The Virtual Twin Experience

Real and Virtual Worlds Together

What Is a Virtual Twin Experience?

A virtual twin experience is a representation of the real world based on mathematical models and scientific laws, not just a digital copy of it. It combines the virtual, in the form of an abstract model of an object and the real, in the form of data sources coming from the enterprise, the Internet of Things, and the cloud.

The virtual twin experience enables a closed-loop connection between the virtual and real worlds. Stakeholders continuously experiment, derive knowledge, and optimize it by exploring all possibilities and scenarios.

How are virtual twins being used today?

Unify Virtual and Real Worlds

The virtual twin experience enables organizations to create and see what they want to accomplish through virtual modeling, simulation and visualization, which can then be implemented and deployed in the real world. Data from the real world augment the virtual twin model and maintain it as an identical, dynamic copy used to improve all aspects of real world operations. This convergence of the virtual and real worlds and the continuous cycle of information between the two achieve a closed loop allowing the following benefits:

  • Accelerate sustainable innovation and excellence
  • Support creation of value network
  • Empower the workforce of the future.

How can the 3DEXPERIENCE Twin facilitate successful transformation?

Bring Learnings and Experiences from The Real World

Reduce the distance between the real and virtual worlds to zero by leveraging all digital assets throughout the lifecycle of your processes and operations. Real life data combined with data-driven and model-based solutions powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enable stakeholders to simulate and evaluate impacts before manufacturing products and services or deploying processes.

Learning experiences from processes and operations help organizations understand how things behave in the real world and improve virtual simulation effectiveness for everything from engineering and construction to operations in hazardous locations such as nuclear power plants or mines.

How can manufacturers evaluate risks earlier and ensure better yield?
