It is difficult to develop PLC software for modern machine tools due to their increasing functionality and the resulting complexity. One approach to managing this is the model-based development and simulation-aided verification of control software. A suitable method for this is described in this paper. It focuses on a method for modeling the control functionality and a simulation system for commissioning the developed programs using a virtual model of the machine.
