Manufacturing Digital Twin

A Factory Digital Twin using Digital Twin Studio, represents a virtual replica of the actual manufacturing facility including all of its special constraints, equipment, process flows, batching, changeover and tooling. The Digital Twin performs similarly to the live operation, exhibits the same behavior when subjected to the plant constraints and accounts for both capacity and manpower constraints.


A Data-Driven Factory Digital Twin takes the implementation to the next level by allowing the Digital Twin to load actual data sets (Current and Historical) from the active ERP/MRP/SAP and generate both predictive and prescriptive analytics within the manufacturing facility based on scheduling, maintenance, and constraints. The Data-Driven Digital Twin™ enables you to analyze historical performance, improve current operations, mitigate risk, forecast expansion and optimize future operations.


Benefits of Data-Driven Digital Twin for Manufacturing

  • Schedule Analysis and Optimization
  • Identify & reduce bottlenecks and constraints
  • Automation feasibility analysis and material handling optimization
  • Capacity analysis and growth projection
  • Greenfield, Brownfield analysis and design
  • WIP reduction and optimizations 
  • Expand Visibility
