9:20 am - 9:40 am Case Study: Understanding And Enabling A Digital Twin

Jesper Toubøl - Vice President, Elements & Moulds, LEGO Group
Digital Twins – virtual models of complicated physical assets or processes - are at the forefront of innovative technologies that can drive operational visibility, data-driven decision-making and improved business outcomes. However, a lot of manufacturing leaders are still trying to get a full grasp of the digital twin concept, its functionality and applicability specifically to their operations.  This session will help you find the answers to the following challenges:
 
- Experience how simple coupling of models (physical modelling and productions flow) can be done
- How important data quality improving - data-based models possible is
- How simulation can set direction for: optimized factory layout, simulate work in production, predict future performance 
- Find solution to minimize production lead-time and support leadership decision making

The technology of yesterday is struggling to support today’s operational reality and poses a serious challenge: on the one hand, upper management understandably wishes to achieve maximum ROI on the existing infrastructure that entailed big capital expenditures in the not-so-far past and, in many cases, haven’t yet reached its peak of depreciation. On the other hand, certain legacy systems cannot be retrofitted to fully support Industry 4.0 innovation and, therefore, halt progress and diminish your competitive advantage. Is there a way out?

This panel session explores various practices in selecting and qualifying IoT and data analytics partners that can help you in your legacy systems retrofitting efforts and deliver smooth automation and data flow and exchange across your enterprise:

- Identifying critical success factors before a new supplier is deemed acceptable 
- Making sound vendor selection decisions through efficient cross-functional group collaboration to develop universal supplier qualification/disqualification criteria
- Understanding which solution brings the most value to your operation
- Following a structured approach to overcome integration and interoperability issues of legacy and distributed systems
