The technological evolution underway is characterized by a shift from "atoms" to "bits". The economic reasons are linked to the lower cost of the bits, both in terms of "storage" and processing and transport. If it is possible to carry out operations on bits instead of atoms, companies choose this path.
Testing and simulating digital models of products is now a consolidated reality.
Today, however, we try to go further.
Some companies, for example, have for some years extended the use of the bit model of their products to their maintenance and control. When the product is sold, it is associated with a bit model that from that moment will be specific to that product, a digital twin, a digital twin.
The product made of atoms, contains a variety of sensors that in almost real time communicate with the digital twin, informing it of the use in progress
To deepen these aspects, the technological transfer and innovation, consortium company for innovation of the Treviso-Belluno, Verona and Venice Rovigo Chamber of Commerce, in collaboration with CONSIDI organized the seminar "DIGITAL TWIN: ROAD 4.0 FOR EFFICIENCY OF PROCESSES AND QUALITY OF PRODUCTS
The appointment took place on Tuesday 7 May 2019 in Grisignano di Zocco, at the Considi headquarters.
The seminar was an opportunity to discuss issues related to the digital transformation of companies in a 4.0 perspective such as lean processes and predictive manufacturing, involving experts from the Universities of Padua and Verona. Some practical cases of digital transformation in the company have been presented.
