Digital Twins and the Impact on Small and Medium Manufacturers
May 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Join Dr. Michael Grieves as he discusses how Digital Twins (DTs) are impacting engineering and manufacturing in a dramatic way by moving work from the physical world into the virtual world. Product companies are moving from physical plans, 2D build-to-print blueprints, physical prototypes, paper quality control documents accompanying shipments to 3D build to digital models, digital mock-up units (DMUs), and data-based DT Instances transmitted on a continuous basis. This will require both technology and culture changes. SMMs will need to adopt DT capabilities or perish.
