A digital twin is an up-to-date representation of a real physical asset in operation. Creating a digital twin enables you to generate sensor data for a predictive maintenance workflow, helping determine the optimal time for maintenance and reducing downtime while preventing equipment failure. This ebook introduces how digital twins work and when to deploy them.

While reading this ebook, you will learn:

  • Why to use a digital twin, and how they work
  • When to use a data-driven model (such as a survival or degradation model), a physics-based model, or when to use both
  • How to create digital twins with MATLAB® and Simulink®
