Ford increases production speed and decision-making efficiency through digital twin technology

April 02, 2019 | Case Study

Optimizing manufacturing processes in advance of implementation is a key target of discrete manufacturers. For example, automotive manufacturers have long been focused on scaling process optimization to reduce costs by increasing production speed and efficiency. Process simulation using digital twin software is a growing method for achieving such results. For example, Ford's Powertrain Manufacturing Engineering (PTME) department has been using a digital twin solution from Lanner to increase productivity in the production of powertrains through predictive analytics. In addition to pioneering digital twin technology, Ford is also optimizing the speed of simulation creation to magnify the benefits of the approach in engineering designs.
