Lanner's COO, Andrew Aitken, was invited to deliver the opening Keynote speech at the IET’s third annual Applied Visualisation Forum last month.

The annual Applied Visualisation Forum, hosted by the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET) along with the High Value Manufacturing Catapult and Immerse UK, brings together technology providers, engineers, researchers and practitioners across a variety of sectors to share best practice techniques and knowledge around the latest disruptive technologies.  

With this years main theme focusing on digital twin technology, Andrew was asked to share Lanner's digital twin experience, discuss how the technology delivers valuable and actionable foresight for our customers and advise how those looking to accelerate their digital transformation journey can leverage this technology.

Andrew presented real world customer examples such as how smart manufacturer of the year 2017 award winner Hayward Tyler developed their expansion strategy around the digital twin, and how Jacobs Engineering implemented a digital twin to design, optimise and future proof a $multi-million new hospital project in the USA.

The keynote also included how digital twin concepts, such as the level of scope, purpose and capability all impact upon their development, implementation and how they connect together. If you would like to learn more about this, take a look at this briefing paper on Demystifying the Digital Twin.

The Panel Discussion

An expert panel were asked to share further insight into the value of predictive digital twins, addressing questions such as 'How do you overcome engagement barriers?' and 'How real is real time data?'. We have embedded a video of the panel discussion below, but to find our more about the event and see more of the day's content visit the IET's website here.
