Digital Twin Technology


This module introduce the learner to Digital Twins, which are a virtual replica of the manufacturing process, and can, not only speed up the planning of a new product, but also support training, continuous improvement and maintenance planning when combined with IIoT and other technologies like AR and VR. Learners in the module will gain practical experience on building a digital twin and extracting data to support decision-making.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Appraise the benefits of adopting digital twin technologies when planning a new manufacturing process

  2. Discuss how Industrial Internet o Things (IIoT) and digital twin technology combine to give a live model of a manufacturing processes

  3. Investigate the use of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) for the design, optimisation and planning of manufacturing processes

  4. Develop a 3D model of a manufacturing process
