Digital twins promise to bring digital transformation across various industries by harmonizing data flows between applications and users. However, this interest has also driven growth in various trade groups, standards bodies, and consortiums to ensure interoperability. The concern is that the rise of so many standards could slow down meaningful adoption.

Such concerns form the backdrop to the Digital Twin Consortium (DTC) announcement last month of a significant open source effort to facilitate digital twin collaboration across different groups on open source projects, open source code, and open source collateral to address this Tower of Babel

Looking back, we saw the first digital twin concepts being deployed in manufacturing to fulfil the needs of service engineers to possess adequate information on an entire product or parts of a product for maintenance.

As practical examples, French navy ships developed in the last decade would only set sail once the digital twin was completed. Airplanes are documented according to the International Air Transport Association (IATA) specifications to support maintenance and repairs by engineers with basic training.
