The digital twin has accelerated changes within the manufacturing industry, and machine and equipment builders are adapting with new technology.
Across the industrial machinery landscape, several trends impact engineering, manufacturing, and service operations:
- Consumer-driven customization
- Smart machines
- Global competition and new business models
Read this ebook for an in-depth look at how machine builders are using digital twin software to adapt to the latest trends in the manufacturing industry.
Flexible Machine Design for Quick Customization
The manufacturing industry is more complex than it’s ever been, and digital twin software helps machine and equipment builders face the complexity head-on.
Digital twin software allows for flexible machine design and quick customization at a lower cost and in a fraction of the time.
That’s because the comprehensive digital twin provides valuable insights from simulations and allows for a faster response when customer preferences change.
Smart, flexible machines will define the future, and they’ll come from machinery companies built on a strong digital foundation.
Smart Machines and Hyper-automation Technology
Digital twin software is more important than ever as manufacturers move closer to smart machines and hyper-automation technology.
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) allows machine and equipment builders to take advantage of the generous amounts of data today’s machines generate.
This data can then be leveraged for intelligent programming for interactive, granular device control.
Additionally, cloud-based analytics accelerate learning about machine behavior and performance, leading to improvements in optimization and reliability.
Go to Market Faster with Digital Twin Technology for Designing, Testing and Building
Digital twin technology has simplified machine design, testing, and building.
The digital twin of a whole machine acts as a single thread running from the initial idea to the machine as it’s built through the end of life.
This single model becomes the single source of truth, eliminating the need to reenter data into other systems as a machine moves through design, testing and simulation, and even virtual commissioning.
With a simplified and streamlined process, machine builders can deliver improved, state-of-the-art machines faster.
