Control's monthly guide brings you invaluable industry information to stay up to date on the latest trends and developments.

Digital flowmeter twin

The seven-page article, "Electromagnetic digital flowmeter twin," by Subhashish Dasgupta and Vinay Kariwala in ABB Review, Feb. '18, p. 58, shows how digital twin software and finite element analysis (FEA) can model and optimize the design and performance of ABB's electromagnetic flowmeter by replicating field conditions. 


Design, manufacture video

This 24-minute video, "Siemens PLM—the real value of the  digital twin," includes a presentation by Aaron Frankel, product marketing director, Manufacturing Engineering Software, Siemens, who shows viewers how they can overcome conventions in design and manufacturing by using digital twins. 


Ready to replica?

The 20-page whitepaper, "Is your organization ready to embrace a digital twin?" from Cognizant, covers organizational readiness, building blocks and best practices. 


Shipboard simulation

An 18-page slide deck, "Implementing FPSO digital twins in the field," presented by David Hartell of Premier Oil at a recent Future Oil & Gas event, demonstrates how a digital twin can be used to design a floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel, conduct subsurface modeling, perform pre-operations tasks, and optimize operations.
