  • Digital Twins and the Metaverse for Manufacturing Inspection & Collaboration Recorded: Oct 20 2021 36 mins
    Mike Taylor, Duality; Steve Varga, Procter & Gamble; Mark Collins, Epic Games.
    Today, consumer products are produced at unprecedented scale. They use hyper-efficient, exceedingly complex assembly processes and hundreds of material transformations. While these advances in manufacturing have increased the richness of our lives, they have also increased the complexity of the design and development process. As a result, the cost of testing has increased -- along with the cost of mistakes.

    Fortunately, the precision delivered by the digital twin metaverse offers an avenue for engineers and designers to evaluate their final product and to understand the product state at intermediate manufacturing steps. Thanks to digital twins, teams can now look at virtual assembly lines and understand if the latest product design rev will work, given the current manufacturing layout, instrumentation setup, and QA procedures. All without the costs associated with physical testing and trial runs.

    In this Digital Twin Consortium webinar, we will evaluate the current state of digital twins and their potential in manufacturing. Join our panelists as they lead an in-depth discussion on digital twins and synthetic data for manufacturing inspection and collaboration.

  • 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
