TSMC Restarts Operations After Virus Takes Down Factories

Digital replicas of living or non-living physical entities, digital twins are making their way into the business world right along with more mainstream concepts like artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), and the Internet of Things (IoT).

In a new report on technology trends, Deloitte opens up the discussion by talking about how digital twins can bridge the gap between the physical and the digital, and points out that the idea of using virtual models to optimize processes, products or services isn’t new.

What is new is how organizations are learning that increasingly sophisticated simulation and modeling capabilities, power visualization, better interoperability and IoT sensors—and more widely available platforms and tools—are enabling the creation of simulations that are “more detailed and dynamic than ever,” Deloitte says in its report.

“As capabilities and sophistication grow, expect to see more organizations use digital twins to optimize processes, make data-driven decisions in real time, and design new products, services and business models,” Deloitte adds.

“The analyzed operational information is to be fed into the digital twin simulations,” it continues, “which can identify opportunities for workers to perform predictive maintenance, optimize output and limit waste from substandard products.”

CIPS mentions DHL’s launch of a digital twin warehouse in Asia, where, by combining IoT and analytics, the customer can monitor and simulate the state and behavior of the warehouse assets in real-time, resolve issues as they occur and improve both safety and productivity.
