The Gemini makersMillions of things will soon have digital twins
- This digital twin is identical in every respect and is used to design the control units, test them, simulate how to make them and program production machines.
- “It is a digital twin of the entire value chain,” says Jan Mrosik, the chief executive of Siemens’s Digital Factory Division.
- For example, suppliers could be asked to submit a digital twin of their product so that it can be tested in a manufacturer’s virtual factory before an order is placed.
- It is already a requirement at the Amberg plant for suppliers to deliver a digital twin along with their product to help installation.
- Just about any product could have a unique identifier that links to production data, if not a full digital twin, reckons Thomas Körmendi, the chief executive of Kezzler, a Norwegian company that produces secure product codes using an algorithm.
THE factory of the future will be a building stuffed full of robots making robots. A factory in Amberg, a small town in Bavaria, is not quite that, but it gets close.
