Digital twins are virtual representations of physical equipment, products and objects. Data from the IIoT is connected to the twin to update the designs performance and productivity. Inputting this data into simulations can identify new use cases or failure points, optimize operations and inform changes to future designs.

GE and ANSYS have already implemented digital twins in the past with significant success. For instance, the GuardEon molded-case circuit breaker is a low-voltage circuit breaker designed for industrial applications. GE engineers were able to study the circuit breaker using ANSYS CAE software. The result was that the team learned much more from the product than if they used physical testing alone.
