The vision of the Digital Twin itself refers to a comprehensive physical and functional description together with all available operational data of a component, product or system, which includes all information which could be useful in all – the current and subsequent – lifecycle phases.
The Digital Twin refers to a description by a collection of well aligned executable models of a component, product or system with the following features:
The Digital Twin is the connected collection through several simulation models of appropriate digital artifacts including engineering information, operation information and behavioral descriptions. The Digital Twin simulation designs are specific to their planned use and apply the appropriate fidelity to solve the issue.
The Digital Twin evolves along the entire life cycle along with the true scheme and integrates the understanding about it presently accessible.
