A digital twin is a virtual replica of a physical object or system that is created using computer-aided design (CAD) or other digital technologies. The digital twin can be used to simulate the behavior and performance of the physical object or system in real-world conditions, allowing engineers and designers to test and optimize their designs before they are built.Increased efficiency and productivity.By simulating and analyzing the performance of machines and systems, digital twins can identify opportunities to improve efficiency and productivity, enabling manufacturers to optimize their operations and reduce costs
Digital twins can be used to provide learners with hands-on experience in designing and testing various mechanical and electrical systems. For example, learners can create digital twins of machines or other systems and simulate their behavior under different operating conditions. This can help them to better understand the principles of mechanics, thermodynamics, and other engineering concepts.
Overall, the use of digital twins in training can help iVET and cVET learners to develop practical skills in engineering and technology, and prepare them for careers in industries such as manufacturing, energy, and mobility .
