Equality means each individual or group of people is given the same resources or opportunities. Equity recognizes that each person has different circumstances, and allocates the exact resources and opportunities needed to reach an equal outcome.

Amanda Mohan (ZF), Ines Oud (SIMCON), Katharina Hopp (Bosch), Dr. Seema Chopra (Boeing), and Dr. Vidya Venkataramini (GE Aerospace) discuss this year's #IWD2023 theme of embracing equity. Hosted by Samantha Simmonds, Journalist & Broadcaster on Air with BBC News, the above topics shape this interesting and invigorating discussion.

Exploring Digital Twins: Common Understanding, Challenges, and Business Value

The concept of Digital Twins is gaining increasing recognition, and businesses are eager to explore the potential value of this technology. However, many organizations still lack proven use cases and implementation strategies.

Craig Brown (CIMdata), Antonio Del Prete (University of Salento, Advanced Engineering Solutions), Maurizio Tursini (Gruppo Cimbali), Thomas Tecco (XLDyn LLC), and Dr. Jan Dolinsky (Tangent Works), share their experiences and perspectives on the potential of Digital Twins, as well as practical strategies for successfully implementing these projects.


Frictionless AI | Operationalize Data and Analytics

Friction can be a big problem when engineers validate components for cars or planes. But it can be just as much of an issue when you are trying to use data to improve your business. Instead of high temperatures and grinding gears, friction in data analytics can lead to failed projects, wasted money, and unnecessary work. Organizations implementing data analytics solutions can have friction between departments and people, technical friction between tools and vendors, or financial friction between aspiration and reality. Often, it is all three.

We explore how to overcome these challenges with careful thinking and holistic solutions; equal parts organizational education, technology acceleration, and all-around flexibility.

Engineering the Future | Physics Simulation and Design

As the world evolves and technology advances, consumers demand products that are connected, sustainable, lightweight, and low cost. Designing and validating innovative products presents unique challenges. Problems like poor antenna placement, overheating printed circuit board (PCB) components, and short-lived batteries can sink a product before it even launches. Next-generation design requires the right mix of features, a compelling user experience, and reduced costs. Finding this balance can take time and money, but today’s software tools enable users like never before.

Hear how industry experts are engineering the future and optimizing performance across multiple disciplines encompassing structures, motion, fluids, thermal management, electromagnetics, system modeling, embedded systems, and more.
