    Siemens Global University Challenge 2016
    - Enabling the digital twin -

    2016 - Challenge has been executed! Thank you all for your participation, great ideas and impressive motivation and work!

    A key aspect in future industry is the availability of a digital representation of machines, components or manufacturing processes. That is the so called 'digital twin'. Measurements and data acquisition methods are the key to gather information for the digital twin and ensure product quality.

    This leads us to the following questions: How to design the measurement and data acquisition methods to seamlessly enable the digital twin? How to build business drivers around the digital twin?

    Students of eight universities worldwide have participated to Phase 1 & 2 of the “Global University Challenge” with ideas for enabling the digital twin. The universities are: RWTH Aachen, TU Berlin, Universität Potsdam, University of Central Florida, Georgia Institute of Technology, IE Business School Madrid, Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University. Twelve winning ideas have been announced and won 1,000 €. During Phase 3 five finalist ideas worldwide have refined and prototyped their ideas with Siemens experts in an onsite Hackathon in our gasturbine manufacturing facility in Berlin (Germany) in March 2017.
