  • What Bottlenecks Limit the Adoption of Simulation Governance?

    The idea of simulation governance is easy to understand: The application of numerical simulation technology must be properly governed in every organization. In this article, ESRD Chairman and Co-Founder Dr. Barna Szabó explains that the responsibility for simulation governance rests with board-level executives. They exercise this responsibility through setting the goals, objectives and metrics to ensure that the economic value of numerical simulation is positive.

  • Make an impact in the real world with Digital Twins

    Let's discuss the importance of keeping your digital twins in sync with real products. Models so accurate they’re a digital twin of the product you’re creating can help you throughout the design and development process. 1D models can help you determine the best architecture for your multi-physics system, 3D models can help you design into the details, and testing can help you improve modelling realism. Combining all the three technologies gives you the highest possible accuracy while making design decisions. But in today’s world the design job isn’t done when you ship. You have to be able to take feedback, track how products are used – with detailed data coming from the increasing numbers of sensors in modern devices – and then use that to support, maintain and improve the products you have out in the market, as well as incorporating all that information into your next generation. That means keeping your digital twins in sync with the real products, even once they’re in customers’ hands.

  • Could Digital Twins remove doubt from due diligence during M&A?

    Innovation and new technology applications are being established as part of core business management tools and are starting to appear in the area of managing M&A. When M&A is announced, organisations are committing to buy an asset or asset groups – at which point a due diligence effort is usually conducted to establish the actual state of the asset. Digital Twins have shown significant promise for the management of assets, and could also be transformational in the M&A process to qualify the quality of the assets.

    Digital Twins in the Hot Seat: Realizing Great Expectations

    PREVIOUS WEBINAR AVAILABLE ON DEMAND The phrase “digital twin” has become the be-all-and-end-all of manufacturing buzzwords, stirring up Utopian views on what it can do for predictive maintenance, simulation and more. But how is a digital twin different from a 3D CAD product model? Can it ever live up to its full potential? Is anyone really making use of digital twins? In this LIVE webcast, DE challenges panelists to discuss: a no-nonsense definition of digital twins; the types of products that make sense as digital twins; real-world examples of digital twins in operation.

  • How to Quickly Create a Simulation-Based Digital Twin of an IIoT-Connected Product

    How to Quickly Create a Simulation-Based Digital Twin of an IIoT-Connected Product

    Digital twins are virtual representations of physical products. They have the ability to unlock value and optimization throughout a product’s lifecycle. By leveraging real-world data from IIoT-connected product and physics-based simulations, digital twins can better inform and predict product performance. This enables users to develop new designs, operations and controls to optimize performance, reduce downtime and enable service-based products — often without the customer needing to upgrade hardware. The technology to get an IIoT digital twin running is available, however, many organizations are having a hard time implementing and connecting all of the digital, physical and data assets together. With the help of ANSYS Twin Builder and PTC ThingWorx, engineers can simplify the creation of digital twins using physics-based simulations.

  • Why digital twins will be the backbone of industry in the future

    For industry and the internet of things (#IoT), digital twins, offering virtual representations of real-world products will be the innovation backbone of the future. Entire systems can be simulated and tested long before a physical prototype has been built. Even operation of existing systems can be further optimized using a #DigitalTwin. Imagine the extraordinary possibilities merging them with artificial intelligence (#AI). Industry experts for digital twins are already using all these possibilities in concrete applications.

  • Virtual Sensors in Digital Twins

    "By definition, a virtual sensor is a type of software that, given the available information, processes what a physical sensor otherwise would. It learns to interpret the relationships between the different variables, and observes readings from the different instruments. Think of it as a kind of a “ghost” of the physical sensor."
