eBook - Managing the Context of Product Complexity Using the Digital Twin

Learning about the Digital Twin can be a daunting task. There are many competing definitions out there. Where you work within the lifecycle of a product and your intent as to how you want to use it in your business, will greatly determine which definition resonates with you.

But let’s make one thing clear—there is a difference between a Digital Model and the Digital Twin. As this eBook is dedicated the value of the Digital Twin for the maintenance of products (assets), please do not let any vendor try to convince you that a Digital Model—an engineering picture, if you will—created during the development of a product that has not been made yet, is a Digital Twin.

Why? So many things have happened to that product before it’s ever been installed at your site. It’s been designed, re-designed, it’s been through a manufacturing process, and things like exceptions, part replacements, supplier changes, and engineering design changes have occurred. Only when that product is done with its manufacturing process, and its configuration, including electrical, mechanical, and software has been recorded, can the first Digital Twin be created.

With that as a backdrop, this ebook explores the opportunity available for Operations and Maintenance for the Digital Twin.
