Session Description

It’s been 20 years since the concept of Digital Twins was introduced by Michael Grieves in a presentation given at the University of Michigan. Although, the technology in principle has been practiced since the 1960’s and most famously used by NASA in 1970 with the launch of Apollo 13, allowing on the ground engineers to test solutions to issues that occurred during that near-fatal trip. However, it has not been until the last 5 years that the use of Digital Twins has evolved to be a strategic decision in businesses technology plans. As the Internet of Things has grown, it has enabled Digital Twins to be more cost effective, providing enormous advantages to help improve efficiency, planning and testing within organizations. This session will examine the growing relationship between the physical and digital worlds, and how businesses can utilize this concept for the future.
