According to Aaron Berg, River Logic’s VP of Strategy, a Digital Planning Twin is essentially a comprehensive model that encapsulates the entire value chain of a business. Within this model, intricate details about the capabilities and constraints of the business are defined, spanning from manufacturing options to operational capacities.

The core essence of this model lies in its ability to answer critical questions about optimal production strategies. For instance, it can suggest the most efficient way to manufacture products to maximize profits or minimize costs based on the provided data.

The ultimate goal is to craft a well-informed plan that aligns with the capabilities of the business while meeting predefined objectives.
