Digital twins, built on Predix Platform, provide a software representation of a physical asset. Digital twin technology enables companies to better understand, predict, and optimize the performance of each unique asset. A digital twin can represent an individual asset, an integrated system of assets, or a fleet of assets.
A single source of truth
Digital twins running on Predix Platform build on the Predix Platform asset model. Digital twins become a single source of truth for all information related to an asset, including data about past and present state, condition, and performance. In addition, early warnings and prediction could utilize not only the individual data, but also data from similar digital twins-leveraging the power of Predix Platform. Digital twin industrial use cases typically target maintenance and equipment health, predictive maintenance as well as operations and performance optimization.
Digital twins are typically used in applications for maintenance and equipment health, predictive maintenance as well as operations and performance optimization.
Asset manufacturers and operators can uniquely leverage digital twins, built on Predix Platform, to represent the lifecycle of assets and systems across design, build, run, operate, and service phases, removing barriers to insight and innovation.
Three elements of a digital twin
An asset model that describes the asset structure and components often expressed as a hierarchy.
Analytics that predict, describe, and prescribe the behavior of the asset in addition to enabling automated behaviors.
A knowledge base of asset data (eg time-series data) and derived insights (e.g inferred relationships).
