The Digital Twin is a representation of the physical plant assets (i.e. process equipment, instrumentation and controls) and the processes that take place within them (i.e. chemical reactions, separation processes, heat transfer).
Emerson’s Digital Twin supports the proven value of using dynamic simulation for designing, implementing, and testing automation solutions. We typically use either Mimic, Aspentech HySys, or Aspen Plus as the foundation of our Digital Plant Twin solutions.
The Digital Twin enables virtual training of process operators and supports the continual need for process optimization and experimentation without risk to the process or the operations of the plant.
