Digital Twin:  Improving Engineering and Manufacturing Productivity

DAA configures digital models and automation to eliminate manual process and improve collaboration in every PLM Engineering function.  So Engineers spend less time on manual and repetitive work, and more time collaborating. 

DAA Improves Productivity of Every PLM Engineering Function

(scroll down to learn more)

• Digital models allow faster iterations than paper and physical models 
• System-generated designs and work instructions eliminate manual work 
• Leverages your existing functions and processes - including legacy codes and applications
• Experts with Siemens, Solidworks, ARAS and other automation technology  
 

Systems Digital Twin

If its cumbersome iterating through system designs to optimize performance, DAA can help.  We configure digital models so you can quickly find the best system for your objectives.  Historic manufacturing and service data automatically feeds a System simulation model which iterates designs in hours - not weeks.  And every Engineer can easily access results in their preferred format.

Design Digital Twin

If your Design process and revisions take a long time, and are difficult to reuse and share, DAA has a solution. We automate designs so they can be iterated quickly and reused for new projects.  These digital designs and annotations are easily accessed by all Engineers, and can be converted into instructions for testing, manufacturing, and inspection.

Analysis and Simulation Digital Twin

Is Analysis and Simulation time consuming and difficult to manage?  DAA can implement automation so requirements are tested quickly and easily tied back to design.  Product design and requirements are seamlessly entered into a simulation model, which creates tests to confirm requirements.  The virtual test results are digitally traced back to requirements, and shared with upstream and downstream Engineers.

Test Digital Twin

If your Testing is time intensive, expensive, and inaccurate, DAA can lend a hand.  Our solution enables test procedures to be automatically generated based on product design, and test results are digitally traced back to requirements – even after many iterations. Design, Simulation and Test teams share the same processes and data, and Test results can be used by all teams.

Manufacturing Digital Twin

If your work and inspection instructions cause confusion, defects, and slow cycle times, DAA can help.  DAAs' solution uses product designs to automatically generate 3D interactive instructions which define how parts are manufactured, procured, installed and inspected.  And supervisors can easily deliver instructions to qualified workers via tablets or .pdf, and view sign-off when work is done.

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Platform: Connecting and Automating Engineering

DAA configures PLM platforms which provide every PLM Engineering function with a shared single source of product data, and significant Engineering automation.

• Every Engineer accesses the same requirements and product related data - while each functional discipline gets data in their required view
• Shared data, requirements, and automation enables all engineering teams to work together towards the same goals
• Data integrated with functional modules such as workflow management, requirements, planning, reporting, document control, simulation, and change management improves speed and quality
