When we think of the future, technology is the first thing that comes to mind.
Technology is everywhere; where there is a battery or some source of electrical power, there is a significant amount of technology involved. Behind every kind of technology there are also engineers.
Mechanical, electrical, and electronic design domains are all taken into consideration when creating the products that the end consumer puts a demand on. Whether it be a child’s toy, a cell phone, boat, or automobile, an electromechanical engineer; someone, somewhere, was responsible for bringing the features and technological capabilities successfully to market.
This is where a digital twin, regardless of the design discipline comes in handy; A virtual representation of the end product that accurately represents what it will look like but more importantly how it will function. This is increasingly important when it comes to the growing amount of elements to keep track of, from an electromechanical design stand point.
Around 50% of all complex products require at least one additional design iteration just to address issues caused by inconsistencies across mechanical, electrical, and electronic design domains. With efficiency being a top concern for companies and their end users, an electromechanical design advantage could be a deciding factor for success now and for years to come…
