LIVE WEBINAR: Developing digital twins to improve jet engine performances

By JayDunstan

Learn how to digitalization has an impact on the entire value chain. Hear Thierry Olbrechts and Durrell Rittenberg, aerospace industry experts at Siemens PLM Software sharing their vision for aircraft engine industry.

Ever stricter noise and emission regulations put enormous pressure on gas turbine engine makers. At the same time, energy efficiency, reliability and safety are function-critical. Overall performance, as a combination of these design criteria depends on the interaction of an ever-increasing amount of highly specialized subsystems. Both in terms of structure and process, jet engine assemblies are very complex and require the collective knowledge of multiple domain experts.

To develop aircraft engines that have the right balance between functional performance requirements, manufacturers require an engineering platform that provides an integrated view of a large set of disciplines. At the same time, they also need the most advanced tools for individual applications. The right solution will support the decision-making process by delivering deep engineering insight on all levels, from component to full system, while also facilitating data streams between specialists.
