SAP delivers live intelligent analysis enabling collaboration across supply chains
SAP has introduced SAP Predictive Engineering Insights, a cloud-based solution that creates virtual equivalents of physical assets to provide real-time, intelligent analysis based on sensor feeds. Powered by SAP Leonardo, SAP said its Predictive Engineering Insights replaces the need for physical inspections with ongoing, live “digital inspection” and analysis. It combines a standard engineering methodology for calculating forces, stresses, and fatigue based on sensor data with a high-performance 3D engine to provide visualized engineering insights. SAP claims customers can increase operational efficiency by connecting real-time engineering insights both to core business processes and to other SAP Leonardo–based asset management solutions, including SAP Predictive Maintenance and Service and SAP Asset Intelligence Network. “Smart, connected assets are driving efficiency, performance gains and business improvements in a growing number of industries today,” LNS Research fellow Dan Miklovic said. “Making all of this possible is a digital twin that ties together engineering design models, predictive and prescriptive analytics, and collaborative performance and reliability insights.
