Trusted Digital Twins Data Connection Across the Product Life Cycle
There is a special bond between the digital twin and the physical world it represents. The digital twin has largely been a PLM concept for design and performance simulation of discrete products. Now, new kinds of digital twins are available to support and improve specific manufacturing plant production processes through Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) and obtain a better understanding of the product performance in operation through IoT.
Each of these various kinds of digital twins have been developed as siloed solutions, each dealing with different manufacturing processes across the product lifecycle. The data exchange among digital twins breaking these silos opens manufacturers the door to unprecedented insights, visibility and automation opportunities leading to efficiency improvements in product design, product performance and manufacturing process operations like never before.
The presentation demonstrates how open-source technology can be used for providing a seamless and controlled exchange of data across digital twins based on open international standards.
