As medical devices become more complex and customized products more common, keeping pace with regulatory standards and rapid changes in the market is difficult. Successfully navigating these challenges involves a renewed focus on Operational Excellence by simulating scenarios in advance. Siemens Production Twin can play an important role by connecting engineering and operations and creates a digital representation of the manufacturing process.
Simulation across all manufacturing levels with the digital twin
A digital twin offers medical device manufacturers the capability to conduct factory, plant and line simulation and process/workstation simulation. Companies can gain the ability to digitally model all aspects of their manufacturing operations for optimized efficiency in a virtual 3D environment.
Medical device manufacturing optimization with process simulation
It can be hard to pinpoint production issues without real-time information. The Production Digital Twin provides real-time visualization, machine-learning and what-if scenarios to enable closed-loop continuous improvements in production and costs. Implementation offers a clearer window into operations, minimizes risk, and reduces downtime and time to market.
How the Production Digital Twin helps manufacturers:
- Create new business models
- Improve collaboration between teams and organizations
- Boost process and production efficiencies
- Increase product and production quality
- Speed up time to market
