Virtual Commissioning (VC) is a method and tool for verifying and testing the PLC control program on a virtual digital model of the manufacturing system. It allows to visualize and test the control system before the real commissioning of the production systems. The aim of the research is to implement virtual reality (VR) into the VC method and to verify the mutual interaction of signals between the simulation in VR environment, the digital model of the production system and the control system. The introduction of VR in VC increases the concept by adding more realistic visualization and tracking, which extends its validation capabilities. The changes made in VR virtual environment are transferred to the simulation model and can be validated in a real production system. The real production robotic system transformed into a virtual form will be a case study with its verification. Also will be tested security protocols and proven human interaction with the system to control the system through the virtual HMI (virtual user interface) using VR.
