Enabling the Digital Twin
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.

Digital Twin, Digital Thread, PLM and MBSE - the buzzwords are following each other in ever faster succession, making it difficult to keep an overview. Oliver Hechtl, Head of Strategic DM/& I Solutions at Zuken GmbH, took a closer look at the various topics from a practitioner's point of view to bring some order to the web of topics.
This webinar will discuss the challenges and best practices of creating a MBSE model for the purpose of wire harness and Electronic Control Units (ECU’s) implementation.
Recent Digital Twin Blog Posts
As engineers face increasing complexity across electronics and electrical systems, they need a single set of related data to offer insights into the product’s various processes and functions. Simply stated, they need a digital thread for electrical systems.
In the light of recent digitisation initiatives, circuit documentation has also come up for discussion. Specifically, the question arose as to whether or not a separation between circuit definition and visualization would make sense. In other words: wouldn't it be a great idea to store electrical data as a digital model, and to display it in a way that is suitable for each target group?
Manufacturing wants to leap into the world of the Jetsons. But there is one small problem: every time leadership consults a compass, it shows a different way forward. At first, there was digital automation, which was soon replaced by digitization. Then ...

You may have heard about Zuken’s recent acquisition of a Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) company called Vitech Corporation. Yes, Vitech has an MBSE product called GENESYS, but first and foremost, they are a Systems Engineering company. Let’s take a look at Zuken’s leap into digital engineering and MBSE to understand the WHY.
What exactly is a digital twin? It is a simulated model of an actual working product in the field...
