The new, revolutionary technology that can optimise your company’s productivity, reduce risks and bring down costs.

11/07/2017 by cidaut

Digital twins are an enormous advance in engineering simulation. By using simulation software in conjunction with real-time operational data transmitted from a working product, and integrating this with digital information about the product, businesses can analyse how their products operate in real-world conditions, and make reliable predictions about future operation. Product performance and productivity can be optimised, while risks and costs are reduced.
