Simulation for the Digital Twin Ecosystem - Article - ANSYS Advantage - V11 I1
To fully understand a machine during operation requires connecting the full-featured virtual model to actual operational data from the machine; the virtual model is then called a digital twin. Simulation is a valuable tool for companies creating digital twins, as it allows them to accurately predict how the machine might perform and how changes will affect it during its lifetime. ANSYS has a full suite of tools to enable a digital twin to deliver accurate, insightful and reliable results that can have a real impact on operation — improving output, decreasing downtime and extending longevity. By understanding real-world product behavior using simulation, the next-generation product can be significantly improved while reducing its time to market.
