Siemens to host Digital Twin Summit, Thursday, July 21st, in Chicago.

We are at a significant point in history to make the concept of “Digital Twin” a reality with the advent of the latest technologies and digitalization of processes. The maturity of technologies now allows you to define very accurate representations of virtual products to give a true representation of the real products. Manufacturing systems today collect and organize a wealth of information. The timing is right to realize your vision of digital twin.  Siemens invites you to this exciting one day event and is eager to show you how to execute on your vision.

Siemens has selected an excellent location for the event:  DMDII (Digital Manufacturing and Design Innovation Institute), a world-class, first-of-its-kind manufacturing hub based in Chicago. During the summit, Siemens will show you how to bring the two worlds of digital product development and manufacturing together through engaging conversations and content. We have lined up an impressive list of speakers and agenda.  This one day event will provide ample opportunities for you to listen to expert presenters, network and participate in engaging conversations to learn about digital twin, benefits and actualization.
