Russia: The digital twin reproduces the operation of the 12,000 m2 workshop of the car repair company and helps to select the best option for its future reconstruction.
Digital technology has made it possible to approve the layout of new equipment, define where machines need to be replaced, and distribute the work of employees. To date, Tekhkompleks, a subsidiary of the railway operator NefteTransServis, can repair up to 35,000 wheel sets and more than 3,600 cars per year.
The digital twin highlighted options for change and allowed calculating their efficiency. In a virtual environment, the managers were able to choose a viable reconstruction plan to avoid undue expenditure. In the future, Tekhkompleks plans to use the digital twin to verify its repair plans and calculate production efficiency and manpower requirements.
