Executable Digital Twin (xDT) – Part 4

Managing and Deploying Executable Digital Twins

Dimensions of a digital twin

Over the last few months I have interviewed some amazingly smart colleagues (Part 1, 2 and 3) that are helping to create what is being called the Siemens Executable Digital Twin. They have shown us how to create and validate an xDT’s. Part 4 is with Srinivas Raju and he is talking about a really important step, which is the deployment and management of digital twins.

Up next

Next week I will be interviewing my colleague, Dr. Roland Pastorino. We finally get back to the office as Covid restrictions are being further lifted. So we have a few more cameras and green room 😊. Roland is going to show a new technology he has been working on related to the xDT project. A technology that I’m told will make the life of engineers working on real time processing a lot easier. Stay tuned!
