Digital twin

What is a digital twin? Simplified you could say: a digital image of real things consisting of many different data, algorithms, and models. These ensure that data can be compared with reality in real time. In order to make this data usable for all systems, standardized data formats such as AutomationML, Industrie 4.0 Asset Administration Shell or OPC UA are required. For virtual commissioning, it is necessary to combine the digital images of the manufactured product as well as the production plant with the help of standardized and harmonized data formats.
