I started my career as mechanical engineer, and became head of a digital group of 40 over the years by transforming conventional capabilities into innovative building blocks like extended reality, simulation, digital twin and industrial metaverse. Currently responsible for GTM strategies, offering development plans, solution architecting, team- and delivery management. In order to structure and frame these experiences, I finished an MBA to underline practice with education and to gather further experiences from peer digital leaders. The last few years created the momentum for and the necessity of digital technologies, accordingly we caught up with the demand and developed the definition of industrial metaverse and identified its main building blocks.
Industrial metaverse is an evolution of the traditional industrial operation that empowers stakeholders to create value in a persistent shared experience connecting physical and virtual with historic data, real time visualization, and prediction through simulation - past, present, and potential futures always in sight.
XR, digital twins, simulation, machine learning are all crucial elements of the way we'll work and do business in the future, needing niche skills and resilient mindset from the workforce, so let's embrace the change and discuss future opportunities and challenges on Oct 26th.
The manufacturing sector’s number-one topic of interest is around the metaverse, according to Ralph Haupter, President, EMEA at Microsoft. The industrial metaverse digitalizes information to transfer them to the worker. Some industrial players already use augmented or mixed reality solutions to reduce error rates and improve training experiences in different areas across value chains. Also, they are using this technology to manage logistics for assembling products as well as for quality control. All these processes become easier to complete, by connecting workers in the industrial metaverse. Will the industrial metaverse disrupt the global industry? Find out in this panel on Oct 26.
