“The Power of the Digital Twin” (Ep. #2): Simulations, Supply Chains, and Sustainability

By Quinn Foster

Welcome to Talking Aerospace Today – a podcast for the Aerospace & Defense industry. A place that brings the promise of tomorrow’s technology to the ears of our listeners today.

We return to our conversation from last episode about the digital twin, one of the most impactful components of digital transformation in the aerospace and defense (A&D) industry. It is helping organizations reduce development costs by allowing them to test and learn from a virtual representation of a product before building it. However, successfully implementing it requires full commitment by the engineers and the management.

Patty Russo, the Global Marketing Manager for the Aerospace and Defense Industry and the new host of this podcast, is once again joined by Dale Tutt, Vice President of Global Industries at Siemens Digital Industries Software, and Todd Tuthill, Vice President of Aerospace and Defense at Siemens Digital Industries Software.

In today’s episode, part two of a two-part conversation, you’ll learn about the benefits an organization gets from implementing and trusting the digital twin. You’ll also hear how the digital twin can help solve supply chain issues and help an organization reach its sustainability goals. Additionally, Todd will share some lessons from companies succeeding in their digital transformation efforts.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The benefit of trusting the digital twin (01:42)
  • How the digital twin can help in interoperability and integration (05:50)
  • How the digital twin can help in solving supply chain problems (08:07)
