The Importance of the Digital Twin

The creation of a digital representation of products is a by-product of digital manufacturing and the digital thread, the essence of which is to maintain and re-use digital information developed during the design and manufacturing of a product throughout the life of that product. That digital product information is often called a digital twin. The so-called digital twin …

How Can We Make Manufacturing Smarter?

Engineering.com’s Ian Wright interviews Eric Green, Vice President of DELMIA User Experience and Advocacy on manufacturing’s transition from supply chains to value networks.  In days past, the majority of gains in manufacturing efficiency were won on the shop floor. Nowadays, optimizing a production line is a much more abstract affair. Manufacturers have access to more …

Technology Makes Manufacturing Work

A company I know has a thriving business making small electrical components by the millions, selling them to major electronics companies around the globe. If you’re wondering how a U.S.-based company successfully competes with Chinese manufacturers, and actually sells a lot of product to these same Chinese companies, the answer is technology. A tour of …

The great Archimedes, one of the forefathers of both modern astronomy and invention, is said to have boasted to King Hiero that if he were given a lever and a place to stand, he could move the Earth. The king called his bluff, giving Archimedes the assignment of launching a beached ship. Undaunted, Archimedes devised …

A MODEL IN THE MAKING – Virtual simulations of many-layered systems hold promise of taming complexity

Engineering complex systems involves unifying multiple disciplines, which often operate in silos and use a wide range of incompatible tools. Engineering for the Internet of Things (IoT) demands even more interconnections. Virtual prototyping with a model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach – which uses integrated 3D digital simulations of all systems working together – promises relief. …
