Disruption has hit defense supply chains hard. With volatility expected to continue, a future of global geopolitical uncertainty requires more military readiness. And more military readiness requires resilient, battlefield ready supply chains across the defense enterprise.
Digital twins are a critical tool in this environment. They can help manage supply chain risk, accelerate reinvention and build resiliency by combining human ingenuity with technologies that fuel end-to-end visibility and AI-powered scenario modeling. Making the most of digital twins involves the entire organization in a deliberate and continuous strategy that aims to set a new performance frontier—Total Enterprise Reinvention.
Our research indicates that the defense community recognizes the applications of digital twins. With the right strategies and resourcing, we believe they can make significant strides in the near team. In some cases, in a matter of months. However, in addition to recognition, there is reluctance about digital twins fueled by common misperceptions and very real barriers.
