A new manufacturing trend you may not have considered!
April 25, 2020
It seems today that the Digital Twin is becoming about as ubiquitous as IoT devices. The term ‘digital twin’ refers to a digital replica of a living or non-living physical entity, such as assets, processes, people, places, systems and devices. Quality management is a top consideration for manufacturers. Continuous monitoring of product data is critical these days, and a digital twin can monitor and model every part of the production process. You’re able to identify where quality issues may occur as well as analyse the composition of the product, saving a great deal of time and money moving forwards while guaranteeing better products and components.
Conversions of production to other products or smaller series and runs can also be run through first in the digital twin. It allows you to model how product customisation will affect the production processes. Digital twin technology is undoubtedly a gamechanger, and it’s already having significant beneficial effects across many manufacturing sectors.
