OMiLAB is a community of practice which offers a digital ecosystem bringing together open technologies to investigate and apply conceptual modeling methods for varying purposes and domains. One of the core value propositions is a dedicated Digital Innovation environment comprising several toolkits and workspaces, designed to support Product-Service Systems (PSS) prototyping – a key ingredient for PSS lifecycle management.

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.

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.
