9:20 AM Case Study: Understanding And Enabling A Digital Twin

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

1:40 PM Panel Interactive: Leveraging 3-D Printing for Agility and Improved Order Fulfilment

The advantages of additive manufacturing, aka 3-D printing, are endless, and a lot of organizations see this as a perfect Industry 4.0 Pilot opportunity that can quickly demonstrate the ROI and significantly upgrade the accuracy and speed at which parts can be produced. 

This panel discusses practical applications of 3-D printing:

- Improving your performance and ability to produce complex designs on-demand
- Reducing lead times and providing  agility and highly responsive order fulfillment 
- Securing your competitive edge through the product customization capabilities and on-demand production
- Delivering reduction in labor and production costs

2:35 PM Panel Interactive Working Groups: Leveraging 3-D Printing for Agility and Improved Order Fulfillment

Networking opportunity: Discuss opportunities and challenges associated with additive manufacturing in small working groups in response to a question/challenge posed by the panel moderator.
