Organisations are increasingly seeing the potential in digital twins. CIOs are recognising their potential for creating virtual, highly detailed, and totally faithful reproductions in software of their real world assets, like a factory or complex, real-time industrial workflows. And in particular, CIOs are exploring the value of digital twin technologies to provide insights into the supply chain. They are using digital twin technology to optimise what, in the light of a pandemic and a major European war, are often broken supplier networks.
Informing this move to digital twin technology is the understanding that the technology can have more impact in a supply chain context when employed in conjunction with knowledge graphs. These technologies, in combination, can provide powerful insights into supply chain optimisation.
