Digital twin has been touted as one of the top strategic trends in Industrial IoT. By having a living virtual model of physical assets, digital twin can be used to predict behaviors of the assets, prescribe actions, and design future versions. To achieve its potential, digital twin needs to incorporate many aspects of the assets: from design, manufacturing, sales, operation, to maintenance. Come and hear our expert panelists discuss how to get started with digital twin, its adoption path with benefits and challenges along the way, and what to expect in the next five years.
