With a Digital Information Twin (DIT), high-quality technical and service information about a product, machine or plant is stored centrally in one platform and made available to users digitally. The information is stored permanently. A DIT therefore not only represents the original factory condition of a product, but also focuses on the entire product life cycle. It thus serves as a life cycle protocol of a product or machine.
The Digital Information Twin primarily contains comprehensive (service) information. In contrast to a Digital Engineering Twin, no product functions are simulated. The aim is to achieve a comprehensive, digital understanding of individual products, machines and plants and to use this for future maintenance and service measures.
