Intended for use in the early stages of the design process, MDT uses powerful search algorithms to identify and characterize alternative microgrid design decisions in terms of user-defined objectives such as cost, performance, and reliability. Using the MDT, a designer can: Search effectively through large design spaces for efficient alternativesInvestigate the simultaneous impacts of several design decisionsDerive defensible, quantitative evidence for decisionsGain a quantitative understanding of the relationships between design objectives and the tradeoffs associated with alternate technological design decisions.

The United States takes pride in being on the cutting edge of all things digital, and rightly so: American innovations and innovators have led the way.

The Most Digital Companies Are Leaving All the Rest Behind

Yet according to recent research from the McKinsey Global Institute, the U.S. economy operates at only 18% of its digital potential, and the sort of productivity gains that digital technologies should be enabling are not showing up in the broader economy. Why is that? The answer is that a new digital divide has opened up in America. Just about every individual, company and sector of the economy now has access to digital technologies — there are hardly any “have nots” anymore. But a widening gap exists between the “haves” and a group we call the “have-mores”: companies and sectors that are using their digital capabilities far more than the rest to innovate and transform how they operate.

A Chart That Shows Which Industries Are the Most Digital (and Why) When business leaders talk about going digital, many are uncertain about what that means beyond buying the latest IT system.

A Chart That Shows Which Industries Are the Most Digital (and Why)

Companies do need assets like computers, servers, networks, and software, but those purchases are just the start. Digital leaders stand out from their competitors in two ways: how they put digital to work, especially in engaging with clients and suppliers, and how intensively their employees use digital tools in every aspect of their daily activities.

Recent research from the McKinsey Global Institute (MGI) looked at the state of digitization in sectors across the U.S. economy and found a large and growing gap between sectors, and between companies within those sectors. The most digital companies see outsized growth in productivity and profit margins. But what are the key attributes of a digital leader? Digital assets across the entire economy doubled over the past 15 years, as firms invested not just in IT but in digitizing their physical assets.
