Im Rahmen der stufenweisen Umsetzung von Industrie 4.0 erreicht die Vernetzung und Digitalisierung die gesamte Produktion. Den physischen Produktionsprozess nicht nur cyber-physisch zu begleiten, sondern durch eine virtuelle, digitale Kopie zu erfassen und optimieren, stellt ein enormes Potential für die Produktionssystemplanung und -steuerung dar. Zudem ermöglichen digitale Modelle die Anwendung intelligenter Produktionssteuerungsverfahren und stellen damit einen Beitrag zur Verbreitung optimierender adaptiver Systeme dar.
