OMiLAB: A Smart Innovation Environment for Digital Engineers
PRO-VE 2021

In the Internet of Things era, this profile implies the ability to perform both digital design and engineering activities, to seman­tically bridge multiple layers of abstraction and specificity - from business analysis down to cyber-physical engineering. In the paper's proposal, this integration is enabled by conceptual modelling methods and interoperable modelling tools, tailored to support the creation of Digital Twins for innovative digital business models.

A Digital Innovation Environment powered by Open Models Laboratory
OMILAB Brochure

The Digital Innovation Environment (DiEn) powered by OMiLAB enables design, engineering and training activities for organisations pursuing Digital Transformation initiatives. Stakeholders from multi-disciplinary backgrounds are supported to create innovative ideas as Digital Business Models, to materialise them in proof-of-concept implementations using Digital Twins and to evaluate their feasibility in a laboratory setting as/through the OMiLAB Innovation Corner, within a corporate or academic context focusing on Digital Innovation.
