A digitalization consultancy in the apparel Industry working closely with Siemens to develop “Digital Twin” models for the product, production, and performance of apparel.
In the late 1980’s, many apparel brands shed their backwards integration to exploit the low cost labor markets emerging in developing nations. They shuttered their own factories and worked through agents and contract manufacturers with little or no visibility into the tiers of the supply chain.
The goal of a MetaVertical approach is to digitally re-connect a fragmented supply chain and return the feedback loop through the Digital Twin model. Simply put, a Digital Twin incorporates subject matter expertise into a digital system. To model the advantages of the old vertical models into a digital enterprise, three Digital Twin models are required — the Product Digital Twin, the Production Digital Twin, and the Performance Digital Twin.
