The paper addresses application of digitazation of production processes, which is part of organizational digitization, also known as Industry 4.0. It deals with modernization and optimization of production systems by creating models in simulation software via digital engineering. For our analysis, 8 real assembly lines were used, with an average of 15 workplaces, which were integrated into one universal line by means of simulation. The aim of our research was to create a digital twin of the real assambly lien and to analyse effectiveness of the proposed modernization universal assembly line using the generated statistical data.
