Digital Twins in Smart Manufacturing

Digital twins in Smart Manufacturing

A digital twin is a virtual simulation model created from a machine, robotic cell or manufacturing line that can mimic the use and behavior of a real life machine, robot cell or manufacturing line. A digital twin simulates the operating environment and all the manufacturing processes as realistically as needed. One of the main purposes of digital twins is that they can be used to simulate the operation of a manufacturing process before any of the equipment have been even purchased. With digital twins, different layouts and manufacturing processes can be easily tested in order to eliminate or reduce costly physical prototypes. This is not only cost-effective, but also risk-free.

Digital Twins in Smart Manufacturing

 
Digital twins enable faster automation project development, thorough logic sequence and timing verification. They give possibilities for effective and non-disruptive off-site user training. The use of digital twins in industry is growing enormously. The benefits of a digital twin have been noticed, and grasping the idea behind digital twins is very important. This training gives you a look on what digital twins are, how they are already used in industry and how they can improve development of smart manufacturing without interruptions.

Certificate

Participants in the Digital Twins in Smart Manufacturing training will receive a Talentjourney certificate with the traine's signature.

Reflect, learn and internalize

Through a hands-on approach and team collaboration, participants will develop capacity to study and design digital twins in industrial environments.

Learn from the best

Joonas Kortelainen has a MSc degree in automation and has worked as a researcher/lecturer at Satakunta University of Applied Sciences for over 10 years. He has participated in several applied automation technology research projects being responsible for extensive 3D simulation with targets of optimization and layout design of facilities as well as creating digital twins of different manufacturing processes.

Networking

Participants will be encouraged to interact and collaborate with different stakeholders, and when possible, in cross-disciplinary teams.
