Digital Information Twin

In contrast to Digital Engineering Twin, Digital Information Twin does not simulate any product properties, it simply stores product documentation.

Digital Information Twin stores the most important information about a product virtually in a single location. Any product information required can thus be accessed more quickly.

 

WHAT IS IT?

Digital Information Twin synchronises the information and documentation relating to all the components of a product in a single platform and in a digital context. It serves as a handy life cycle log or long-term memory about a product or machine.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

Digital Information Twin contains information that is primarily of use to users and service engineers. For example, operating manuals, service instructions or spare parts lists. In addition, the information is stored individually on a product-by-product basis: The specific configuration of a product or machine can be depicted.

WHAT ARE ITS BENEFITS?

Service engineers and users no longer have to search for documents such as spare parts lists or maintenance instructions. All the information is quickly accessible in a digital format so that maintenance tasks, for example, can be carried out.
