Developing a common vocabulary

Defining Digital Twin

The term Digital Twin is being used with increasing frequency, but with little consistency, across multiple industries today. Technologies enabling digital twins have evolved considerably, while a simple taxonomy/ontology/vocabulary for the concept itself has not. To date, while many have built upon the term with their own opinions of its definition; there has been no concentrated multi-party (industry enterprise, non-profit, and academic) effort to harmonize definitions and representations of digital twins in order to put forward a single, authoritative definition to bolster common understanding of not only the base definition of a digital twin, but also its multiple variants and applications.

Digital Twin Consortium will fill this void by recommending a preferred definition, taxonomy, and, ultimately, hierarchy of digital twins to enable the industry to speak with a common vocabulary on this concept – enabling better understanding through shared definition and vernacular.
