Digital technologies in industry”

Posted on

On December 3, 2020, as part of the business program of the II International Forum “New Production Technologies”, a scientific and practical conference “New Production Technologies” was held. The conference was organized in 2 areas: “Digital Technologies in Industry” and “Economics of the Digital Industry”.

Vice-Governor of St. Petersburg Vladimir Knyaginin acted as the moderator of the conference in the direction of “Digital Technologies in Industry”, who outlined the key goals of the event: discussion of the challenges facing various sectors of the economy and regions of the Russian Federation as part of the introduction of advanced production technologies.

We have passed the first stage, when we got the skills to work in the digital environment, the experience of building cooperative ties.  We understand that an order is being formed to extract “smart” data. The main question today is what will follow this stage of development?

Petersburg Polytechnic University (Spuy), Head of the Spuy NTI Center “New Production Technologies”, Head of the World-Class Scientific Center “Advanced Digital Technologies” Alexei Boroko, delivered a welcoming speech to the conference participants, who noted the importance of the discussed questions and introduced the co-organizer of the conference: the Faculty of Economics of Moscow State University named after M.V. Lomonosov (Moscow State University).

Also, Dean of the Faculty of Economics of Moscow State University Alexander Suzan delivered a welcoming speech in the format of a video message: “I welcome the Spuy NTI Center “New Production Technologies”, the TechNet Association, the world-class Scientific Center “Advanced Digital Technologies” and all the participants of the conference! I consider it important that we successfully cooperate on the most unexpected interdisciplinary lines.

Even earlier, Spuy and I made a non-standard decision and created mirror laboratories of our universities.  I have the honor to speak as the head of the educational and scientific laboratory “Economics of the Digital Industry” of the NTI Center of Spuy. We did this to combine technological and engineering ideas with economic and institutional ones. I hope that we will be able to demonstrate effective joint solutions at the end of the conference.”

Aleksey Boroko was the first to present the report “Digital Twins – Technology-Integrator, Technology-Driver”. Aleksey Boroko began his speech by presenting the work of the Spuy NTI Center team in conditions of self-isolation (remote mode), when all processes were built on a digital platform for the development and use of CML-Bench ™ digital twins. “Over 35 weeks of work in remote mode, more than 46 thousand virtual tests were carried out on dozens of specialized stands and virtual test sites. More than 4,600 design solutions were generated for more than 10 industries,” the speaker emphasized.

Aleksey Boroko noted the work of specialists from the NTI Center of Spuy “New Production Technologies” together with representatives of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise “RFNC-VNIIEF” on the development of the first edition of the national standard GOST R “Computer models and modeling. Digital twins. General Provisions”.

The definition of a digital twin and the systemic basis for the development and use of digital twins (DT) at the stages of the life cycle were given: development (DT-1), production (DT-2) and operation (DT-3). On the example of projects carried out in the interests of high-tech enterprises, the use of digital twin technology based on the digital platform for the development and application of digital twins CML-Bench ™ was demonstrated, which is to ensure the global competitiveness of companies.

At the end of his speech, Alexey Boroko presented the project for the development of the KAMA-1 electric car, the first Russian electric car that meets all the international certification requirements of the Customs Union. The KAMA-1 electric car will be presented on December 10-11 at the site of the VII annual national exhibition VUZPROMEXPO-2020 in Moscow.

“The intellectual property landscape is fundamentally changing. Not individual patents and know-how, but only a combination of the results of intellectual activity provides solutions that are stored in digital twin technologies and, if necessary, are patented at the time the product enters the market,” Alexey Boroko emphasized.

Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Scientific Director of the Institute of Power Engineering of Spuy Yuri Petrina presented a report on the topic “Digital technologies. Key directions in power engineering and power engineering”. The speaker outlined the main stages of the life cycle of products in power engineering and energy.

gave examples of the use of digital technologies for the design and simulation of gas turbines and wet steam turbines for nuclear power plants. “The expediency of introducing digital technologies is determined by compliance with the final goals. In power engineering, the main thing is to ensure competitiveness, in the energy sector – electricity tariffs, reliability,” said Yuri Petrina.

The next speaker, Deputy Governor of the Khanty-Manses Autonomous Okrug (Kham) – Urge, Alexei Zabozlaev, indicated that one of the priority areas for the development of the region is digital transformation. In the field of oil production, the activities of Gazpromneft-Khantos LLC were noted, which was the first in Russia to develop and apply a digital integrated field model using artificial intelligence to manage production, which will reduce the company’s operating costs by up to 15%. In the field of public administration, the development of an electronic services system was noted, which includes a full cycle of providing services: from appointment to payments without the participation of officials.

Alexey Zabozlaev noted the cooperation agreement that was signed between Surgut State University (SSU) and Spuy as part of the business program of the I Northern International Conference “Digital Life and Digital Industry”. As part of the joint activities of Sirs and Spuy, in 2020, 2 engineering centers began to operate on the basis of Sirs: the Center for Computer Engineering and the Center for Chemical Engineering.

whose activities are aimed at transferring competencies and introducing digital technologies for industrial production.  Attracting technology partners, replicating the experience of technology transformation leaders and developing the educational training of technology transformation leaders are the key tasks for the region in the field of digital technology development. We are open for dialogue and cooperation. We are ready to invest technological, labor and financial resources to achieve the digital transformation of the region,” Alexey Zabozlaev stressed.
