The concept of using “Twins” originates from NASA’s Apollo program (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), where at least two identical spacecrafts were built to reflect the conditions of the spacecraft during a mission in outer space [1]. Multiple digital twins are deployed to represent the up-to-date industrial data of the physical assets in operation, including asset status within manufacturing. These digital twins collaborate by sharing and exchanging information among entities and sharing tasks to act accordingly [2,3].
