Simulation Software for Real Virtual Engineering
What is simulation software?
Simulation software is a tool that makes it possible to virtually simulate and analyze a specific system or process. Different parameters and input are simulated to make predictions about how a system of a machine or plant will act.
In industry, this software is often used for product planning and, with a digital twin, it can be used to monitor running machines. In product planning, engineers can create a virtual model to test the behavior of a planned plant or machine with different components under different conditions, all before it is actually built. For example, you can simulate the behavior of a machine in various situations, or analyze the how new plant will perform under different conditions.

How simulation software is used
When monitoring running machines, simulation software can help detect and prevent problems early on. By continuously collecting real-time data, engineers can constantly simulate how a machine will perform and can predict, for instance, when a part will need to be replaced (predictive maintenance) before it malfunctions. They can also evaluate the potential impact on a system by simulating different scenarios, such as overload or a broken component.
Overall, simulation software offers an effective way to analyze and optimize complex systems without having to run expensive and time-consuming physical tests, thus helping to find the optimal solution.

Simulation software in sales and marketing
Persuade new customers right from the start with images and videos of the machine they are planning. Simulation models are particularly helpful to sales and marketing, as product performance can be assessed using realistic images and videos even before it is purchased. Every single component can be viewed from all angles with the help of 3D systems, and the customer can get a precise look at every area of the model. These early results show the desired solutions and provide all the information a potential customer needs to make their decision

What are the benefits of simulation software?
Using software to visualize and model simulations offers numerous benefits including:
- Cost efficiency: Simulation software can help reduce the cost of physical testing and prototyping. Virtual testing based on this analysis can be done faster and more cost-effectively.
- Time savings: Virtual commissioning can be done in a fraction of the time needed for actual commissioning without simulation, which also accelerates the product development process. Any problems discovered can be quickly and easily avoided and taken into account in further planning. The results of the simulation and the prediction of machine behavior are available to the user at any time and can be used to select components and for further production and calculations.
- Risk mitigation: Conducting virtual tests can help identify potential risks and correct them early on, before the system is put to use in the real environment. This can reduce costs and risks associated with fixing errors and problems in later development phases. Supporting teams with better quality from the outset is also a benefit.
- Flexibility: Simulation software allows for virtual simulation of scenarios and conditions that would be difficult or even impossible to replicate in the real world. The manufacturers and suppliers of the systems are thus able to adapt the development and design of their products.
- Improved decision making: Simulation software can help companies make better decisions by allowing them to test different options and features virtually, and evaluate the impact on products before making a final decision. This early validation of results ensures that planned models are comprehensively analyzed. Thanks to 3D models, future users can be brought on board at the beginning of development. The planned products are developed using the analysis, and the optimal production and development solution can be found, taking profitability into account.
- Scalability: Simulation software can be applied to various systems and processes, making it a scalable tool and versatile solution for different industries and applications.
Eine Simulationssoftware ermöglicht es, verschiedene Szenarien und Bedingungen virtuell zu simulieren, die in der realen Welt möglicherweise schwer oder unmöglich zu replizieren wären. Die Hersteller und Anbieter der Anlagen sind so in der Lage, die Entwicklung und das Design ihrer Produkte an die Modelle anzupassen.
- Verbesserte Entscheidungsfindung
Eine Software für die Modellerstellung durch Simulation kann dazu beitragen, bessere Entscheidungen zu treffen, da verschiedene Optionen und Funktionen virtuell getestet und deren Auswirkungen auf die Produkte bewertet werden können, bevor eine finale Entscheidung auf Basis der Daten getroffen wird. Diese frühzeitige Validierung der Ergebnisse sorgt für eine umfassende Analyse der geplanten Modelle. Die späteren Anwender können dank der 3D Modelle direkt zu Beginn der Entwicklung mit an Bord geholt werden. Die geplanten Produkte werden anhand von Analysen des Tools entwickelt und schließlich die optimale Lösung für die Fertigung und Entwicklung unter Berücksichtigung der Wirtschaftlichkeit getroffen.
Simulationssoftware kann auf verschiedene Systeme und Prozesse angewendet werden, was sie zu einem skalierbaren Tool und einer vielseitigen Lösung für verschiedene Branchen und Anwendungen macht.
