How did Digital Innovation Hubs like Change2Twin assessment scheme? And what was the experience with the assessment on beneficiary side? We asked representatives of two DIH which guided our beneficiaries in the first round of the Assessment open call. They have offered both perspectives, so watch the talks by Thomas Gross from Linz Center of Mechatronics DIH in Austria and Frank Doyle from IS4PROD DIH in Ireland!
Thomas Gross from the Austrian Digital Innovation Hub Linz Center of Mechatronics (LCM) guided Slavagnini Maschinenbau GmbH to get ready for the adoption of a digital twin. The consultation was part of Change2Twin assessment scheme for manufacturing SMEs. Salvagnini, as beneficiary of Change2Twin funding (1st round Assessment Voucher), received from LCM a thorough analysis of their digitalisation level focusing on their preparedness for a digital twin. At the end of the assessment they got a ready to use recipe how to deploy their digital twin. In 2022 Salvagnini was granted another Change2Twin funding (Deployment Voucher) and are now on their way to deploy their digital twin. In this talk Thomas presents the assessment procedure from the perspective of a Digital Innovation Hub and provides also insights on behalf of Salvagnini.
Frank Doyle from the Irish Digital Innovation Hub IS4PROD guided two local companies in Change2Twin assessment scheme, in which they were getting ready for the adoption of a digital twin. In this talk Frank presents the procedure from the perspective of a Digital Innovation Hub and provides also insights on behalf of Total Precision, one of the companies he guided.
Change2Twin offers funding to manufacturing SMEs to get an assessment of their preparedness for the adoption of a digital twin.
