THE ROLE OF DIGITAL TWINS IN DIGITAL LOGISTICS
The supply chain is full of what-ifs. What if a storm impacts a shipment? What if a shipyard could be optimized to reduce berthing times? What if a manufacturer is unable to ship products out as planned? Digital twins empower people to leverage data to see how objects and systems work in various conditions and situations. They give businesses the ability to anticipate the what-ifs and develop strategies to handle them.
APPLICATIONS FOR COGNITIVE MANUFACTURING
Cognitive manufacturing pairs cognitive technologies with IoT data and advanced data analytics, enabling manufacturers to thoroughly optimize their operations based on large amounts of structured and unstructured data from a wide variety of sources. Cognitive manufacturing solutions can be leveraged in a range of applications across product quality, asset performance, and resource and supply chain optimization.
