WEBINAR: Navigating the Waves of Change: Digitalisation in the Maritime Industry

A webinar from the South East England and London Home Counties Branch.

In the era of Industry 4.0, we confront the sweeping transformations it necessitates. At the core of this evolving landscape stands the 3D model, predominantly crafted using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools. This underscores the growing significance of CAD as the conduit linking the 3D model with the broader domain of Industry 4.0.

The Digital Twin emerges as the pivotal bridge connecting the tangible and virtual realms, coexisting seamlessly throughout the construction process and expanding the horizons of possibility across the entire product lifecycle. Nevertheless, digitalisation is both attainable and mature enough to commence implementation, becoming an integral part of our future strategic vision. This webinar explores all this and more and discusses the future role of digitalisaition in our industry.
