step is a simulation, a trial, to learn about the next evolution. And this is still the case today (figure 1). Figure 1: With a fully transparent production, quality optimization through simulation becomes possible   What makes the topic interesting under the ideas of digitalization in the process industry is the chance to virtually jump a few of the intermediate steps—utilizing the power of software…
