Using VR and AR for Virtual Commissioning

Virtual reality and augmented reality are used in a variety of industrial settings, allowing manufacturers to visualize entities either in a virtual environment or the real world. Engineers can demonstrate a machine’s design and operation using VR. VR and AR can benefit the world of manufacturing, but throw virtual commissioning into the mix, and an entirely new world of possibilities presents itself.

Systems Engineering Enables Traceability for Electrical and Electronic Design

Systems engineering practices help organizations mitigate and manage product complexity. When applied to electronics and electrical systems, systems engineering takes on a whole new meaning. Using this approach, teams break down a product’s requirements and functions with a high degree of granularity and allocate them to functions, logical architectures, and physical items. In doing so, they gain traceability that enables them to explore the impact of any design changes on requirements and make the best decisions possible.

This post explores some of the different areas where systems engineering makes a difference and how systems engineering enables traceability.

Understanding The Smart Factory Initiative

The Internet of Things (IoT) is everywhere. Products are undergoing a period of mass digitalization, with physical devices increasingly connecting to the online world and gathering and sharing data to help people optimize their daily lives. This post highlights some of these smart factory initiatives and explains the impact they have across a factory floor.

How to Get Started with Virtual Commissioning

The value-added benefits are clear. But many organizations don’t know where to start when it comes to virtual commissioning. The implementation process is complex; it’s more than downloading a piece of software and expecting staff to master it immediately. Reaping the full rewards of virtual commissioning requires a measured and staged approach.

Using Simulation-Driven Design to Power Digital Engineering

Customer demands and marketplace competition are placing engineers under mounting time pressures. An organization’s development schedules must shorten to keep pace with the industry and the wider market. Many established digital tools are now available to accelerate development lifecycles. Simulation is one of them.

Digital Transformation for Product Development

As the capabilities of computers and networks increase, new and better ways to work keep appearing. Change is no longer an occasional disruptive event; it is a constant operational imperative. Digital transformation for product development is more than a path—it is a rewrite of engineering and corporate DNA.

The foundation of digital transformation is the use of a single source of truth that is digital and holistic, encompassing every part of the product development process.

What is Esteco modeFRONTIER and VOLTA?

Let’s talk about Esteco and their products. There are two main products, modeFRONTIER and VOLTA. They serve different purposes, but basically they’re both all about simulation automation and simulation data management.
