Abstract [en]

Increasing the total number of produced components in a pre-existing production line, which is a large-scale mechatronic system, is a continuous and never-ending story in industry. There is a need for tools and methods to develop the control software off-line, i.e. to manage programming, verification, validation, optimisation, training new operators, etc. without using the real production line. Therefore a general Virtual Real-Time Model, VRTM, for simulating industrial production lines is proposed. The VRTM is intended to be used for off-line control software development and is aimed at increase the throughput in highly automated production lines. The main features of the VRTM are that the same control software is used as in the real production line and that virtual real-time is used, implying that everything is time-synchronised and works in the same way as in the real production line (including security functions). An applied VRTM simulating a sheet-metal press line is implemented and validated. A comparison test with the press line at Volvo Car Manufacturing in Göteborg is performed with a satisfactory agreement. This shows that the VRTM can be used for off-line control software development.
