DATE: Thursday, May 14, 2020
TIME: 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT

Digital Twins have been promoted as the ideal vehicle for predictive maintenance. In principle, the virtual replicas of products can collect data and reveal historical patterns that lead to better diagnostic capability.

But does this work in real life? Do early adopters get lost in the Big Data?

Our panelists will discuss:

  • How CAD and simulation fit into digital twin strategies;
  • How to avoid the pitfalls of Big Data with collected real-time data;
  • What you can and cannot expect to accomplish with digital twins.

Our presentation will be followed by a LIVE Q&A session.
