I-007e Micro Webinars recently released a free, on-demand series titled “Implementing Digital Twin Best Practices From Design Through Manufacturing.” Each of the 12 segments can be viewed in about five minutes.
Have you ever wondered what digital twin is, how it's used, and its benefits? Are you interested in learning ways to optimize and streamline how data flows from design, production planning, process engineering, and manufacturing? Then this micro webinar series is for you!
Throughout this 12-part series, Jay Gorajia from Siemens Industries Software describes how to leverage the digital twin concept—from design to production planning and process engineering—through manufacturing execution and supply chain. The goal of the series is to define a blueprint for organizations seeking to digitalize and optimize their design to manufacturing processes and manufacturing operations.
In Part 5, Gorajia discusses “Managing the Digital Thread From Design to PCB Assembly Engineering.” It is generally accepted that vertically integrated organizations consider PCB assembly a disconnected part of their product realization systems and ecosystem. In truth, it is. The MCAD and mechanical systems have tightly coupled design-to-manufacturing processes. When we get into the electronics design, they seem to throw the designs over the wall, and very little insights come back. We’re here to change that.
Gorajia also explores how to integrate actual manufacturing process definitions, manufacturing outputs, and recipes into the same environment in which design data is managed. This “single point of truth” provides strong revision control, workflows, and change management governance. Most importantly, learned insights are fed back into design to drive continuous improvement throughout the product realization process.
Expert Gorajia has worked with hundreds of design and manufacturing organizations around the world, driving real improvements in cost, throughput, and quality over his 27 years in the industry. Viewers will learn how best to optimize throughput, cost, and quality as organizations embark on the digitalization journey.
The entire digital twin webinar series can be viewed in just over an hour and covers a comprehensive range of hot topics, including insights from manufacturing to improve and optimize future designs, as well as how to digitalize our factory to optimize even further.
