Engaging With The TMI

The TMI provides access to training in the use of the latest Product Lifecycle Management and Simulation software, enabling the development of 'digital twins' that support design, visualisation and testing in a virtual environment. Digital twins are the foundation for 'virtual commissioning', a process that greatly mitigates risk prior to physical production. A range of visualisation platforms will be available to support engagement in this process.
