What is the Digital Twin?
Digital twin is the ability to make a virtual representation of the physical elements and the dynamics of how an Internet of Things device operates and works. It's more than a blueprint, it's more than a schematic. It's not just a picture. It's a lot more than a pair of ‘virtual reality’ glasses. It's a virtual representation of both the elements and the dynamics of how an Internet of Things device responds throughout its lifecycle. It can be a jet engine, a building, process on factory floor, and much, much more.

IBM Watson Internet of Things: Introducing Digital Twin

  1. 1. What is the Digital Twin? Digital twin is the ability to make a virtual representation of the physical elements and the dynamics of how an Internet of Things device operates and works. It's more than a blueprint, it's more than a schematic. It's not just a picture. It's a lot more than a pair of ‘virtual reality’ glasses. It's a virtual representation of both the elements and the dynamics of how an Internet of Things device responds throughout its lifecycle. It can be a jet engine, a building, process on factory floor, and much, much more. INTRODUCING DIGITAL TWIN Chris O’Connor, GM IBM Genius of Things IBM IoT Headquarters Munich, Germany Feb 16, 2017
  2. 2. ne example, it's an g of all of its dynamics, whether trons that move or whether it's at's moving itself. It's about g the elements that compose it mics of how that device is put ne correctly, a digital twin will design, build and operations of onstructed in a single lifecycle. It eability and transparency to h in that lifecycle in what is ‘Digital Thread’
  3. 3. phase is where engineering tooling ther, bringing together physical hysical bill of materials, pulling tual elements; you heard about the the cars and all the different nd the chips that are there. Being dinate and collaborate those o a single facility of operational sign that is designed to bring out quality product. Operational Insights ➜ Better Design
  4. 4. phase, it's about yield. It's about ng how the devices that make the uence the product's tolerances and designs. And, it's about better ng to drive the correct tolerances outcomes that you want to see for that you're actually making. Continuous Learning ➜ Better Manufacturing
  5. 5. rd, a digital twin facilitates the tion of the product as well. e, products go through different ts, they deal with things like d, they have different tolerances ft, they drift. And so your digital o drift along with those products and that feedback when done t only facilitates the operations of but helps facilitate better design manufacturing by the lessons that and the recalibration that takes the way. Informed Service & Support ➜ Better Operations
  6. 6. There's essential capabilities that must be present for you to be active in a digital twin. First, you have to apply analytics as every step. The amount of information that we're dealing with to apply digital twin to a small device or to a complex device such as an automobile or an aircraft is staggering. Analytics has to be both real time, it has to be operational, it has to be quality, it has to be predictive oriented in its nature of use in the near and distant future. Analytics at Every Step
  7. 7. And then last, you're going to apply industry context. The ‘Things’ you look at might be put to use in many ways with different use patterns and different environments and tolerances. You may actually use the same product differently in two different industries and have two different digital twins for that one product based on how the industry uses that product, whether it's a pump that's used in oil and gas or whether it's a pump that's used in municipal water, the outcome is based on the industry context of how that device is going to be used. Industry Context
  8. 8. The data that comes from a digital twin needs to be open. You have to be able to access it from a variety of different sources. You have to be able to pull it together into a federated model, and you have to be able to bring it together so that you can get that interaction, that dynamics to play. It's not just a schematic you're making. It's not just a picture you're making. You're actually making a dynamic model that you're going to shift as you go through both the design, the build and the operations phase with the lifecycle of that product. Open and Federated Data
  9. 9. At IBM we start with the Watson IOT Platform! While many talk of capabilities and opportunities for Digital Twin, recognize that our approach is built upon Watson IOT Platform, known as the leader in cognitive capabilities. This takes Digital Twin to another level with thinking, reasoning, and learning. It is where we bring the data in, we connect to a variety of different data sources, direct devices themselves
  10. 10. First, we connect to engineering capabilities. We bring data in from through partners such as Aris from the physical side; we bring logical data in from our own portfolio; and around the IoT platform. We start to build context of the relationships of the information both over time and relationships to each other. This is looking at deeper dependences or systems-of- systems. Second, we apply cognitive insights. We operate on the data to understand its variances and tolerances and how it's used. We apply techniques in machine to machine, natural language processing, video, acoustical analytics and more to help understand the dynamics of the information that you're being presented. So, when you have the information and you have cognition taking a place on it, what you can then do -- which is the third step which is the most valuable step --is you can dynamically recalibrate your environment. So, a digital twin, when operating correctly, not only represents a picture, it's not only something that you can see in glasses and explode, but it actually works to dynamically recalibrate your environment affecting the design, the build and the operations phase of everything you do around that particular device.

  11. 11. The first place that you go see one at Twin in action is to visit our own IBM Watson IoT center. You can get your own picture of how it works and we can talk to you about how you can apply it to your business. Of course, we have many examples to share but this shows that IBM can put this into place at any scale both large and small working with what equipment and technologies you have in place today.
  12. 12. Our IBM Watson IoT center in Munich is also where we partner with dozens of companies to bring new approaches to Digital Twin. We've instrumented several of the floors, with partners, to collect information and the interactions of the different types of office capabilities that are there.
  13. 13. …we apply our digital twin models across both how we can show you dynamic recalibration around comfort, we can show it around efficiency of how the workspace is laid out
  14. 14. …and the interactions of the different types of office capabilities that are there.
  15. 15. …And last, we can show you the economic impact or the environmental impact of how the representation takes place at the same time.
