Integrated Machine Design and Simulation

Machine builders and equipment manufacturers around the world must respond to ever-changing customer demands, new technologies, and global competition.

A digital transformation implementing integrated machine design and simulation can help innovate and meet the demand for more intelligent, flexible, configurable, and automated industrial machinery equipment.

Simulation-driven design practices can help to keep pace with the growing complexity of current and future machines.

This infographic provides a brief overview of simulation-driven design – one of the three aspects of Intelligent Performance Engineering.

Simulation driven design and machine building

Machine builders regularly balance cost, performance, and requirements when designing the next generation of machines.

Engineers using the digital twin and simulation integrated with their design software helps them achieve the right balance of all three while maximizing machine reliability.

The digital twin provides a digital prototype to help predict the performance of a machine under a variety of conditions.

When designers and simulation engineers can use the same model in one system, it drives innovation and boosts productivity.

Simulation software for mechanical engineers

When machine builders create a comprehensive digital twin of the machine within the cloud, it improves the simulation of various components, equipment, and their characteristics more accurately.

This overall process results in:

  • Higher-quality designs
  • Shorter commissioning time
  • More accurate predictive maintenance
  • Reduced machine downtime in the field

Machine predictive maintenance and design software

A digital twin can be used to optimize machines and equipment, which results in higher-quality designs, shorter commissioning times, and predictive maintenance capabilities.

Using simulation-driven design, machine builders and equipment manufacturers can more easily implement predictive maintenance procedures.

With a machine predictive maintenance plan in place, customers experience better performance, improved reliability, and reduced cost of ownership.
