Digital Twins are found throughout the asset lifecycle, from design and engineering to operations, and across the value chain from demand forecasting to planning and scheduling to distribution.
Plant and process manufacturing facilities are at the intersection of the asset lifecycle and value chain and as a result, are the primary focus of Digital Twin activity. To maximize results, manufacturers must first understand the different types of twins, their construction, their challenges and limitations, and what’s needed from vendors. Once an organization clearly recognizes the nuances of these elements, it can align its twin program with financial objectives.
