Twins Accelerate Transformation. nD Accelerates Twins.
Industrial digital transformation is not possible without unlocking domain expertise from the heads of engineers and from static documents. The nD platform empowers domain experts to rapidly codify knowledge and activate content to create dynamic, high-value digital twins. nD-powered digital twins tirelessly monitor, diagnose, predict, prescribe and optimize industrial performance, reliability and sustainability.

What are digital twins?
Digital Twins are dynamic virtual representations of assets, processes and enterprises. They are connected to live data streams to provide continuous awareness of how their real-world counterparts are performing so better decisions can be made. When infused with AI, digital twins also predict future events before they occur, prescribe improvement actions and optimize in real-time. These intelligent digital twins are improving industrial business outcomes and becoming key building blocks for digital transformation.
Earlier digital twins were detailed replicas of assets using physics-based models. Next-generation digital twins use AI to:
- Codify and continuously apply engineering models and expert knowledge.
- Fill knowledge gaps.
- Go beyond monitoring what’s happening to predicting what’s next, prescribing what to do and optimizing actions in real-time.
- Automate many of the processes around building, deploying, operating and maintaining digital twins so they can be used at scale for enterprise-wide benefits.
Why do digital twins need artificial intelligence (AI)?
Why a digital twin platform?
The promise of digital twins is huge but implementing them at scale is hard. Asset-intensive enterprises have thousands of physical assets and business processes. Each has many data sources and digital twin use cases. Each twin consists of multiple models, which require frequent updates. And twins must be integrated with each other and with other systems to realize their full potential. That requires an industrial-strength digital twin platform.
