Andrew Borland, Industrial Engagement Manager with the Virtual Engineering Centre, explains how digital technologies such as advanced modelling, simulation and visualisation can revolutionise communication between company and client to deliver competitive edge and drive growth.

Digital engineering technologies are expanding the boundaries for business, enabling manufacturers to make a paradigm shift in their product development and manufacturing processes and enhance their commercial offer.

Those which have embedded advanced technologies into their long-term business strategy have seen production times sped up, risk reduced, efficiency enhanced, and operational costs cut.

The potential impact is significant – The Made Smarter Review estimates that digital adoption could lead to a 25 percent increase in productivity for UK industry – but the benefits are not purely operational. Improved client relations are another key factor to consider.

Advanced modelling, simulation and visualisation have the potential to revolutionise the traditional 2D design approach, creating virtual tools which allow a customer not just to see their product in the making, but to experience and influence the process at multiple stages. This serves to close the gap between both customer and product, and company and client.
