Track: Engineering Analysis & Simulation

Session Number: 1163
Date: Wed, Feb 27th, 2019
Time: 10:15 AM - 11:05 AM

Description:

Systems Engineering in general, and Model-based Systems engineering in particular have become the means how businesses try to address many of their engineering challenges nowadays. To properly utilize virtual engineering, companies must be able to adopt methods and processes that enable technologies such as the Internet-of-Things (IoT), Digital Twin, etc. Systems Engineering thinking and the enablement and deployment of the latest best practices and solutions in this space are crucial for the successful development of complex systems that have become part of most products in today’s world.

Modern Systems Engineering thinking is doesn’t stop at the fence of an organization or company. Especially in our modern, connected and interactive world products begin another life once they get into service. They become part of an “Experience Ecosystem”. The Digital Twin plays a central role in such an ecosystem. With so much hype about this subject, it is time to put this better into the perspective of the overall MBSE thinking to understand what it is and how it can help address engineering challenges companies are facing in our modern world.

In this presentation we discuss and define the Digital Twin, explain the various application streams and its life cycle, its connection to innovation and business analytics platforms, and how it changes the thinking of the traditional engineering “V”. Furthermore, we will discuss how deploying Digital Twin technology can improve the engineering maturity of companies and, thus, make those more competitive. Based on the mentioned “Hype” about the Digital Twin it is also important to understand where the market actually stands in regards to realizing the Digital Twin.
