Digital twins enable enterprises to model and simulate buildings, products, manufacturing lines, facilities and processes. This can improve performance, quickly flag quality errors and support better decision-making. Today, most digital twin projects are one-off efforts. A team may create one digital twin for a new gearbox and start all over when modeling a wind turbine that includes this part or the business process that repairs this part.
Alisha Mittal, Practice Director at Everest Group, said, “Many digital twin projects today are in pilot stages or are focused on very singular assets or processes.”
