Virtualization, visualization and simulation are key building blocks for digital threads and twins of products and processes. That is because OEMs tend to have fragmented internal organizations with few branches of management that take a holistic view of how to apply technology or innovation across the enterprise. As a result, this makes maintaining digital threads and digital twins from design through production to final products more complicated, especially in the automotive industry. In automotive, it is best to build or partner with a vendor that builds production simulation technology. Considering the cost of test vehicles and the demand for ROI, production simulation tools can prove extremely valuable in demonstrating the benefits of new technologies in production processes, identifying bottlenecks, meeting health and safety standards, and achieving first-time-right production. Most clients will still want to go through physical test runs, but simulation technology can reduce the failures of those test runs.
