“A digital twin of organisation (DTO) allows us to simulate different scenarios, with the aim of improving decision-making based on a correct interrelation of processes and data from the different areas of a company”.”
“A digital twin of organisations (DTO) is a virtual representation of a physical product or process that is used to understand and predict the performance characteristics of a physical process or product. Digital duplicates are used throughout the product lifecycle to simulate, predict and optimise the product and production system before investing in prototypes and physical assets”. SIEMENS definition.
A digital twin of organisation (DTO) is a digital representation of a real-world entity or system. A digital twin implementation is an encapsulated object or software model that reflects a single physical object, process, organisation, person or other abstraction. Data from several digital twins can be aggregated to obtain a composite view of several real-world entities, such as a power plant or a city, and their related processes”. Gartner definition.
