Course description

Digital Twin: Technologies of Creating a Real World Virtually Into Practical Applications

In the fourth industrial revolution, the digital twin is one of the critical technologies that is gaining prominence. The digital twin is the simulation technology that integrates multidisciplinary, multi-physical quantities, multi scales, and multi-probabilities by making full use of a physical model, sensor update, operation history, and other data. During this course, learners will engage in how to create digital twins and utilize them to model, simulate, and manage industrial processes. Digital twins give information on every component of a manufacturing process, allowing you to improve the efficiency and efficacy of your production line and equipment. It may be used to monitor, study, and analyze physical assets like buildings, processes, and systems, as well as to conduct research and development.
