The annual “Microsoft Intelligent Manufacturing Award”, jointly organized by Microsoft and management consultants Roland Berger, honors innovative ideas and creative approaches that are driving the transformation to Industry 4.0. Although a very large number of applications were submitted in 2021, WITTENSTEIN was announced as the winner in the “Scale!” category with the implementation of our standardized digital twin, the Asset Administration Shell.
“Digital twin” – an award-winning achievement
The so-called digital twin connects physical industrial products with the digital world. Both the products to be manufactured and the machines on which they are produced are individually known from their lifecycle record and able to provide information on their origin, characteristics and capabilities. Enormous process improvements can thus be initiated in the “Smart Factory” and value-added potential unlocked.
