The digital twin is a synchronized digital representation of a production system and a major aspect of the current challenges in industrial digitalization. Once considered from beginning of engineering it can be created aside the production system and can produce benefits in engineering and operations. We present a virtual engineering method that utilizes the digital twin and allows required disciplines to work already in parallel in early phases of engineering. This reduces risks in later phases but also requires more coordination, design matching, and changes traditional processes. Therefor we present a hybrid management concept based on a combination of the V-Model and agile management. The goal of the concept is to support the implementation of virtual engineering and the required change process using virtual engineering as an example of the digital transformation.
