Digital twins have been one of the biggest recent developments in the world of technology. The virtual replicas of physical systems, processes or products provide a valuable real-time insight into how a physical asset is performing.
Additive manufacturing technologies have enabled significant changes to the way we design complex components and create early prototypes. But the uptake of these new production methods beyond prototyping and small-scale production remains slow.
When workers have the power of fully connected technology in the palm of their hands, they can increase productivity, efficiency and data input accuracy – all of which have incredible impacts on the bottom line. Tom McNeela reports.
Intelligent use of real-time data is critical to successful industrial digitalisation. However, ensuring that data flows effectively is just as critical to success. Todd Gurela explains the importance of getting your manufacturing network right.
The race to launch a supersonic aircraft continues as aerospace giant Boeing partners with Aerion to develop a plane that could bring back faster-than-sound premium travel, 15 years after Concorde was axed.
It is widely accepted that productivity in the UK and Scotland remains a challenge for economic growth, and there is considerable commentary suggesting that focusing on the introduction of innovative technologies is key to solving this.
