Adding connectivity to the Digital Twin

Digital twins are digital models of products and processes that are paired to the physical world provide the basis for a wide range of new technical and commercial opportunities. Through a constant exchange and analysis of information between physical products and their digital twins, production, supply chain and maintenance processes can be better planned and automated.

Visualizing complex systems

Zuken is helping customers realize their digital twin strategies by enriching high-precision 3D CAD models with comprehensive electrical and electronic detail. Companies in the automotive and transportation sectors, in particular, are finding value in this approach.

Managing data across the whole process chain

Rich data formats require powerful authoring tools and dedicated data management solutions. With advanced authoring toolsets for electrical and electronic engineering, and a sophisticated library and data management technoloy, Zuken is well prepared to provide the full suite of tools for the whole process chain of digital system development.

Electro-mechanical product model

Built on industry standard object-oriented architecture, our solutions are fully equipped to integrate into existing PDM/PLM and ERP environments, providing a true electromechanical data model with full visibility of electrical and electronic designs down to component level.
