“Digital twin” is a term that is coming up increasingly in a variety of situations for life science industry professionals. Broadly speaking, a digital twin can be thought of as a realistic digital representation of a physical thing (e.g., living, or inanimate, molecule, device), design (i.e., prototype design), system (i.e., manufacturing line or facility), or process (e.g., medical devices complaints intake, clinical trials operational management).
