Digital Twin Solutions can revolutionize your manufacturing processes and global supply chains. Emerging technologies in Manufacturing IoT and Smart Factories are being rapidly introduced. Digital Twin data is used to open up new product opportunities, track locations, suggest maintenance, improve processes, and help with re-shoring efforts. With integrated visualization tools, we’ll help you bring it all together and navigate the options.

In essence, data needs to be actionable in real-time for operational professionals to execute the appropriate behavior to ensure a smooth and efficient flow of material through the supply chain. The persistence of such actionable data provides the ability to note trends and conduct further analysis that leads to improvements in operations.

Seem complicated?  Here’s how we help you unravel the complexity. 

Step 1: Create Context

Imagine being able to visualize your operation from a bird’s eye view, walkthrough, or focus on specific areas, all while keeping everything in the proper dimensions and perspective. By integrating data from physical assets and enterprise systems, you will have unprecedented visibility and control over production environments.


The digital twin is built using 360 degrees of data collected from your physical site. We make quick work of the reality capture process by combining 3D laser scanning, 360° photography, and collected data to provide a snapshot of the facility layout, condition, and components. This provides you with the ability to view the entire facility, from manufacturing operations to logistics, using any browser-enabled device.


Digitized schematic, operational, and IoT data is replicated into a single view for easy team collaboration and analysis with vendors and contractors. It’s easily shared using the VDC/BIM, multi-disciplinary engineering practices, and distributed systems commonly used today. The digital twin allows manufacturing organizations to capture, analyze, and visualize key operational data and apply computing capabilities via connectivity across products, plants, systems, and machines.


Improve the interoperability of digital twin data using smart sensors and operations technology (OT). The digital twin provides a platform to brings together human-machine interfaces (HMI), supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), programmable logic controllers (PLCs), and industrial control systems (ICSs) with a company’s enterprise resource planning and supply chain logistic systems (ERPII). Together, this information enables machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and data analysis, creating the potential to achieve greater efficiencies, better quality, and safer operations.

Step 2: Build Your Twin

By combining powerful Models/CAD, visualization tools, PLM, and IIoT technologies together, fully integrated, powerful closed-loop digital twins emerge.

Process Twin

Explore simulation scenarios including separating a digital twin from its physical corresponding device, establishing a simulated environment in which the digital twin can interact, and simulate interactions with the twin.

  • Visualize and analyze work cells, processes, and machinery
  • Improve preventative maintenance or troubleshoot equipment
  • Gain performance efficiencies. Increase uptime, decrease manufacturing costs
  • Enhance safety in processes and procedures
  • Accelerate product development and reduce defects

Manufacturing is becoming increasingly digital and digital twins can be applied during the engineering, design, production, and operations phases of a product lifecycle to improve products and predict or detect problems.

Site Twin

Apart from the operational data, the digital twins capture environmental data such as location, configuration, financial models, etc. which helps in predicting future anomalies and in optimizing operations.

  • Identify improvement opportunities or share best practices
  • Create spatial awareness for social distancing and detecting equipment collision
  • Validate load on facility structures to ensure safety and reduce costly mistakes
  • Plan site retrofits, relocate equipment and expedite line changes
  • Facilitate internal and external communications with staff and customers

One of the chief promises of the Internet of Things is to bridge the gap between the digital and physical worlds. Digital Twin Solutions enable you to inspect and compare detailed and dimensionally accurate physical space with real-time operational data.

Step 3: Scale Your Efforts

Leveraging a Digital Twin is a straightforward way to tackle technical planning, cost/risk projects, system integration, and verification/validation.


Facility leaders, especially in industrial/ manufacturing settings are using these emergent technologies to ensure environmental compliance, study asset function, observe personnel work paths, etc. With a digital twin implementation, it’s easy to monitor, track, and control these industrial systems digitally.


The rapid proliferation of business analytics and business intelligence capabilities means better, cheaper, faster becomes more obtainable in manufacturing.  The visibility offered by this digital transformation makes benchmarking a core focus. The Digital Twin represents a blend of operational improvements and IoT technologies deployed to achieve the optimal utilization of assets, streamlined operations, and productivity improvements.


It’s important that new technologies lay the groundwork for new business models.  We aim to be strategic partners with you. Instead of “starting from scratch” each time the factory changes, we enable you to replace only those specific areas of interest.  Your data can be modified and customized to work with other middleware and edge software to bridge your data feeds, applications, and the digital twin.

    Are you ready to make your factory “smarter” with connected sensors and API integrations? We’ll help you to make sense of the data with a Digital Twin in the context of your facility.
