Successfully held VDI-conference "The Role of Digital Twins in Industrial Value Creation"

On October 23 and 24, 2023, VDI Wissensforum organized the 2nd VDI Expert Conference on "The Role of Digital Twins in Industrial Value Creation"  in Leinfelden-Echterdingen near Stuttgart under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Rainer Stark.

The conference addressed questions such as "What constitutes Digital Twins?", "How can the value creation potential of Digital Twins be exploited?", "What is the role of standards like the management shell?" or "What does a future with Metaverse look like?" Experts from diverse industries presented their knowledge and shared their experiences in engaging presentations and lively discussions.

Following the conference, the IIT department hosted a special day dedicated to "The Development of Digital Twins - From Theory to Practice". During this event, participants gained insight into the process of developing digital twins. They also discussed the opportunities, challenges and risks associated with digital twins. Finally, the attendees collaborated in small groups to create their own digital twin models and were introduced to a digital twin demonstrator of a trunk lid.

Currently, the program of the 3rd conference is being developed, which will be held in Nürtingen on November 5-6, 2024.
