The digital twin as a milestone of digitalisation
In times of Industry 4.0 and digitalisation the volume of data from is constantly increasing. Powerful shop floor solutions and IoT platforms generate a large amount of information. To generate added value from the data, it is necessary to link the information in a meaningful way and to present it visually in a 3D CAD model for the user and start automatic process workflows. The digital twin serves as a virtual 3D model of a machine, the entire factory or a building. This is enriched with information across all IT systems and gives insights into the digital factory or building.
