The Equipment Supplier’s Guide to Profitable RFQ Processes

This survey-based research report shares responses from 135 suppliers and buyers involved in RFQ processes. It provides fact-based guidance on RFQ strategies and tactics. It also clears up many misconceptions and offers insights into buyers’ priorities. Suppliers can use this as a map for profitable growth.

The Blurring Line between Virtual Commissioning and Digital Twins

The lines are blurring between virtual commissioning and digital twins. In this article, we’ll discuss each of these simulation techniques, when and how they are implemented and the impact of virtual commissioning and digital twin’s on today’s production systems.

MBSE and Virtual Commissioning: Do the Two Intersect?

The engineers who design production systems are not strangers to complexity. This raises the question: Can systems engineering be applied to the development of production systems? Let’s explore how, by discussing systems engineering and model-based system engineering.

The Digital Thread: Is It Applicable to Virtual Commissioning?

Digitization is complicated. In this post, we’ll explain and examine the emerging Digital Thread concept, investigate where the Digital Thread intersects virtual commissioning, the impact this concept has on organizations, and the opportunities a Digital Thread can bring to businesses.

Making the Case: MBSE versus Spreadsheets and Documents

While the set of practices called systems engineering are a boon to cross-disciplinary collaboration, technology has been slow to catch up. Without a new way to collaborate, engineers use tools familiar to them—spreadsheets and documents. But they no longer need to rely on those outdated tools.

The Four Benefits of Simulation-Driven Design

The challenge of manipulating designs to achieve performance goals and produce innovative products has become more daunting. Engineers must work with increasingly complicated requirements. Nevertheless, some approaches offer hope. Simulation-driven design is one of them. This report presents the business benefits of taking a simulation-driven design approach, enabled by engineers, across the design cycle.

Realizing Simulation’s Full Value Through Easy, Rich, Interactive Results

Simulation-driven design enables better design decisions and reduces development costs. Yet, many fail to realize the real business value of simulation due to technology shortcomings. This eBook discusses shortcomings up the typical approach and recommendations to overcome those challenges.

Building Solutions to Fill Your Functionality Gaps in Your End-to-End Process

Does your application architecture include the use of multiple disconnected solutions to fill functionality “gaps” across your end-to-end process? Each does an important job.  Few can be eliminated.  Join us for a webinar on the new future for building custom applications quickly and strategically giving users the customer functionality they need.

Simulation-driven design: Is it right for your size company?

Designing the next generation of smart, connected products is no easy task. Company owners are asking engineers at small to mid-sized companies to work against ever-shortening schedules. Requirements are more stringent and sometimes conflicting. Budgets are tight, with little to no flexibility. There are many technology-led initiatives to help engineers succeed, and none are more achievable than simulation-driven product design.
