MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Digital Thread/Digital Twin-The 4 Stages of Successful Digital Twins

MESA Smart Manufacturing Community: Digital Thread/Digital Twin-The 4 Stages of Successful Digital Twins

Wednesday, September 14, 2022 (11:00 AM - 12:00 PM) (EDT)


Come share your experiences, stories, questions, and what you have learned in a safe, non-commercial environment. We seek to understand the state-of-the market, understand what companies have done that has or has not worked, documenting questions that MESA and the community can help answer. Overall, the goal is to accelerate each participant’s learning and progress toward Smart Manufacturing. 

Topic: The 4 Stages of Successful Digital Twins

Manufacturers are beginning to use digital twins to realize real-world benefits: predictive maintenance, agile production and AI-powered quality assurance. Yet the promise of Industry 4.0 still eludes even the most sophisticated organizations. Disparate systems and aging hardware introduce complexity early in the digital transformation journey, often resulting in kingdoms of point solutions across the enterprise. This session will introduce the concept of the Four Stages of Digital Twins, and how a foundational approach can harness manufacturing complexity to drive business outcomes. We will cover:

  • Why do most digital twin projects fail?
  • What do successful digital transformation journeys look like?
  • How can true sensor connectivity and integration be realized?
  • Do companies need to overhaul existing software & hardware investments?
  • Why is the digital twin a means rather than an end?
  • How does the digital twin translate into business outcomes?
