Create added digital value

The Digital Twin

The concept of the 'digital product' is a prerequisite for the Digital Twin.

Digital product concept

The concept of the 'digital product' depicts the product with its product data, and how the data is organized, linked and consistently mapped in different systems. The 'Digital Product' concept links the product data from all departments, even beyond the boundaries of the company.

Digital Twin

A digital twin is the virtual image of a real product. It connects the real and the virtual world and supports all phases of the product life cycle. It allows for, among other things, production to be better planned and for the behavior of real products to be simulated, so that they can be marketed more quickly.

A digital twin requires three elements: 

  • The real object
  • The digital representation
  • The information that links the two together

Efficient approach

  • Define what added value the digital twin should bring.
    (Business Case / Business Model) 
  • Structure and organize data and data sources that are necessary for the digital twin. Ensure consistent processes and data structures.
    (Digital Product concept) 
  • Digitize real product data, link it with the virtual product.
