Madhu Gaganam with Dell Technologies

By Scott MacKenzie | 07/17/2023 |

A quick summary of the points in Industrial Talk's conversation with Madhu Gaganam at Q1 OMG meeting:
The concept of digital twins has been around for a long time, but it has only recently been gaining traction in the industrial sector.

Digital twins are virtual representations of physical objects or systems that can be used to simulate their behavior and performance.

Digital twins can be used for a variety of purposes, including:
improving operational efficiency
optimizing product design
predicting failures
training operators

The edge is where the data is created, and it is important for digital twins because it allows for real-time decision making.

There are three levels of maturity for digital twins: visualization, digital shadowing, and digital twinning.

In the future, digital twins are likely to become an integral part of the industrial sector.

Anna Wells with IEN

The key points from our conversation:

There is a lot of change happening in the industrial business sector, including labor challenges and the adoption of new technologies.
Manufacturers need to address the perception that working in manufacturing is dirty and low-paying. They should also focus on the benefits of working in manufacturing, such as good benefits and opportunities for learning.
Manufacturers are increasingly adopting new technologies, such as AI and analytics. However, they need to be careful not to implement new technologies during periods of high demand, as this can lead to disruptions.
Small and mid-sized manufacturers need to be careful about who they trust to help them with their technology needs. They need to find a partner who can help them implement new technologies without causing downtime or disruptions.
