A digital twin is a virtual model of a process, product or service. Imagine a digital twin as the bridge that links the physical and digital world. LOG365 Digital Twin for Supply Chains equips students with the knowledge and digital skills to develop and apply digital twins to solve supply chain problems before they occur, minimise downtime and plan for the future. The course covers concepts, inputs and outputs, and techniques to set up the digital twin. We look at digital twin applications in warehouse, transport and port terminal operations as well as value-added service in the supply chain. Lessons learned from the virtual world can be applied to the physical world to transform the supply chain.
