Webinar: Enabling Open Standards-Based Digital Twins with New Visualization Technologies

Date: April 24, 2024
Time: 9:00 AM (Eastern US)


VCollab and Jonte Connect invite you to join a webinar to explore new capabilities in Simulation and Test Data Management and how to use ISO standards to increase the interoperability of engineering and PLM/ILS information.

We will explore such key topics as:

  • Digital Twins
  • IoT
  • Sensor Integration for AI and ML
  • Open Standards and Information Models
  • Simulation (FEM)
  • PLM
  • Visualization Technologies

CIO, digital transformation experts, engineering directors, simulation
engineers, and CAD/PLM managers will benefit from this webinar.


Professor Terje Rølvåg
Setting the scene! Rølvåg will define the term digital twin, describe use cases and introduce elements of digital twin architectures. He will share the potential of powerful visualization techniques to optimize the benefits of digital twins and pinpoint lack of such support in current applications.

Open Standards-Based Digital Twins
Mr. Henrik Galtung & Dr. Tuan Tran

Creating and maintaining digital twins requires a high level of interoperability and scalability among different data sources, formats, and applications. To address this challenge, Jotne has developed an approach based on the deployment of ISO 10303 STEP standards and ISO compliant repositories, which provide a common data model and a persistent data storage for digital twins.

This approach is showcased through several use cases from aerospace and high-tech mechanical industrial R&D projects, such as: METRIC (ESA), DEFINE (ESA), CRYSTAL (Lockheed Martin), Arrowhead Tools (EU Horizon 2020), KYKLOS (EU Horizon 2020), and dTHOR (EDF). These use cases demonstrate how Jotne enables digital twins by developing flexible systems that can scale and interoperate with downstream applications.

New Visualization Technologies
Sumit Jai Singh & Evan Brennan
VCollab is revolutionizing conventional post-processing and CAE reporting. In this presentation learn how VCollab users are leveraging this tool to their advantage. Instead of being confined to conventional reporting formats with limited simulation insights, your teams can collaborate and make more informed design and product decisions using VCollab’s 3D Digital CAE Reports.

With VCollab’s advanced technology, traditional post-processing and reporting time are significantly reduced, ranging from 60% to 95%. VCollab enables organizations to quickly review CAE results which helps in making design decisions faster. Rapid Results Review is the ability to quickly extract and visualize analysis results from a broad range of multi-physics solvers, skipping the time consuming manual post-processing process as we know it today and helping companies make faster and more informed design decisions.
