Does your plant have a digital twin? If not, it should – this digital replica of physical assets and processes is crucial to maximizing safety and fine-tuning your manufacturing processes. Unfortunately, hurdles often exist in achieving a digital twin, not the least of which is the lack of a common understanding of exactly what a digital twin could – or should – entail.
John Brown, supervisor of GM’s Reality Capture team, has used Leica Geosystems’ 3D laser scanning solutions to survey dozens of GM sites for plant expansions and general knowledge on the automaker’s land and buildings, and he has led the implementation of Leica TruView point cloud sharing software to cut costs and streamline operations.
