On a regular basis new concepts such as Digital Twins in Scheduling are introduced. Forbes Magazine defines the idea as:
“ …a digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. This pairing of the virtual and physical worlds allows analysis of data and monitoring of systems to head off problems before they even occur, prevent downtime, develop new opportunities and even plan for the future by using simulations.”
Often one is uncertain about whether the new term applies to a particular area, and if it does, what it implies exactly.
In this blog I will cover the concept of a Digital Twin from a scheduling perspective.
