Instantly gather valuable insight into the real-world performance of products and processes to improve engineering, reduce costs and gaining in competitive advantage with cloud based CAD solutions.
What is Digital Twin at design stage
A Design Digital twin is a digital representation of an object or system with contextual & operational awareness. It allows you to simulate systems through their visual representations along with their physical behavior before real-world product exists.
3DEXPERIENCE twins integrate product data through a range of unified design products like CATIA for mechanical and system design and SIMULIA for finite element analysis and simulation.
We recently collaborated with engineering.com on a survey among SMB engineers which revealed the interesting benefits that MBSE using Virtual Twin provides:
Increase engineering efficiency with all data readily available on one single environment, available to all team members
Detect and solve potential problems early with integrated data and simulations
Understand the behavior of the real product thanks multidisciplinary system of systems simulations and fine tune the product’s future user experience
Make rapid and accurate decisions based on simulation results
Evolution of digital-twin technology
Multidisciplinary capabilities enable designers to progressively enhance their model with additional facets, going further than just geometry and part design, embedding system characteristics of the product into the model.
This is commonly called Model-based systems engineering (MBSE). Through simulation of several types of realistic behaviors, the model becomes a virtual “asset” using advanced functional and physical modeling.
By integrating all data on one platform, 3DEXPERIENCE twin allows manufacturers to analyze information within its complete context and create accurate virtual models for experimentation.
