Abstract
This chapter describes research into physics-based real-time
simulation from a business perspective and provides guidance for further
studies. Despite the increasing amount of research into
simulator-driven design and production, little progress has been made
towards understanding the complexities of its implementation, its effect
on business models, and how it can best be applied to create value for
the customer. There seems to be agreement in the literature that this
type of digital transformation of industry is beneficial, but many of
the business issues remain unclear. The following paragraphs seek to
encourage a new way of looking at real-time simulation studies. The
chapter concludes with an illustration of sustainable value creation
using real-time simulation and digital twinning and a number of concrete
suggestions for questions that should be answered in future research.
