Recent developments towards Industry 4.0 have led to focus in cyber-physical system, internet of things, and smart manufacturing that combined with the huge volume of data generated for the entire manufacturing cycle could lead to complete transformation of manufacturing of products. After the implementation of Industry 4.0 framework, both process and analytical data of the production line can be centralized into a cloud-based platform, where users can retrieve and visualize all relevant manufacturing information in the system. This is the first step towards the development of a Digital Twin which is defined as a virtual construct of a physical system that mirror physical system behavior completely.
In this talk, our work towards developing process systems engineering approaches (models and optimization frameworks) towards this goal will be presented and supported by different applications from pharmaceutical manufacturing focusing on continuous integration and production facilities.
Understand what a digital twin is and how can be used in pharmaceutical manufacturing
Understand the work that has been done in the modeling of pharmaceutical unit operations
Understand what is needed to implement digital twin concepts in their own organizations
