IoT and the Digital Twin

Digital Twin vs. Digital Thread

Digital twin and digital thread are terms that are used a lot in the industry today. Why are the digital twin and digital thread so important for collaboration today? Our chief analyst defines digital twin and digital thread and the important role they play in product development

WHAT IS A DIGITAL TWIN OF A PRODUCTION SYSTEM AND WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO USE IT?

A digital twin of a production system feeds production line sensor data into a simulation of the production line. You can then measure virtual sensors and capture virtual sensor data off of the simulation. When you combine that with the physical sensor data, you have a richer view into what is actually happening in the production system overall. In this post, Chad Jackson discusses the value of running virtual and physical sensors together.
