Mevea Seminar 2017

Invitation to Seminar, October 4th 2017

We are pleased to invite you to attend a seminar where world-class experts are presenting the possibilities, practical examples and benefits of using Digital Twin throughout the whole product lifecycle for supporting the product development, sales/marketing, training and customer service.

Today’s machinery is moving with exponential speed to becoming smart and connected and at the same time changing the world of machine builders and users. Repeating the old ways of working is not enough to be successful in the future, instead bold changes and new approaches are needed. One fast-growing approach is the use of Digital Twin – a physics-based, virtual twin of a physical product able to simulate in real-time its behaviour and use – to design, validate, train and optimise the products virtually. The Digital Twin concept is also rapidly replacing the traditional product development and training simulators.

Mevea will organise the seminar focusing on Digital Twin and virtual technologies on Wednesday, 4 October at the Finnish Science Centre Heureka in Vantaa, Finland (15 min from Helsinki Airport – Navigation address: Kuninkaalantie 5).

After the seminar, you are invited to a dinner and networking session at Heureka. In addition, you have the opportunity to test and experience various Digital Twin implementations from Mevea and customers presenting during the seminar. After dinner, we have reserved for you an opportunity to continue networking and discussions at the nearby Sokos Hotel Vantaa.
