In recent years, digital twin technology has been widely used in the field of intelligent manufacturing. It can help manufacturers simulate production processes, predict machine performance and production efficiency, and optimize production lines. For example, companies can use digital twinning to simulate production processes to ensure optimal configuration of production lines. This can help manufacturers predict the performance of the production line at the design stage and ensure that the production line can meet production requirements once it is in service.
