If you are a machine designer and your end customer asks for a digital twin of your machine, will you be ready? More and more companies want to ensure that new machinery will work before an investment is made. To do this, they want to virtually commission the machine beforehand. This can only be done if you have a digital copy or twin of your machine that is more than just a 3D model, but can behave as close as possible to the real machine.
- Understand the value of having a digital twin of your machine to evaluate different concepts in the design phase and virtually commission a machine without hardware
- Describe how the mechanical and automation development in a project can be done in parallel and not sequentially saving time and money
- Explain how digitalization can add tremendous value for machine designers and the consequences of not preparing for this now
