It is #IoTFriday and the digital twin is our topic. A digital twin is a digital representation of a solution (physical device/service). It is made up of information from the existing physical product, sensor data, real-time data, predictions and/or manufacturing data. The digital twin can be used throughout the entire product life cycle.
We look at the effects of NOT using a digital twin in the different phases of the product life cycle. Consequences are felt throughout all phases and we conclude that we actually cannot do without the digital twin. The input and output of a digital twin is data and we find three types of data to be used: customer data, business data and diagnostic or development data.
Keep watching #IoTFriday and bring on new topics!
