Audi is virtualizing the shop floor with the virtual PLC from Siemens

Reducing the variety and number of devices and converting applications to software to make production faster, more robust, and more flexible – Audi’s goal was to virtualize shop floor automation. This required not only a new, IT-based infrastructure but also virtual PLCs. Siemens provided the key to success with SIMATIC S7-1500V.
