Acumen CEO joins 13 Forbes Tech Experts on Digital Twins Practical Application

It eliminates the need to take equipment or processes represented by the digital twin offline, enabling multiple experiments; it allows for what-if analyses; and it optimizes defined parameters/outputs with a replica interface that responds to human and environmental input virtually as if it was the physical twin. All this significantly de-risks analysis by making it unnecessary to use the physical twin. -
