Digital Twin Consortium Announces Open-Source Collaboration Community

BOSTON, May, 12, 2021 — Digital Twin Consortium (DTC) announced an open-source collaboration community to accelerate the adoption of digital twin-enabling technologies and solutions. Consortium members and non-members can collaborate on open-source projects, code, and collateral and become part of the DTC ecosystem.

To contribute to the new open-source collaboration community, candidates complete a project application, which the DTC Technical Advisory Committee reviews. If approved, contributors upload their project or related content to the DTC Open-Source Collaboration GitHub site. GitHub is an open-source repository hosting service, which contains project files and revision history, and enables participants to share and collaborate on digital twin-related content and projects.

“Open-source projects produce high-quality software,” said David McKee, CEO, CTO & Founder, Slingshot Simulations, and co-chair of DTC Technology, Terminology, and Taxonomy, and Open Source, Standards, and Platform Stacks Working Groups. “The open-source knowledge pool is orders of magnitude larger with communities of interest coming together to solve common challenges and contributing a diversity of ideas.”

“Open-source projects are more flexible and respond more rapidly to market demands than closed counterparts,” said Dan Isaacs, CTO, DTC. “Our Open-Source Collaboration Community initiative will substantially expand the DTC ecosystem and facilitate the adoption of digital twin and digital twin enabling technologies.”
