Corona changed our lives. So we will travel with new expectations, yet, do we? Could it be that Corona merely accelerated the need for convenience and sense of belonging?

Presentation: Digital Twin Development and Deployment – Breaking down the barriers

Digital Twin technology is breaking down old boundaries surrounding product innovation, complex lifecycles, and value creation. Essentially, helping us to understand the present in ways that have previously been out of reach, to enable us to better predict the future. With the ever-increasing speed and agility of modern computing power, combined with the cognitive abilities of AI, the possibilities could be endless. But how can your organisation take advantage of this? What exactly is a Digital Twin and how can it be applied to your organisation?

In this session we will discuss:

  • Defining the use case – Are you ready for Digital Twin deployment? Augmented Reality vs. Simulations vs. Digital Twin discussed.
  • How to determine where digital twinning can be effectively deployed in your organisation?
  • What processes and technology do you need in place for Digital Twin deployment? Strategies for determining the right toolset for your project that fits with your organisations technical maturity.
  • The benefits of combining IT and OT for your organisation.

Presentation: How to get the most Value out of Digital Transformation?

The impact of digital transformations is often not as big as originally planned. Common challenges leading to lower success rates are:

  • Solutions are technology led, not value driven
  • There is a lack of ownership and pull of the business for infrastructure, automation and IT projects
  • The benefits associated with technology projects are difficult to track and sometimes are not even measured
  • Projects defined/managed at the level of sites/BUs, without much coordination. Developing different solutions to the same problem

In this session we will discuss:

    • How to use Value Driver Trees to link digital initiatives to value
    • How to use “digital wiring” techniques to embed digital throughout the organisation for more adoption
    • How to move from a push model to a pull model with local site/ business units
