    Digital Twin vs. Digital Thread: Untangling the Confusion in Aerospace and Defense
    The adoption of Digital Engineering is at the heart of digital transformation efforts within the global aerospace and defense industry. This transformation sees businesses and government agencies attempting to seamlessly integrate legacy, contemporary, and emerging technologies to deliver better capabilities faster and more efficiently. Two concepts dominate this industry landscape: digital twin and digital thread. The Digital Twin seeks to enable efficiencies and insights into systems by connecting the physical and virtual worlds. The Digital Thread promises to create a single source of truth for a system across its entire lifecycle. Some view these concepts as independent efforts while others do not—many have yet to form an opinion.

    In this webinar, our Aerospace and Defense Working Group chairs will:
    - Discuss the government, industry, and technological considerations for employment of these two concepts
    - Offer a perspective on the inextricable link between Digital Twin and Digital Thread initiatives, and
    - Articulate the DTC’s efforts to eliminate confusion, foster collaboration, and accelerate the adoption of Digital Twins in Aerospace and Defense and other industries
  • The Value of a Composable Digital Twin Recorded: Jun 16 2021 32 mins
    Pieter van Schalkwyk, CEO, XMPRO and Co-Chair of the Digital Twin Consortium Natural Resources Working Group
    We will see more change in the next 10 years than in the last 250. This pace of change requires agile and resilient enterprise architectures that enable multi-disciplinary teams to be highly resourceful. And it requires guardrails to protect from unnecessary risks.

    In 2020, Gartner introduced the concept of a Composable Enterprise, which enables teams that combine business and IT to compose new “fit for purpose” applications in a fraction of the time that it takes in traditional software development processes. Organizations that adopt an intelligent composable approach will outpace the competition in the speed with which they implement new features.

    The Composable Enterprise is powered by Composable Business Applications. Digital Twins, in turn, are a class of this Composable Business Applications that deliver specific high-value business capabilities in the Composable Enterprise. This webinar will investigate Composable Digital Twins and their value to the organization by looking inside:
    • Their business capability and value
    • Associated risks and rewards
    • Packaged Business Capability (PBCs), aka building blocks
    • Reference models and real-world platforms
  • Leveraging Digital Twin Technology in Healthcare and Life Sciences Recorded: Jun 2 2021 33 mins
    Co-chairs Erin Bournival, Distinguished Engineer, Dell Technologies and Koen Kas, Founder and CEO, Healthskouts
    Healthcare-related sectors, including medical devices, pharmaceutical development, hospitals and healthcare systems are becoming increasingly digital and digital twins can be applied during many phases of the lifecycle to improve production, predict problems, and improve the patient journey across the entire care along path.
    We dare to ask the question what it would take to create a digital twin for every patient tomorrow, and for every healthy citizen the day after tomorrow.
    The newly formed Healthcare and Life Sciences Working Group at Digital Twin Consortium will focus on the applicability of digital twin to all of these sectors to improve interoperability, demonstrate the value and accelerate the digital twin market.
    Working together, members of the consortium will:
    1. Determine applicability of digital twins to different stages of the lifecycle
    2. Explore commonality between different sectors within Healthcare and Life Sciences and also across other industry verticals
    3. Identify interoperability requirements across healthcare
    4. Define semantics required for digital twins within healthcare/life science industries
    5. Identify standards gaps and requirements

    Join the Digital Twin Consortium Healthcare and Life Sciences Working Group co-chairs for an overview of their mission, goals, and roadmap and how your organization can get involved to help drive the adoption of digital twin technology.

    XMPro, ABB AG, GE Aviation Digital, Dell Technologies
    Digital Twins are used for different use cases and applications across the lifecycle of assets, processes, and systems. Digital Twin lifecycle can mean different things to different stakeholders. Asset owners look at Digital Twin lifecycle as the use of the Digital Twin during the lifecycle phases of an asset, from planning, construction/manufacturing, operating, maintaining, and retiring the asset. Digital Twin creators/developers look at the Digital Twin lifecycle as the software engineering lifecycle of the actual Digital Twins. This can often leads to misunderstandings in organizations and projects on planning the Digital Twin lifecycle.

    Join our panel of experts from a broad range of industries in the discussion as we clarify the Digital Twin lifecycle and its impact.
  • Bricks and Bytes – How Data is the New Mortar in the Property Management Portfol Recorded: Dec 22 2020 23 mins
    John Turner @ Gafcon, Inc. and Salla Eckhardt @ Microsoft
    A property management portfolio is made up of physical buildings. The planning, budgeting, design, construction and operation of these physical buildings are the main challenges, but the manner in which this is performed is changing in parallel with every other business: it is going digital in order to stay competitive.

    A property management portfolio now has to be made up of physical and virtual buildings; the virtual being a digital twin of the physical and representative of the evolution of the physical through all phases in its lifecycle. Why is this important? How does it happen? Who makes it happen? What will be the impact on property portfolio managers?

    These questions, and more, will be answered in the context of Microsoft’s journey to develop a Digital Twin approach.

  • How Digital Security Twins Unlocked Transformation in Building Access Control Recorded: Dec 15 2020 29 mins
    Jon Geater @ Jitsuin and Bertrand Carlier @ WaveStone
    Apartment buildings and offices have highly permissive entrance doorways, with many more users than just a buildings’ occupants. Maintenance teams, cleaners, delivery people, emergency resimusponders and property owners need access to shared spaces, yet with more keys issued, it is harder to maintain trust in the system and prevent, detect, or deter abuse of privilege. This was always the case with mechanical and electronic locks and now internet connected door locks present new challenges and introduce cyber-physical risks. Trust is the top priority for digitally transforming door access control and – when implemented correctly – can vastly improve outcomes and enable new user experiences that could not be achieved with disconnected systems. This session will describe how distributed ledger technology can boost trust in ALL Connected Things.
