Case Study - Reducing Automation System Risk with Simulation and Emulation

Increasing global competition and an awareness of the need to pivot away from on-site commissioning to safer and more cost-effective virtual methods are the main drivers behind a growing interest in industrial analytical simulation.

Simulation Design for Rapid Prototyping

Q&A with Ravi Kunju, Altair: Digital twins offer designers the opportunity to analyze the impact of operational conditions without requiring the production of a prototype until much further along in the manufacturing process when mfg's have a greater certainty of success.

Siemens and Dassault Systèmes Take Top Spots in ABI Research's Manufacturing Simulation Software Competitive Assessment

ABI Research chose these vendors for the assessment due to their simulation capabilities in discrete manufacturing specifically, where software is used to simulate physical processes digitally to optimize engineering, planning, and operations on the factory floor.

Industrial Software for Simulation and Emulation

Companies who do not carry out emulation (or virtual commissioning) can only start controls testing when the real system is at least predominantly assembled, which means they are near ramp and handover, with a large amount of unpredictable testing yet to be started, and probably onsite and under close client scrutiny. Hardly the best of conditions for carrying out the methodical task of analytical verification, debugging and repair.

The Value of Virtual Simulation vs Traditional Methods

Overall, the benefits of virtual simulation outweigh traditional design methods on numerous levels, enabling product design timescales to be met more efficiently, and ultimately in a way that helps companies to innovate and grow.
