Why use modeling?

Modeling involves implementing a mathematical representation of a reality allowing us to understand how it works. On the other hand, simulation is about taking these models, solving them, and visualizing them in a particular software and computer model that describes the essential part of the behavior of the process or system of interest over time. 

The combination of both allows us to speed up decision-making. This way, companies can make decisions faster than through experimental processes, avoiding extra costs. In addition, it reduces the risk to operators and the environmental impact.

Nowadays, modeling and simulation are related to creating a digital twin of a specific process or system.


What is a digital twin?

A digital twin is a virtual model of a physical system that uses real-time data and simulation to replicate its behavior and characteristics. When applied to an industrial process, it provides a powerful tool for studying and improving it in several ways:

It can simulate the behavior of a process, enabling engineers to test different scenarios and optimize them for better performance. This means potential problems can be identified and resolved before they occur.

It can monitor and analyze data in real-time, providing insight into the system's performance. This enables us to identify areas where improvements can be made, such as reducing energy consumption, increasing efficiency, or improving safety.

It can be used to train and educate operators, providing a virtual environment for them to practice and learn without the risk of actual equipment damage or injury.

By using a digital twin, you can optimize and streamline processes and reduce costs, all while gaining valuable insights into how the system behaves in different scenarios.
