- IIoT for Smart Manufacturing part 2 – Digital Thread and Digital Twin
As it is today, many of product lifecycle processes, from design, to process planning and engineering, manufacturing are siloed because different software tools, models and data representations are used, and often by many different teams across different organizations and geographic locations. To achieve the goals of smart manufacturing, these product lifecycle processes and manufacturing functions need to be connected and integrated to increase process automation, responsiveness and efficiency, and to reduce human errors.

- Digital Twins Roadmap: From Reactive to Prescriptive MaintenanceThe Industrial Internet of Things (IoT), the Digital Twins, and the connected devices continue to enable smart equipment and increase access to data.
- Extended Reality and Digital Twins – The Future Is NowWhile the concept might seem somewhat futuristic, numerous research reports indicate that a large number of forward-thinking industrial, municipal, and other organizations are already testing aspects of extended reality technology in their operations.
- Smart Cities Sparking Innovation in Digital Twin Visualization PlatformsThe smart city presents new challenges for visualizing data in both the central operations center capacity, as well as, presenting cyber-physical networks to a predominately mobile workforce. For the centralized or remote operations control rooms, we are now seeing 3D/4D/5D digital city models and even digital twin for cities. For mobile operators, vendors are beginning to bring augmented and mixed reality capabilities for mobile workers and citizens/tourists applications.
- Digital Twin Concept Uses IIoT to Enable New Business ModelsIndustries are undergoing a digital transformation. Today, companies have access to technology and solutions that allow for a completely connected digital enterprise in terms of an end-to-end virtual lifecycle of product design, manufacturing processes, shop floor production systems, operational support and maintenance, and service in the field. This technology and solution set is typically offered by leading PLM suppliers and is often referred to as “closed-loop PLM”.
- Siemens Plots Course for the Digital Twin and Mindsphere at 2017 Analyst EventSiemens PLM held their annual analyst event for 2017 the first week in September. As far as analyst events go, this was one of their better ones, particularly in terms of content, technology, and strategic direction.
