Course Overview

About this online Course

Digitalization leads to dramatic changes: Not only are technologies changing faster and faster, but our work processes must also change in order to meet increasing demands for quality, flexibility, time-to-market and productivity. Learn how virtual engineering and the digital twin can help you meet these challenges!

This skill presents practical content based on the expert knowledge of partners like evosoft and ITQ. Learn what virtual engineering and the digital twin are and what advantages, but also challenges come along with them. Learn how the engineering process changes through virtual engineering and get to know practical examples where virtual engineering and the concept of the digital twin have been concretely applied.

Target group

This skill is aimed at users who are interested not only in the basics but also in concrete applications of virtual engineering.

Learning objectives

  • Knowing what virtual engineering is and what its advantages are.
  • Knowing what the difference is between hardware-in-the-loop and software-in-the-loop and when to use which procedure.
  • Knowing what a digital twin is.
  • Knowing about the advantages of using a digital twin.
  • Knowing about the misunderstandings and challenges that exist about digital twins.
  • Knowing how the classical engineering process is changed by virtual engineering.
  • Knowing which changes and advantages virtual engineering brings pre-commissioning.
  • Knowing about the changes and advantages Virtual Engineering brings to commissioning.
  • Knowing which changes and advantages can be achieved through virtual engineering after commissioning of a plant or machine.
  • Knowing about an example of a plant model where virtual engineering was used to develop a digital twin.
  • Knowing about the technical structure of the plant model.
  • Knowing how a digital twin is constructed by looking at the example of the evosoft plant model.
  • Knowing about the evosoft plant model’s digital twin.
  • Knowing how the digital twin is actually used for virtual engineering and how it made improvements across the engineering process possible.
