A digital twin is a cross-domain digital model that accurately represents a product, production process or performance of a product or production system in operation.
The digital twin evolves and continuously updates to reflect any change to the physical counterpart throughout the counterpart’s lifecycle, creating a closed-loop of feedback in a virtual environment that offers companies the best possible design for their products and production processes.
PLM-S refers to a set of three digital twins: Product, Production and Performance. Each of these digital twins consists of multiple virtual models appropriate for the given product and production system.
Accurate digital twins comprehend the interactions between all aspects of the product and production system. The Siemens PLM Digital Enterprise Software, which was built on a Innovation platform, enables the creation of the most accurate, comprehensive digital twins possible. No other company offers the breadth or depth that we do, particularly withe electronics, software and factory automation.
