As Industry 4.0 revolutionizes how we interact with technology, machines, and the world around us, digital twins are set to make a huge impact.
This report examines the foundations required to build and implement a valuable digital twin – specifically, the golden thread.
What is a Digital Twin?
Digital twins provide an evolving profile of the historical and current behavior of a physical object or process.
In simple terms, they monitor and model how people and objects interact with their environments to provide enhanced insights, improve performance, and optimize decision-making.
What is the Golden Thread?
The golden thread of information refers to an accurate and up-to-date record of data.
It introduces formal processes to maintain digital information, assure accuracy, and ensure accessibility and security.
In a nutshell, it should act as a live repository, linking all asset data.
Digital twins work best when there is a seamless flow of data from the beginning of the project throughout its lifecycle and beyond.
75% of companies from various industries across six countries have already implemented or plan to implement a digital twin within a year.
Asite’s goal is to facilitate digital twins by enabling the flow of information between systems and creating a network of digital transformation partners.
With digital twins set to usher in a new, exciting, and almost prescient digital era, how can organizations create and maintain a successful digital twin?
