Digital twins have become an important element in smart manufacturing. As any other product, digital twins also have a lifecycle, starting from specifying the requirements of the digital twins until their decommissioning. As part of the Manufacturing and Industry 4.0 track of the Winter Simulation Conference (WSC), the purpose of this panel is to discuss the state of the art in digital twins with a special emphasis on the operations and maintenance of manufacturing digital twins during their lifecycles. The panelists come from academia, industry, and government with experience in the digital-twin landscape of the manufacturing industry in the United States, Europe, and Asia. This paper provides a collection of the statements from each panelist with the objective of initiating a deeper discussion during the panel session and inspiring researchers in the simulation community with their perspectives on the use of digital twins for smart manufacturing.
