Siemens PLM recently held the ‘Siemens PLM Connection India 2018’. The event demonstrated the value of digitalisation from product development, validation and operations through production and how it can help manufacturers realise innovation and make critical decisions about the future of their products. The session was divided into three sections: Design, Simulation, Test; Application Lifecycle Management, Collaboration, Costing, Quality; and Digital Manufacturing, Manufacturing Operations Management. The first section covered topics such as, the integrated platform for Digital Twin and EGR Weld Optimisation through Finite Element Analysis and HEEDS tool. It also spoke about simulation of vehicle static steering rack load based on steering kinematic and tire–road contact patch sliding model. It also explored topics on incylinder combustion & vehicle emission optimisation for BS6 and thermal control of integrated communication satellite payloads for thermo-vacuum test. The second section analysed the subject of product data management and product lifecycle management in Tata motors using Siemens teamcenter. It also focused on product cost management and faster software delivery with quality using Siemens Polarion ALM. The third section talked about Digital Twin for production & production capacity planning in automotive industry using plant simulation. Furthermore, it gave an insight on digital planning of material & process flow for gear and shaft manufacturing & part complexity and dimensional management using Next-Gen AW and Vis-VSA. It discussed parts manufacturing solutions, manufacturing execution systems for Industry 4.0 and the role of advance planning and scheduling in manufacturing.
