Episode 8 Transcript and Show Notes

Technology allows people who are building and developing things to do it in virtual space, the digital space, and then to use the information from that exact duplicate and build the part. Companies are looking for ways to get a competitive advantage and that’s the promise of the digital twin.

You can now simulate the manufacturing of that part, make a change, and see where it works and where it doesn’t before investing in its production. The collaboration between manufacturing engineers has also improved in areas such as end-to-end information flow and teamwork.
