This year’s programme entitled “Evolving engineering simulation: The age of the digital twin” featured more than 150 speakers and 60 exhibitors and sponsors from different industry sectors and was attended by 1,000 delegates from all over the world.
Odorizzi explained, “The digital twin is a virtual model or meta-model that accurately replicates a physical asset, service or process, allowing businesses to explore various possibilities created by changes to variables and dynamics. The Gartner Group has named digital twins as one of its Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for the past two years.”
The Plenary session of the conference demonstrated how different industries are applying digital twins and other engineering simulation techniques to address product and process innovation in the move to Industry 4.0. Keynote addresses were presented by speakers from Ford Motor Company, CNH Industrial, the Kempten University of Applied Sciences, the Bruno Kessler Foundation and the University of Manchester, among others.
There was also a rich programme of technical presentations and workshops that allowed the delegates to deepen their knowledge in specific technologies, techniques and approaches, as well as round tables that discussed the business challenges posed by various aspects of Industry 4.0.
