Spotlight on the Digital Twin

Engineering simulation is a key component of one of the most exciting developments in product engineering: the rise of the digital twin. By studying the digital twin, engineers can determine the root cause of performance problems, schedule predictive maintenance, evaluate different control strategies and otherwise work to optimize product performance — and minimize operating expenses — in near real times. This issue also includes articles from industry leaders that leverage digital prototyping and digital exploration to improve their products, reduce time to market and gain insight that would otherwise be impossible to obtain.
