The ideal basis for realizing the Digital Twin

The Digital Twin results from the digital representation of all of a product’s data. However, this information needs to be managed in a homogenous and consistent system – from the initial requirements sketch, through MCAD and ECAD drawings, to manufacturing and operation data. The prerequisite is a digital product lifecycle based on modern software solutions.

The strategic integration platform SAP Engineering Control Center | SAP ECTR as an important component of the SAP solutions for Product Lifecycle Management creates the best possible conditions for this.
