(DE) VERFAHREN UND SYSTEM ZUR ERZEUGUNG ODER AKTUALISIERUNG EINES DIGITALEN ZWILLINGS
(EN) METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CREATING OR UPDATING A DIGITAL TWIN
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET SYSTÈME POUR LA CRÉATION OU LA MISE À JOUR D'UN JUMEAU NUMÉRIQUE
Abstract
(EN) In order to create or update a digital twin (DT) modeling a physical system, data from several conjoint data sources (DS) are repeatedly extracted and semantically annotated, wherein semantic annotations of data that have been extracted from a first conjoint data source are influenced by previously extracted and semantically annotated data from at least one other conjoint data source. The semantically annotated data (GBS) can be used to create or update the digital twin. This provides a modular and easily expandable solution for enriching a digital twin from a plurality of conjoint data sources with heterogenous data. Various embodiments can provide an automated export (EPM) into different existing digital twin systems, for example PlantSight, COMOS or Teamcenter. The original data sources do not need to be changed. The solution is expandable to include all kinds of data sources with custom types. Import of data from various data sources with various data types as well as from existing digital twins can be triggered individually. The extracting and semantically annotating of the data are augmented with knowledge gained from previous annotations. Depending on the type of data imported, already known information can for example be used to dynamically create label spaces and embeddings. This way the processing of new data happens with awareness of already in other data sources identified entities, object and relations. Thus, processing of different data sources does not happen isolated from one another while the system remains modularly expandable to new data sources. Compared to previous approaches, instead of creating yet another stand-alone digital representation of the physical system that is not compatible with already existing solutions, these solutions are augmented with a modular data management pipeline.
