Board of Directors
Shaping digitization together.
The Industrial Digital Twin was founded by VDMA and ZVEI together with Bitkom and 20 companies as a spin-off of the Plattform Industrie 4.0. Together with the Industry 4.0 platform and its initiatives, we are shaping the future of industry. IDTA focuses on the further development of the Asset Administration Shell as the digital twin for Industry 4.0.
Digital twins are becoming the core element of digital value creation for industrial applications. With the Asset Administration Shell, IDTA is creating an innovative, standardized and open industrial digital twin. Manufacturers, users and users of industrial software and automation technology thus create the necessary prerequisite for more interoperability, more software, more artificial intelligence and innovations for smart manufacturing. The sovereign and secure handling of data of industrial digital twins plays an outstanding role. With the Asset Administration Shell, IDTA is implementing an important industrial application for GAIA-X.
This year we are meeting virtually at the Home of Industrial Pioneers.
