Methodology and Tool Support for Effective Digital Twining
Project 3 aims to develop methods and tools for the efficient creation of digital twins using model-driven software development techniques based on combining, managing, integrating and executing heterogeneous models from various engineering disciplines.
The scientific challenge taken on in Project 3 is how to create models that are verifiable and provide specification guarantees of the integration of digital twin software components.
From the state of the art, we can observe that this main challenge can be broken down into two scientific sub-challenges. The two sub-challenges that will be addressed in Project 3 are:
- The efficient creation of digital twins using model-driven software engineering (MDSE) techniques, thus creating dedicated digital twin models, by modelling components and interactions (exchange of data) of the components of the digital twin, where the components are the individual (heterogeneous) models, and generating the digital twins using MDSE techniques.
- To ensure consistency between heterogeneous models, that describe for instance physical properties, as well as early identification of inconsistencies in order to ensure a trustworthy digital twin.
