To successfully develop simulations for virtual commissioning, two core technology enablers are required. The first is the software application that builds and runs the simulation. The second is a library of the virtual components required to build the models. This post examines the importance of the component library.
There are three megatrends changing product development solutions today: “platformification”, movement to the cloud, and artificial intelligence/machine learning. In this video, Chad Jackson describes each megatrend and shares examples of how each is being implemented in the industry today.
