Industry associations have an important role to play in the digital transformation

In March this year, the European Confederation of Woodworking Industries, CEI-Bois, initiated a pilot project together with Cobuilder to help manufacturers digitise their data and make it available in a machine-readable and standardised format. We spoke with Hansueli Schmid, one of the members of the CEI-Bois workgroup that manages the TIMBIM project, to learn more about the development of the common data structures for the European timber industry.

To be able to take full advantage of the data that is collected and stored in the project, product identification is a very important aspect to consider when developing the digital twin.
