What business challenges does a Digital Twin solve?
The use of Digital Twins are proliferating according to Gartner research, but it is not always clear what business problems these digital twins are solving. Some of the obvious use cases are simulation, predictive operations/quality/maintenance, and condition monitoring. We have some examples in the IIC Digital Twins for Industrial Applications white paper referenced below, but we've also seen IoT enabled Supply Chain Digital Twins and Digital Twins of Organizations (DTO). The Supply Chain Digital Twin is solving a short term inventory planning and optimization problem. Do you have other examples of the problems that Digital Twins are solving for you?
