How does simulation help in mechanical engineering?
Benefiting from simulations in all stages of the automation process
Simulation is a broad term. In mechanical and plant engineering, it is used primarily in the context of computer technology and programs that are used to test engineering projects or workflows in a virtual environment before they are implemented in the real world. The goals include the optimal allocation of resources and the prevention of errors. Depending on the specific task, different tools and methods are available.
Simulate automation environments and behaviors, test virtual machine images, try out design layouts. Shorten work stages or avoid expensive failures in the real world through virtual simulations. These are just some of the possibilities where simulations can be used in the different stages of the automation process. The real-world examples below demonstrate how to utilize the advantages of simulations and minimize risk.
