ANSYS is an American simulation software company founded in 1970. In the latest version, ANSYS 19.1, the developers have integrated a feature that allows customers to build a digital twin in a single workflow and an intuitive user interface. In this way, they are supposed to be able to save costs and launch their products on the market faster.
According to ANSYS, the solution can be integrated into any Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and includes functions that convert all products that are to be monitored during operation, such as cars, turbines or machinery, into a digital twin. In this way, users of the ANSYS Twin Builder will not only quickly fix bugs, but also identify the ideal maintenance programs, optimize the performance of each asset, and generate data to improve the next generation of products. According to ANSYS, the Twin Builder is currently the only solution for the complete, simulation-based generation of digital twins on the market.
