The Digital Twin in The Industry 4.0 Revolution: Challenges in Model Integration, Simulations & Data Analysis

April 18, 2021 9:00-17:30 (Israel Time)

The role of digital twin in industry and systems is expanding – the development of monitoring, diagnostics and prognostic capabilities are a cornerstone in control, efficiency and the implementation of predictive maintenance. Sign up to the conference to learn about the most important revolution of our time!

About The Conference

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (or Industry 4.0) is the continuous automation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices, using modern smart technology. Large-scale machine-to-machine (M2M) communication and the Internet of Things (IoT) are combined for increased automation, improved communication and self-monitoring, and the production of smart machines that can analyze and diagnose problems without the need for human intervention.

The concept of digital twins is based on a combination of physical models that describe the machine’s behavior and its deterioration processes over time with analytics capabilities that enable lessons to be learned, decision making and model improvement. The physical models can include the control model, the load model, the erosion model, the crack development model and more while the analytics model which is based on experimental data and operational data from the field.

The purpose of the conference is to discuss the applications and challenges of the Digital Twin as part of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0) and related fields such as PHM and SHM. The conference will address aspects of technology, systems vision and analytics that are closely integrated into digital twins.
