As product complexity grows, so does the challenge of integrating individual components within a system to ensure they work together as expected. Systems modeling, simulation and validation allow you to create a complete digital prototype to understand and optimize the critical interactions between physics, controls and the environment throughout the product development process. And, by combining systems modeling with sensors and big data, you can develop a digital twin to manage your product’s performance and maintenance after it has been deployed.
3D physics, embedded software and systems simulation
With ANSYS solutions for systems, you can build complete systems and digital twins. We offer the most advanced technologies for 3D physics simulation, embedded systems and software design. You can also assemble these different components into complete digital twins of software-controlled, multidomain systems that can be used throughout the whole product lifecycle — from the initial concept to product operation.
Assess software, electronics and hardware designs together
For intelligent devices, the combination of software, electronics and hardware design challenges significantly increases the complexity of the product architecture and expands the scope of the engineering design. Intelligent, interconnected products have thousands of unique requirements that are served by a multiplicity of components, each with thousands of design parameters and interfaces that must be engineered, verified and validated.
Validate and optimize product design, operations and service
Systems simulation informs design choices, provides insight and validates systems-level characteristics, function, behavior and performance. It goes beyond the design of individual parts and accurately captures the effects of interactions between these parts. Systems simulation also extends through testing and into the product operation phase to allow for predictive maintenance and optimal management of complex and expensive assets.
