Digital Twin: Virtual Model of a Process, Product or Service.

Digital Twin: Virtual Model of a Process, Product or Service.

A digital twin is the virtual of a physical object or system across its life cycle.
It uses real-time data from connected sensors or other sources to tell the story of an asset from testing to use in the real world.
It provides a detailed, intricate view of a physical asset that might be far away. With the twin, there’s no need for the engineer and the asset to be in the same room, or even the same country.

Digital twins enable learning, reasoning and dynamic recalibrating for improved decision making. Digital twins give us a glimpse into what is happening, or what can happen, with physical assets now and far into the future.

A digital twin uses data from connected sensors to tell the story of an asset all the way through its life-cycle, from testing to use in the real world. With IoT data, we can measure specific indicators of asset health and performance, like temperature and humidity. For example- by incorporating this data into the virtual model, or the digital twin, engineers have a full view into how the car is performing, through real-time feedback from the vehicle itself.

Digital twins are already helping organizations avoid digital disruption by understanding changing customer preferences, customizations and experiences. It means businesses can deliver products more rapidly, with higher quality, from the components, to the code. Yet the promise of digital twin can still go further.
