The increased digitization and tendency to automate complex manufacturing processes have dredged up technologies that date back to the 70s. Digital Twin is one of those disruptive technologies that went through multiple advancements and made colossal headway to be recently named as a strategic technology by Gartner. Manufacturers aspire to digital twinning and virtual commissioning.
Digital twin technology has given a lift to virtual commissioning – a practice of building a 3D virtual replica of a real manufacturing environment. The appearance of virtual commissioning was influenced by the fact that the actual commissioning could take up to 20% of the entire project delivery.
