Digital Twin: The Key Enabler for Industry 4.0 Systems

Meeting Description:
Digital Twin is marked by Gartner as one of today’s technology trends. Although many use cases based on Digital Twin have emerged, still there is no clear consensus of what Digital Twin is, what are its value propositions for new Industry 4.0 use cases, what are its architectural, interoperability and security aspects, etc. This webinar provides a brief answer to these questions from IIC perspective. The core concepts are complemented by a real example of Digital Twin, which  offers a single repository for asset-centric models, hierarchies, objects, and equipment to be used for further analysis of data from multiple sources.
