Why Is Operational Data a Foundation for Digital Twins?

Perry Zalevsky

Senior Director, Industry, OSIsoft

There certainly is a lot of interest in Digital Twins today. While the term may be a bit new, simulating manufacturing and operational processes through the use of computer models is not. One of the main requirements has always been the need for good, high-quality operational data. But the data alone is not enough – it requires validation, context and the ability to easily integrate it with a variety of other systems. Getting the data right as a foundational piece as part of a Digital Twin is a necessary step to success.
