A “Non-Engineering” View on Digital Twins in Supply Chains

Wednesday, February 28, 2024 noon to 1 p.m.

Please join us for the next talk in our Digital Twin Seminar Series, A “Non-Engineering” View on Digital Twins in Supply Chains, by Dr. Rajinder Bhandal.

This talk provides a welcoming gander into the world of digital twins in supply chains, from the lens of a social scientist. A path towards understanding the ever-changing landscape of supply chains from a business and societal perspective will be presented. There is a need to comprehend real-world problems and examine how these translate into challenges for data requirements. Alongside this, it is necessary to acknowledge the various forms in which data maps onto improving managerial decision-making, in the context of supply chains. Implications of these factors will be considered via the digital twin capabilities periodic table, as conceptualized by the Digital Twin Consortium (2022), from a computer science, software developer, and digital twin engineer perspective.
