Digital Twin
Readiness Assessment

A cooperative study on the digital twin in the
manufacturing industry by msg and Fraunhofer IPK

The study is only available in German, if you have any questions please contact

Where are you in the development and rollout of the digital twin?

According to Gartner, digital twins are among the top 10 strategic technology trends. Many companies are taking a close look at the digital twin, but generally do not exploit its full potential.

Our aim was to take a holistic view of the topic. With this in mind, we developed the Digital Twin Readiness Assessment, an innovative approach to determine and assess the maturity of the industry on the path to the digital twin in a structured manner.

The interviews were conducted with selected specialists and managers in the manufacturing industry in the DACH region, with around 60 percent of the companies having more than 50,000 employees. The study is aimed equally at companies that have had little contact with the digital twin to date, as well as those that have already gained experience with it.

Gain valuable and actionable insights for your business.
