The Digital Twin in its core is a digital brain added to its physical twin that relies completely on having the right data in the right time and be able to put it in the right context. The Digital Thread is a purpose-driven framework that defines, guides and controls how data is created, collected, shared, and used across the lifecycle of the physical twin. It connects different siloed elements of data, processes, and actions together and provides an integrated data flow and knowledge creation process required for the digital twin and humans to make a decision or take an action.
Therefore, the BigR.io Digital twin approach has a mechanism with which it can collect, aggregate, and pre-process the required sets of data from the right sources (sensors, Databases …) at the right time. This mechanism is called “Digital Thread.”
