Digital Twin Overview
A digital twin is a virtual machine dynamic representation that provides real-time online equivalent of a physical object or process. It uses simulation models to profile, predict, and optimize the performance of industrial assets through the use of data and intelligence. Since it enables the automatic vehicle control and monitoring of industrial assets & processes such as product development, design & manufacturing planning, investment performance management, business & operation optimization, and so on, the digital twin is an important component of the Industrial Internet of Things.
A digital twin is a visual depiction that behaves as the digital counter - part of the physical object or process in real time. Although this idea first was proposed by Michael Grieves of the University of Michigan in 2002, the very first practical meaning of digital twin was developed by NASA inside an effort to improve physical model simulation of space probe in 2010. Digital twins are indeed the result of continuous innovation in brand engineering and manufacturing activities. Product drawings and engineering specifications managed to evolve from hand-drawn to computer-aided drafting/design to model-based systems engineering.
