Digital Twin: Supply Chain Visibility – CII Deep Work Virtual Internship Project – Team Intensity
A digital twin is a digital replica of a living or non-living physical entity. Digital twin refers to a digital replica of potential and actual physical assets, processes, people, places, systems and devices that can be used for various purposes.
Digital twins are today coming of age. Fueled by the confluence of progress in the internet of things, big data, cloud computing, open APIs, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality, once-static digital models and simulations can now truly come alive in real time to help predict future situations, the state of physical things, and even the world around us.
Today, the engineering, manufacturing, energy, and automotive industries are leading the way in leveraging digital twins to manage their most critical assets, followed by healthcare, the public sector, and even consumer retail. As the requisite technologies continue to become more readily accessible, the logistics sector is only just now beginning its digital twin journey and early examples of the first Supply Chain facilities and logistics hubs developed using digital twins are beginning to emerge.
