BOSTON, MA, March 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Digital Twin Consortium® (DTC), The Authority in Digital Twin™, has announced the Digital Twin Capabilities Periodic Table (CPT). It is a definition framework that organizations can use to design, develop, deploy, and operate composable digital twins (CDTs) with faster time to value. CDTs are application-based platforms that provide service orchestration using Packaged Business Capabilities (PBCs), modular combinations of technical capabilities presented as bundled services.

The Digital Twin CPT groups capabilities around common characteristics using a periodic table approach. The framework focuses on use case requirements against technology solutions and architectures. Organizations can use the Digital Twin CPT to determine the capabilities they need to deliver successful digital twin solutions. They can also use it to analyze vendor solutions to ensure they match use case requirements.

“The Digital Twin CPT is a ‘must have’ framework for any organization that wants to start composing digital twins using a capability-based approach,” said Dan Isaacs, CTO, Digital Twin Consortium. “Going forward, we plan to release a capability maturity model that organizations can use to assess their progress in developing digital twins.”

The Digital Twin CPT framework facilitates collaboration within multidisciplinary or fusion teams that create specifications for digital twins for large-scale complex environments. The framework focuses on the capacity requirements of individual use cases. The team can come together to determine the capacity requirements of a digital twin platform and the technology solutions it will need to meet specific business needs.

“Organizations can use the Digital Twin CPT framework in the boardroom to explain the business case for funding a digital twin project. They can also use it in the shop floor to gather requirements for twin applications digital,” said Pieter van Schalkwyk, CEO of XMPro and Co-Chair, Natural Resources Task Force, Digital Twin Consortium. “It provides visual guidance for organizations to collaborate and think about capability requirements.”

Organizations can use the Digital Twin CPT throughout the lifecycle of a digital twin; capabilities may differ in different phases, but the approach remains the same.
