What you'll learn:

Simulation has been used in many years in the process industry, but now the industry is taking this to a higher level. From being used for smaller parts of the plant and operator training, now more and more of the plant can be simulated as a digital twin following the plant life cycle for improved safety and productivity. When the simulator becomes the control system master, the plant can reduce risk for unplanned shutdowns and blackouts.

According to Gartner, 75% of organisations implementing loT technology already use digital twins as part of their system, or are planning to do so within a year. The tech has gone mainstream – despite that 75% being broken up into 13% that currently use the technology and 62% that plan to.
