The digital twin story for smart manufacturing

By Lisa Langley

From the innovators who brought you the first NX Design Classic, our Smart Expert Solution Provider and MindSphere partner, PROLIM, is sponsoring a new event—The Digital Twin Story for smart manufacturing that focuses on the solutions Siemens Digital Industries Software offers and the value PROLIM deliver to customers. This event, while postponed, is for anyone interested in learning more about design, manufacturing, simulation, data management and electrical integrated products.

NX, Teamcenter and IoT

The Digital Twin Story event is an excellent half-day opportunity for new users and companies looking to explore what many consider to be the most advanced design software in the industry. Siemens NX CAD, CAM, Simulation, Teamcenter and electrical product experts will be accessible at this event and demonstrating the smart manufacturing solutions for design and simulation, manufacturing processes and Teamcenter data management.

Leveraging NX and Teamcenter

Siemens NX software is a flexible and powerful integrated solution that helps you deliver better products faster and more efficiently. Supporting every aspect of product development, from concept design through engineering and manufacturing, NX gives you an integrated toolset that coordinates disciplines, preserves data integrity and design intent, and streamlines the entire process. Accumulated data can be messy so need a tool like Teamcenter to help organize an actionable plan.

Teamcenter provides a single source allowing NX users to centralize their data and processes. The most current product data is made available to any users at any time, no matter where they are. The software also allows companies to be selective in what areas of the process they can work on. Restricting certain access or allowing complete access helps users know what jobs need action and the progress made for specific tasks. We find that Teamcenter’s powerful search and filtering features make it easy, fast and secure to find any data a user would need.

Leveraging the digital twin

Digital twin in smart manufacturing is more than merely a mechanical component or a 3D model of a product. The digital twin spans the whole gamut of smart manufacturing from design through manufacturing, operations, management, into commissioning and the service life. This can be a daunting undertaking for many companies hesitant to take full advantage of it.

More from the PROLIM experts

Regardless of where you are in your digital twin implementation, there are experts to help. A common topic that always comes up in conversations is NX integration with Teamcenter and why you may want to consider it. Watch the video and contact the PROLIM team to learn first-hand how they successfully help Teamcenter users expand the scope of their PLM implementation with an NX integration while leveraging Teamcenter BOM to help engineers stay organized and connected throughout a product’s lifecycle managing eBOM and mBOM data.
