Your Digital Twin
Simulation and modeling techniques are fast becoming essential across drug development – including plant maintenance. By simulating processes in a digital twin of a facility, changes can be safely tested before application in the real world. Here, Ronnie Bains, Director of Process Simulation for Europe at Emerson Automation Solutions, dives inside digital twin software for medicine making.

What is a digital twin?
A digital twin is a software-based representation of the physical assets of a plant, including process equipment, instrumentation and controls, as well as the processes that are taking place within them, such as chemical reactions and fermentation. Some digital twins also allow a predictive view to be taken on complex processes, providing insight into different stages of a facility’s lifecycle.
In the life sciences industries, the digital twin is proven and accepted for offline testing of the control system in design/implement/test activities, software and factory integration and the system acceptance testing phases of installation qualification and operational qualification. In addition, a digital twin can be used to provide more effective competency assessment and procedure development.
