Start Now: Profiting From the Digital Twin Can Take Time

The concept of the Digital Twin is still evolving but it is powerful and self-evident enough that most manufacturers believe that they need it. Leading organizations expect that digital twins will help them deliver better products, services, and experiences to their customers, at lower costs than are currently possible. As digital replicas of physical (or cyber-physical) products, digital twins should act as crystal balls allowing engineering teams to understand how their products will behave and respond to real-world use and abuse, long before that information is needed.

New PLM, ERP and CRM Solutions in 18 Months

Digital Engineering

Complexity, precision and regulation are watchwords in the medical device world-ones that apply to both the product itself and the business that runs behind it. When a company with a new name is formed out of a leading brand, transferring and integrating the huge amount of data involved can be a significant challenge.

How Does One Get Started with PLM and the Digital Twin?

Machine Design

The future of computer-aided design systems in an Internet of Things world is the Digital Twin. Digital Twins leverage data from CAD systems, product lifecycles, manufacturing systems, and sensors to create a realistic virtual model of your product, enabling you to predict performance, maintenance, and failures.

What Does Additive Manufacturing Mean To Your PLM strategy?

Manufacturing Net

Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a hot topic in the engineering, manufacturing, and product development worlds right now. People are excited about it for many reasons, and there is no doubt that it will be disruptive to the way products are ordered, designed, produced, and distributed. So if you’re beginning to implement, or even just consider AM, what will this mean to your PLM strategy? Will AM just create more files to manage, like the STL file format used to “3D print” the part? Or is there more information that needs to be managed along with a corresponding change in processes? What is the impact to the digital thread? Do we redefine Design for Manufacturing (DFM) because AM “design-driven manufacturing” is breaking so many of the past rules of manufacturing?

Roadblocks Slow the Digital Twin Race

Digital Engineering

Although an engine tweak or a small part change can deliver the win, the frenetic pace of the NASCAR race season means a good idea has a shelf life of only about a week or two. To accelerate its process, Hendrick Motorsports is throttling up a digital twin effort to test drive changes quickly before building physical prototypes and to leverage real-time engine performance data to fine-tune winning designs.
