Digital Twins Design & Operations (DTD&O)in a nutshell

As industries continue to evolve and become more complex, it is becoming increasingly important to leverage advanced technologies and tools to optimize operations. Digital twins, which are virtual replicas of physical systems or functional processes, offer a powerful solution to this challenge, enabling industries to simulate, monitor, and optimize their processes in real-time. By combining digital twins with systemic thinking, a holistic approach to problem-solving that takes into account the interconnectedness of all system components, industries can gain deeper insights into their operations and optimize them for maximum efficiency and productivity.

At our forum specifically focused on digital twins and systemic thinking in industry, participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn from leading experts in digital twins, systemic thinking, industrial product and processes modeling & simulation, and enterprise architecture approach.
  • Discover the latest tools and technologies for industrial process strategic planning & operational optimization.
  • Network with industry professionals and researchers.
  • Explore papers, case studies and real-world applications of digital twins, industrial product and processes modeling & simulation.

A one-day event exploring the latest innovations in digital twin for industrial processes strategic planning & operational optimization.
