Digital Twins are a virtual representation of anything of value for an organization that creates a link between the real and virtual worlds by a continuous bidirectional data /
information exchange. In this chapter we present the origins of the concept and how it evolved with the advent of new technological trends. In addition, we describe the main
characteristics of Digital Twins, the benefits of its use, and real-world examples of digital twins’ use cases. Finally, the challenges for its adoption, and the elements to be considered
for managing the quality of the Digital Twin are presented to give a complete overview of this new technology.
