The Digital Shadow of production
A concept for the effective and efficient information supply in dynamic industrial environments
Today there are many technical (e.g. vendor lock-in effect) and organizational (e.g. information quality) issues in information delivery. The Digital Shadow ensures a viable information flow, also in the sense of information logistics, between all actors in and outside a factory. The Digital Shadow with all of its subsystems is designed as a next generation information system to allow a more efficient operation of value creation systems. At least, a roadmap for the Digital Shadow of production is presented.
