SELMO method for a new plant without construction:
The real signals and the assemblies are derived from the process. This makes it possible to easily insert known assemblies. For example, a roller conveyor can be directly selected as a mechatronic assembly in the process. This results in the inputs and outputs as well as the logic sequences. These can be inserted as templates.
The logic sequence is described as in the retrofit. The assemblies in a bit-oriented manner result in the necessary signals. The real signals can be given as information to the electrical construction as well as to the mechanics. If a movement is necessary, an actuator is defined. This actuator has defined inputs and outputs and needs parameters for the software. In this way, the zone can be used to create a default for assemblies. If there is a zone as a bit that is not an HMI or real bit, it is certain that a bit must be generated here. This is done by a driver function. From the process, all function-related signals are now defined and assigned to the above-mentioned plant zones. All experts thus have a common picture and understanding of the process. From this, the machine or plant is created.
The drivers are assigned and managed from a database in the zone. The drivers represent the interface to the HMI, production data acquisition and function. The parameters from defined drivers are automatically assigned and generated by SELMO.
Each bit can represent the information on the assembly, E-plan, installation instructions, ERP article, etc.. This provides the necessary descriptions and definitions. In this way, we generate a digital data twin of the plant or machine from our SELMO model.
