Maple is a mathematical software that makes analyzing, investigating, visualizing and solving mathematical problems very easy with its powerful mathematical engine. With MapleSim, the functionality of Maple is extended to the area of modeling. Digital twins can be created with imported CAD data or via block diagrams. Using the B&R Automation Studio FMU Generator, models from MapleSoft can be integrated in Automation Studio.
