Video: What Is a Digital Twin? How Intelligent Data Models Can Shape the Built World 2023, December

On May 7, 2020, Konstruktionsspraxis is organizing the Smart Engineering Day. The focus is on smart methods and tools for future product development. One topic is digital twins and how they can be introduced step by step. Jakob Trauer, research assistant at the Chair for Product Development and Lightweight Construction at the Technical University of Munich, will present the procedural model that was developed in cooperation with industrial companies.

Virtual models on the rise

The background to this is that in an increasingly globalized and digitized world, it is essential for companies to develop in a cost- and time-efficient and, above all, customer-oriented way to ensure the success of their products. Due to the increasing digitalization of today's products, in addition to the physical product, there are also more and more virtual models of various forms. Their ever larger amounts of data also often have a high degree of networking and in turn create networks with other products or their models.

The goal: to increase the potential of data volumes

A so-called digital twin can be used to exploit the potential of this data. A digital twin is understood here to mean a virtual, dynamic image of a physical system, which is connected to it over the entire life cycle for bidirectional data exchange. This ensures a constant, consistent comparison between the real behavior of physical products and the virtual image. Digital twins can be used along the entire product life cycle and in a wide variety of applications to effectively and efficiently retrieve the "data treasure".

Step by step to the digital twin

At the Chair for Product Development and Lightweight Design at the Technical University of Munich, a consistent definition for digital twins was first developed. As part of an industrial case study with a heating company, a generic process model for the conception and implementation of a digital twin was developed. The model consists of five steps - project initiation and goal definition, situation analysis, goal conception, analysis of the implementation partners and implementation support. This results in a target concept and implementation requirements. In order to support the applicability of the model, a template was created that leads through all steps. Our speaker Jakob Trauer will present this template at the Smart Engineering Day on May 7th in Würzburg.
