Intelligence series: How can Digital Twins aid predictive maintenance?

Digital Twins are virtual representations of a physical asset, process or system. Sensor data is fed into a 3D model allowing for the asset to be simulated and monitored remotely. Digital Twins have been closely related to Building Information Modelling (BIM) systems but are slightly different.

Digital twins are virtual, real-time representations of physical assets, processes and systems. In comparison to other conventional simulations, which only represent purely virtual scenarios, digital twins are intrinsically linked to a physical asset and aim to represent the asset in real-time.
