Simulation Methodologies

A key competency that makes you stronger

Why simulation methodology is inseparable from digital transformation, and what challenges the increased use of simulation holds for you.

The impact of simulation on added value

From manufacturing to the insurance industry – simulation methodologies are so versatile that they have been used successfully in business for years, even decades.

Businesses employ simulation to pose “what if” questions that can accelerate and safeguard their value-adding processes: What happens if processes are organized differently, if raw materials prices rise, if a component is given a new surface coating, or if two collaborating robots are used instead of one?

Within the context of digitalization, the application of simulation methodologies is growing ever more important. Read any article on digital transformation and you will almost certainly be confronted with the topic.

Why is that?

For one, it’s due to a happy correlation: As computing power keeps growing, it’s also becoming more available regardless of location – thanks to secure cloud applications and 5G. One might say that it’s becoming cheaper to know more. The economy of scale permits more sophisticated calculation and visualization.

To grasp the strategic crux of the issue, it helps to recall the key value proposition of digitalization: Agility, the ability to manage greater levels of complexity, and (part-)automated, software-based processes that permit continual improvement.

Making more simulation a reality

To attain these qualities – quick adaptability, high complexity competence, reliable forecasting – you need simulation as a virtual testing ground that lets you try things out and then verify and optimize them, without interrupting your live processes. This testing ground is known as the digital twin.

What should you do now?

  • Exploit digitalization by harnessing the many capabilities of simulation to make your value chain faster and more reliable.
  • Rely on a future-proof IT infrastructure that lets you implement an end-to-end concept – an IT infrastructure that will support your value chain today and throughout the decades to come.
  • Create a corporate ethic that sustains and promotes technological change. Get people excited about your project, secure the support of all stakeholders, and network your business units.
  • Stay on this path and integrate more and more processes into your digital twin.
