The manufacturer says that the new software works in the same way as a brain: Model in the Middle has a meta position and works autonomously to coordinate data connections, analyses, monitoring, and forecasts and to make independent decisions based on the relevant data obtained. To this end, the program reproduces digital twins of various system components and production systems, and enables these to communicate with each other, with the aim of boosting the efficiency of networked production.

The software is basically an event-driven data pool, which pools data from various sources through databases and ERP systems to facilitate integrated processing and management, thereby enabling digital images of different physical or logical objects to interact. The result: simplified troubleshooting and the option of integrating predictive maintenance solutions from different providers.
