Getting it Right, the First Time: Using Virtual Commissioning to Reduce Cost and Right-Size Machine Components
Join us for a Webinar on September 27, 2018 at 2PM ET
As modern designs require increasingly complex features and faster delivery schedules, even the best engineers can miss important details that come to light during the uncertain stage of machine commissioning. Between reworking designs, over-engineering parts, or an unpredictable time to market, the costs and reputation damages can be significant when things don’t go smoothly. For these reasons, many are adopting a model-based approach called virtual commissioning.
As a technique, virtual commissioning stands to greatly reduce the risks inherent in many new designs. By providing a high-fidelity model of a machine’s performance, engineers can be equipped to understand the specific component requirements, which prevent the high costs of simply over-engineering parts to avoid failure. At Maplesoft, we’ve worked with leaders in the automation market to develop strategies that ensure the right-sizing of machine components.
In this webinar, you’ll gain a better understanding of virtual commissioning and see how to reduce the costs of over-engineering when designing new products.
