How many optimizations could you test out and uncover if you could analyze a virtual copy of your processes, systems and products?
A digital twin is a digital replica of a physical object or group of objects that interact by transferring data between each other.
Digital twins use IoT, artificial intelligence, machine learning and software analytics to update and change as their physical counterparts change.
They help you test new production approaches and identify opportunities to improve collaboration without rolling those changes out physically first.
This kind of virtualized analysis will be particularly useful in the monitoring and maintenance of aircraft engines, wind turbines and large structures like offshore platforms and vessels.
But it will require huge amounts of data and complex processing, so you’ll need a dedicated, reliable IoT network built for software, like Curiosity™ Core, to make it work.
