AE Talks Webinar #3: Digital Twins for accelerated Product Development

Thursday 10 September 2020 | 11:00am
Dr Mark-Paul Buckingham
Managing Director of Xi Engineering Consultants Ltd

By combining the real and virtual world we can assess products in much greater detail and gather a greater understanding. Historically a product was only measured before it left the factory and if it returned broken after use. Today we can continuously collect data to improve or understanding of its usage, optimise its requirements for maintenance and improve future product generations. Combining this with a virtual version or Digital Twin allows rapid development in an accelerating world.


Dr Mark-Paul Buckingham is the Managing Director of Xi Engineering Consultants Ltd. He achieved first-class honours in mechanical and completed a PhD in mechanical engineering, specialising in the measurement of vibration reduction. Xi Engineering helps clients to accelerate their research & development, solving complex engineering problems by applying advanced Multiphysics simulation and measurement techniques. Dr Buckingham has more than ten years of experience in managing technical projects and he is regularly asked to speak at international conferences on topics such as Digital Twin and Industry 4.0
