The main ambition of Change2Twin is to ensure that 100% of manufacturing companies, especially SMEs and Mid-caps in Europe have access to 100% of technologies needed to deploy a digital twin.
Specifically, the project focuses on three sub-objectives:
- Developing and providing a truly end-to-end service to the manufacturing SMEs where the end user receives from its local, trusted party (e.g. a DIH) a thorough analysis of the digitalization potential and a cross-border, multi-stakeholder (involving both components providers and an integrator), and ready-to-use recipe for implementation.
- Providing an architecture-agnostic technology marketplace with dedicated knowledge models supporting the entity preparing the recipe for a complete solution in selecting the best components and most suitable providers.

TTTech Industrial Automation contributes to the project by providing the Edge Computing platform for collecting real-time data from the machine or industrial line and by implementing it in several pilots to demonstrate its capability to support the deployment of Digital Twin.
Additionally, TTTech Computertechnik AG participates in the project as responsible partner for communication, dissemination and exploitation activities. TTTech contributes to define the content curation strategy that will be used for online dissemination to the digital community, e.g. webinars, and to coordinate specific activities such as supportive partners mapping and ambassador program.
