ULTRA-condensed knowledge


"g-f" fishing of golden knowledge (GK) of the fabulous treasure of the digital age, Digital transformation (9/9/2021)  g-f(2)426 

Opportunity, Simulation Enables Digital Transformation, HBR, Ansys
  • Mining, understanding, and applying data to meet evolving customer needs is the most significant digital transformation challenge faced by businesses in every sector. To meet that challenge, businesses are trying to make sense of the information they are collecting to better inform decisions as they compete to get the best products to market faster. 
  • Simulation helps businesses meet those goals by enabling them to accurately predict and visualize what will happen in a given environment—in an automobile, an industrial plant, or even a person—under a certain set of circumstances.
Opportunity, Companies from every industry have made simulation a key part of their digital transformation efforts, HBR, Ansys
  • It enables them to optimize product design and development, ensure system components interact seamlessly, and bring innovations to market faster—all without the expense of building and testing multiple prototypes. 
    Opportunity, Successful case 1: thyssenkrupp Presta, HBR, Ansys
    • A first-tier original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier for the automotive industry, thyssenkrupp Presta AG, reached a targeted 50% weight-reduction goal. The company achieved this by replacing metal housing for a servo-assisted steering system with an injection-molded housing made of short-fiber reinforced glass-fiber composite. 
    • Using simulation solutions gave thyssenkrupp Presta confidence in the plastic housing design before its actual manufacturing. The adoption of an innovative and lightweight plastic housing for its steering system supports both the ecological and the economic goals of the company.
    Opportunity, Successful case 2: ENGIE, Inside Sources
    • Digital twins can be connected to IIoT platforms, enabling remote predictive maintenance of physical equipment to extend digital transformation initiatives to the edge of the enterprise.
    • ENGIE, one of the world’s leading suppliers of energy efficiency services, is helping companies transition to carbon-free energy by employing digital-twin simulation solutions.
    • “This real-time technology allows us to observe and predict the behavior of our installation, and thus test strategies for the operation of the equipment by implementing, testing, and validating different scenarios instantly on the digital twin before deployment on the equipment,” said Nicolas Meynet, multiphysics simulation expert at ENGIE Lab CRIGEN. “The customer can better understand, anticipate, and validate the proper functioning of his [or her] installation by virtually testing the changes on the equipment.”

      Opportunity, Accurate predictions and visualization are powerful forces in digital transformation, HBR, Ansys
      • Simulation allows companies to see how new data affects a design, even if those changes are invisible to the naked eye, such as thermal flows around a printed circuit board, electromagnetic interference from lightning striking an aircraft, or the sun’s reflection off a LiDAR camera lens that hasn’t yet been built. Those visuals are both invaluable for collaboration and for exploring “what if” scenarios that lead to innovative designs.
      Opportunity, Simulation Speeds System Design and Development, HBR, Ansys
      • Whether using a new, lighter material to design a more fuel-efficient plane, modeling a battery pack in an autonomous vehicle, or designing an integrated circuit in a cell phone, simulation speeds product design and development by minimizing or avoiding the time and expenses associated with old design-build-test cycles that require multiple physical prototypes.
