Combining Model Based Engineering with CFMS’ other digital engineering services, including High Performance Computing (HPC) and cloud technologies, Advanced Simulation and Artificial Intelligence (AI), our integrated digital engineering team showcase the advantages that document-based systems engineering cannot provide.
In a recent project, CFMS used Model Based Engineering and design automation techniques to generate thousands of design options and a set of candidate optimal solutions for a new construction project; meaning that a process that would normally have taken months was reduced to days.
Using Model Based Engineering services, our specialists have been working with GKN Aerospace, Siemens, Sheffield University and the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) on an Innovate UK project connecting an industrial aerospace additive manufacturing cell to the CFMS data centre. Our aim is to construct a live digital twin of the cell to predict and track the manufacturing process, enabling a consistent, high quality additive manufactured part.
Digital twin technology has the potential to improve in-service performance, maintenance and repair, by providing improved efficiency through the end-to-end design process, and greater traceability diagnosing issues as they occur.
