Abstract: The versatile concept of the digital twin is being applied in various economic sectors. To exploit its full potential, the digital twin has to be adaptable to changing requirements. In this paper we address the configuration of digital twins with a focus on a flexible and modular simulation chain. Thereby, we utilize the Functional Mock-Up Interface to enable variable configurations based on basic simulation components. We validate the concept by a prototypical implementation.
Keywords: flexible simulation chain, digital twin, web-based, industry 4.0, FMU, configuration
