Meet the challenges of Industry 4.0


To rise to the challenges of Industry 4.0, complex systems are designed with the use of digital models throughout their life cycle. The Digital Engineering approach enables the structured application of the Digital Twin, a virtual replication of physical resources, the Digital Thread, a data set that feeds processes through physical and digital interaction, and the Model-Based System Engineering methodology, i.e. a set of processes and methods that support the definition of requirements, design, development, verification and validation, from conceptual design to production.



What are the benefits of Digital Engineering in Industry 4.0?

Optimize your costs, time, staff and processes in the design, maintenance and life cycle management of complex products.

Accelerate the entire design process and perform tests and simulations that would be difficult to carry out on a physical prototype.

Gain speed in testing different solutions, changing shapes and materials; consider alternative structures using digital models of the product.

How do you enable a Digital Engineering approach?

Using a set of tools, processes and roles, the Digital Engineering approach makes it possible to design, manage and maintain the life cycle of complex systems and products.


We help companies identify their own approach to Digital Engineering through the application of our Maturity Model.


We support companies in assessing their level of digital continuity through all stages, from design to production and, finally, to product support.


Through an analysis conducted together, we help companies understand the reasons behind their digital maturity level and we generate relevant insights and possible lines of action.
