Ever shorter innovation cycles, coupled with ever greater individualization of products, require new, more efficient processes, materials and technologies.
In the future, modern production systems will have significantly higher flexibility and greater functionality, while maintaining consistently high product quality and system availability. These requirements will lead to a significant increase in the complexity of the development process.
In order to be able to master the increasingly complex development processes in the future, the use of simulation-based tools is being promoted. Simulation enables decision-relevant investigations long before the plant is realized. Planning variants can be evaluated, information on subsequent performance and availability can be obtained, risk factors can be identified and the plant can be virtually commissioned, to name just a few examples.
