Abstract

The purpose of this panel is to discuss the state of the art in digital twin for manufacturing research and practice from the perspective of the simulation community. The panelists come from the US, Europe, and Asia representing academia, industry, and government. This paper begins with a short introduction to digital twins and then each of the panelists provides his preliminary thoughts on concept, definitions, challenges, implementations, relevant standard activities, and future directions. Two of the panelists also report their digital twin projects and lessons learned. The panelists may have different viewpoints and may not totally agree with each other on some of the arguments, but the intention of the panel is not to unify researchers' thinking, but to list the questions, initiate a deeper discussion, and try to help researchers in the simulation community with their future study topics on digital twin for manufacturing.
