Consumers today want smart products, tailored to personal needs, preferences and habits. To satisfy these needs, manufacturers have to come up with increasingly complex designs that combine mechanics with electronics, software and controls. At the same time, the industry mandate for energy efficiency persists.

All these new challenges require engineering departments to deal with more parameters, data and product variations in less time. To be successful, their traditional verification and validation process will need to evolve into a more predictive approach that truly drives systems-driven product development, and closes the loop with the product in use.

Forward looking companies across different industries are leveraging digital twins to speed up product development. Siemens PLM Software provides solutions that help our customers build, manage, and utilize holistic digital twins, spanning activities in product design, manufacturing, and in-service performance. Our Simcenter™ portfolio consists of proven solutions that companies use to develop digital twins for performance engineering. These digital twins have the realism necessary to capture the complexities arising from different types of physics—such as structural, thermal, flow, motion, electromagnetic, and multiphysics scenarios. In addition, Simcenter provides solutions to maintain a digital thread for performance requirements, attributes, parameters, and results. This enables companies to maintain full traceability and close the loop from requirements to actual performance. Simcenter also includes leading solutions that enable our customers to explore the design space efficiently and arrive at better designs faster.

In summary, the Simcenter solutions portfolio uniquely combines systems simulation, 3D computer-aided engineering (CAE), and test to help you build digital twins that predict performance across all critical attributes earlier. By combining physics-based simulations with insights gained from data analytics, Simcenter helps you optimize design and engineer innovations faster and with greater confidence.
