This paper presents latest research approaches in manufacturing automation based on cyber-physical systems. Three industrial examples are given to sketch how cyber physical systems particularly Digital Twin, change the engineering, commissioning and operation of manufacturing. This paper introduces the concept of the digital twin and discusses how it can be created and kept up-to-date throughout that lifecycle. Methodologies are presented on how engineering data can be interconnected, how a digital twin can be kept updated in operation and data can be used to learn and steer operation.
