Siemens workshop on the digital twin and virtual commissioning

Siemens workshop on the digital twin and virtual commissioning

Machines and the products they produce are growing more and more complex, and must meet stringent availability demands. In addition, companies want to be able to respond more and more quickly to new market demands, and need new machines faster. The digital twin provides the faster and more flexible way to achieve this.

Engineering departments today must develop smart products that integrate mechanical functions with electronics and controls. This requires current engineering practices for product performance verification to evolve into a digital twin approach, helping you to predict performance across all critical attributes earlier. Physics-based simulations enable designs to be optimised and innovations delivered faster and with greater confidence.

The digital twin is created when a new machine is designed in an entirely virtual environment. You can use it to perform multiphysical simulations and discover where problems will arise, and which components you still need to optimise, even before the real machine is constructed. Because the data is completely consistent, and is available to all the employees working on the development, the project can benefit from simultaneous input from the mechanical, electrical, and automation disciplines.

Siemens PLM is running a workshop at its Solihul office where it will demonstrate how quickly and easily companies can adopt and benefit from a digital twin. Find out more here.
