Digital Twins are about creating a digital model of a physical system and nurturing it until it is a clone of what happens in the real world. Digital Twins add value when they have been validated by using a good monitoring system.
Bullant Filters are an example of a spreadsheet-based digital twin for a processing line. However, specialising in the process industry means that systems that are often so complicated that it becomes impossible to optimise them by using just a spreadsheet. In these circumstances, the only way to verify and improve performance is to model and monitor the system using specialist software.
We use discrete event simulation software for complex factory, logistics and warehouse optimisation tasks. We can use Digital Twins to confirm performance and productivity benefits of proposed activities before committing to high-cost assets or people.
We can provide a cost effective Digital Twin strategy using the following;
