The Digital Revolution: How Intelligent Performance Engineering Provides Closed-loop Validation

Intelligent Performance Engineering has the potential to revolutionize how manufacturing facilities operate. But as with any big change that takes place within the industry, it takes time for the value of new technology to resonate. Digitalization changes everything, but how do we best communicate these benefits to customers? 

Throughout the series, we’ve taken this deep dive into Intelligent Performance Engineering to help answer questions and curiosities about this groundbreaking technology. We’ve talked about integrated part design, simulation, the digital twin, and how these are reshaping the traditional process models. 

Joining us again today are Rahul Garg, Industry Leader for Siemens Industrial Machinery, and Giulio Camauli, Industry Solutions Manager at Siemens Digital Industries Software. As  representatives of the industrial machinery industry, they’ve really helped us understand the  Intelligent Performance Engineering Solution, and they’ve outlined the benefits manufacturers stand to gain through its implementation.

In today’s episode, we’ll close out this series by summarizing what makes Intelligence Performance Engineering so valuable to customers. We’ll also talk about how the digital twin eases the process of gathering information, share some insights around closed-loop validation, and discuss the unique ability of the digital twin to quickly respond to customer needs. 

What You'll Learn In This Episode:

  • Why closed-loop validation is important for machine builders and suppliers (1:57)
  • The complexities of data sharing from the customer perspective (3:49)
  • The benefits of using a digital twin (5:27)

How Highly-automated CAM is Helping Manufacturers Perform Better

In today’s competitive market, increasing pressure is being placed on manufacturers. Tied into that pressure is the need to expedite production and bring products to the market faster than ever before. Meeting those needs while keeping part quality at a premium hasn’t been the easiest package to deliver. That is, until highly automated CAM changed everything.Understanding the importance of efficiency in high-level manufacturing, the designers behind CAM sought to create a solution that digitized the design and manufacturing process, while connecting the various types of software from every aspect of the part-making process. It also allows companies to capture and reuse data, minimize waste, and increase overall efficiency. With CAM, manufacturers can now pivot quickly when digital threats arise.Today, we’re taking an in-depth look at highly automated CAM, or Computer-Aided Manufacturing. Here to help us understand how this technology works are Sashko Kurciski, leader of the marketing efforts for Siemens part manufacturing software portfolio, and Rahul Garg, Industry Leader for Siemens Industrial Machinery.In this episode, you’ll hear about how CAM links manufacturing, engineering, and production, resulting in better efficiency and simplified communication across the board. Sashko and Rahul will also share a couple of real-world examples of early adopters to CAM, and you’ll hear how manufacturers are differentiating themselves by taking advantage of this technology.In this episode, you will learn:A breakdown of CAM software and how it helps manufacturers (2:38)One example of a highly automated CAM solution (4:51)The shared goal of modern manufacturers (6:58)Why software connectivity is so essential (10:05)How the digital twin saves time (13:51)The role of additive manufacturing in part production (16:59)How digitalization helped a Netherlands-based manufacturer perform better (18:25)The link between automation and efficiency (20:49)Connect with Rahul Garg:LinkedInConnect with Sashko Kurciski:LinkedInConnect with Bill Butcher:LinkedIn

How Integrated Systems Are Easing the Customization Process for Manufacturers

Manufacturing technology is full of moving parts. From design to simulation and ultimately production, physical changes to any part of the process can be costly. How can businesses keep up with those changes in a world where frequent customization has become the new norm?The answer is simple: integration. When part design and simulation are integrated, designers and engineers can work together seamlessly. Proposed changes in design can be simulated using simple drag and drop tools. This integrated approach has the capacity to streamline a process that would otherwise be inefficient and profoundly cost-prohibitive.Joining us again today are Rahul Garg, Industry Leader for Siemens Industrial Machinery, and Giulio Camauli, Industry Solutions Manager at Siemens Digital Industries Software. Their expertise as representatives of the industrial machinery industry will help us to better understand the ins and outs of the Intelligent Performance Engineering Solution from Siemens Digital Industries Software.In today’s episode, we’ll talk about the advantages of integrated part design and simulation, how this is benefitting manufacturers, and where the digital twin fits into the equation. We’ll also share a few examples of how companies are successfully applying these integrated systems in ways that weren’t possible with the traditional process model.What You'll Learn In This Episode:The challenges that machine builders are facing where the multiphysics simulation approach comes in handy. (01:43)Why it’s useful to pre-assess any new design modifications and what it entails. (02:50)The importance of implementing the integrated design and manufacturing process. (04:22)Why the digital twin is unique in the context of Intelligence Performance Engineering (06:46)The benefits the manufacturers can achieve by incorporating integrated design and simulation into their manufacturing process.
