Webinar: Using Digital Twins for Fast, Low-Risk Virtual Commissioning
As virtual models of products, digital twins have been championed as the perfect companion for diagnostics, maintenance and product innovations. However, creating a traditional digital twin is expensive, which can exclude some companies that could best be served by them.

A physics-based digital twin may make it possible to realize many of the benefits of a traditional digital twin, without some of the drawbacks.

In this webinar, you will learn how a physics-based digital twin can be used:
  • To avoid the challenges of expensive sensors, data collection and black-box behavioural algorithms.
  • For conceptual design before any physical prototype has been constructed.
  • To test integration in a virtual commissioning phase and ironing out issues otherwise found on the production floor.
