Technology continues to influence business operations across various industries. The manufacturing industry is perhaps one of the most influenced by technology, as its incorporation of state-of-the-art technologies is enabling manufacturers to streamline production processes, foster innovation, reduce operational expenses, and elevate product quality to meet the growing demands of the market. With increasing versatility, the widespread adoption of these technologies across diverse facets of manufacturing is on the horizon.
One such manifestation of IoT technology, is seen via Digital Twins, a digital model that serves as a virtual replica of a physical object, typically a piece of equipment or machinery. This digital replica continuously receives real-time data from the actual counterparts, which facilitates comprehensive monitoring of manufacturing equipment or entire production lines, enabling predictive scheduling for maintenance and repairs. Digital twins are increasingly utilized to experiment with operational changes and assess their potential impact, contributing to a proactive approach in optimizing manufacturing processes.
