Digital Twins, 7,5 credits

Digital twin is a concept that is used to depict a digital replica of a product in use. This concept is enabled by the enhanced ubiquity of sensors and connectivity of products, coupled with increased computing power and storage of data. By having a duplicate of the individual product in operation it is possible to see in real time the health of individual products and components and to apply analysis and simulations of different scenarios for maintenance, as well as support the development of the next generation of products.
The purpose of the course is to enable students to acquire knowledge and understanding about the Digital Twin concept, as well as to provide tools and methods suitable to develop a Digital Twin.
The course includes a mix of theory, methods and tools for Digital Twins, which are applied in an case of implementing and operating a digital replica of a product.
