What is a digital twin?
A digital twin in a cross-industry sense is a digital representation of a thing. Digital twins can be anything from a digital representation of a building to a factory machine to a human heart. The term is beginning to take on a life of its own outside of the traditional manufacturing definition.
In engineering and manufacturing, a digital twin is a digital representation of a physical part, product, or machine with relevant data to replicate real-world patterns or behaviors.
