ABOUT webinar
The Digital Twin concept;
Major challenges in Digital Twin implementation;
Why scaling preventative maintenance is so difficult and why you might want to reconsider?
With the raise of technologies manufacturers faced the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0). It is not always easy to understand where the digital transformation is bringing us, that is why we would like to take a closer look at the "Digital Twin" concept within the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). At this webinar we will discuss the main concept of "Digital Twin" and what are the main challenges in implementation. Why scaling preventative maintenance is so difficult and why you might want to reconsider? These and many other questions will be answered during the session.

    Smart Factory League
    Even though Digitalization is in full spate as far as the eye can see, there is still a huge gap between companies which are using advantages of Industry 4.0 in their manufacturing processes and those that are willing to implement digital strategies and use them on a daily basis. It's hard not to get lost at all combinations of various technologies and amount of data.

    Our Summit offers a platform for industry experts to share their experience, discuss current challenge, examine what the education sector should be doing to prepare future workers, consider how to recruit and retain a properly trained labor force, and explore the latest trends for Smart Factories to drive profitability and achieve optimum potential. Learn from the best and make your manufacturing even smarter!
