The ecosystem surrounding manufacturers contains many technologies and partners needed to make digital twinning possible. However, manufacturers still struggle to find the right partners. To help both sides – manufacturers and technology providers – Change2Twin has created the Marketplace.
The Change2Twin Marketplace is a curated architecture-agnostic technology platform, which is populated with state-of-the-art tools and solutions from technology providers. All these offerings are related to creation and deployment of digital twins (e.g. data modelling, control systems, applications in all lifecycle phases). A requirement for an offering to be presented in the Marketplace is a description of its interoperability with other solutions through the use of standards.
The Marketplace has been primarily developed as a tool for Digital Innovation Hubs (DIH) helping manufacturers in their digitization efforts. Using the Marketplace DIH can easily find suitable solutions for manufacturers interested in acquiring a digital twin and provide them with a ready-to-use twinning recipe. The manufacturing companies can apply in Change2Twin Open Calls to get funding.
The Marketplace is currently under development and will be made available here on Change2Twin website in early 2021.
