AVEVA produces industry insight paper into creating a reliable digital twin
11 Apr 2018
AVEVA have produced a white paper reflecting on how findings from research company Gartner have identified the importance of the digital twin in industrial equipment and process manufacturing industries.
Digital twins are a powerful combination of data (for example, location and temperature), model (metadata, classification, composition and structure), monitoring (state or alerts) and a unique identifier that will have a specific correspondence to an object. From this, a digital twin represents a digital representation of a physical object.
A well-designed digital twin, one based on business priorities, therefore has the potential to significantly improve enterprise decision making. They can enhance data insights and help in the development of new business models to bring short, medium and long benefits.
Short-term benefits include a shift from preventative to predictive (condition-based) maintenance. Medium term benefits include enhanced product development and improved new product simulation. Long term benefits include new advice generation and even the suggestion of new products.
A full appreciation of the importance of intelligent data management, digital continuity and the creation of a reliable digital twin can be found in the white paper now available from AVEVA, a specialist provider of digital twin technology.
Based on research from Gartner, this is a fully comprehensive guide into the importance of intelligent data management and creating a reliable digital twin particularly applicable for the oil, gas, power, chemical, pulp and paper and pharmaceutical industries.
The guide explains how and why enterprise architecture and technology innovator leaders should factor their digital twins into their Internet of Things architecture and strategy.
