BIFOCAlps workshop "Simulating, Testing, Modeling - using a digital twin in manufacturing industries"


To be aware of benefits, advantages but also risks of digitalization, forecasting of different scenarios gets more important for companies. This workshop will be chaired by the BIFOCAlps project with a strong focus on improving the innovation system for manufacturing industries. Testing, simulating and modeling the effects of digitalization activities is one of the hot topics companies are dealing with. In this workshop we will show and discuss different approaches of the “digital twin” in manufacturing industries.

With this workshop the BIFOCAlps project want to address manufacturing companies, innovation managers, researchers and developers and scientists who deal with the topics modeling, simulating and testing. But also policy makers who are interested to discuss the effects of a digital twin regarding education and data security.
