What are Digital Twins?
The Most Accurate Depiction of Reality
- Digital Twins are computer-generated representations of real-world systems. -These models are designed to imitate the behavior and performance of their real-life counterparts.
- By inputting real-time data into a Digital Twin, the model can replicate the actual system and even predict short-term and long-term outcomes.
- Digital Twin models are employed to find the optimal configuration and solutions for improved performance.
How is a Digital Twin Delivered?
PMI delivers digital twins to clients as a user-friendly software application or cloud-based platform. The digital twin can be easily accessed through a web browser or mobile application, allowing clients to experience a virtual representation of their physical assets or systems in real-time. We creates these digital twins by combining data from various sources, including sensors, simulations, and CAD models, to provide a comprehensive and precise representation. PMI also offers training and support during the delivery process to ensure clients effectively utilize their digital twin.
