Emulation Pilot Project 8 Key Steps
We like to meet our customers, understand their problems, analyze their competence, their needs, and their expectations with the technology. We offer our experience to work together on a pilot project and support our customers all the way from the beginning to the end:
Kick off with a workshop with key project members within the customers organization. Present the capabilities and potential of emulation technology. Define potential use cases.
Define goals & key success indicators. Allocate internal resources for the project and stakeholder group. Define deadlines and timeplan.
Decide on the first use case for emulation technology. Work directly on a real case, integrated to the company’s actual workflow.
Help our customer to understand which is the technical documentation and personal competences that are required. Help identify the key internal resources and allocate additional support if necessary. Plan how the organization can build the internal competence to master the technology to be self-sufficient.
Start the development of the emulation model. Provide continuous support during the digitization process. We offer additional resource and support from a dedicated engineer charged out per hour, to help in the development, validation and implementation phases.
Evaluate if the developed model fulfills the expected functionality and if it is suitable for the use-case. Compare the model’s results against the “original” or real system Achieve “virtual confidence” and continue with the project.
Support the customers implementation of the emulation model and carrying out the expected task. For us it is crucial to make sure that the models are actually used, so the customers can see the results of and obtain the expected outcome.
#8 Future Work
Once the pilot project is finished, we analyze the results and achieve the goals. We help our customers to draw conclusions, identify potential improvements, work more effectively, find new use cases and draw a plan to finally integrate this technology into their organization.
