IPC Releases IPC-2551, International Standard for Digital Twins


Reading time ( words)

IPC announces the release of IPC-2551, International Standard for Digital Twins. This first international standard is comprised of digital twin product, manufacturing, and lifecycle frameworks. Using this standard, any manufacturer, design organization or solution provider can initiate application interoperability to create smart value chains.                                 

Of significant use to any company, IPC-2551 provides a comprehensive self-assessment mechanism for companies to determine their current digital twin readiness level and roadmap the steps they will need to take to achieve a full digital twin approach. This comprehensive approach provides real value to companies that are in the planning stages for applying a digital twin framework to their operations.                 

The standard enables interoperability of all forms of processing of digital data that precisely match and represents the physical capabilities. The standard does this by defining and precisely laying out a digital twin cell-based architecture. This enables any manufacturer to create and utilize the IPC digital twin standard to represent every process and possible actions taken on a product within the manufacturing and lifecycle environment, for engineering, modeling, planning, quality and reliability analysis, simulations, and much more, allowing critical decisions for product, process, and material design to be optimized.       

“Benefits of establishing a digital twin framework and the tools that work within the framework will ensure that the physical expectations will be met without the need for a physical prototype,” said Matt Kelly, IPC chief technologist. “IPC-2551 will help with optimization of processes reducing losses associated with manufacturing and logistics, increasing productivity, efficiency and cost performance,” Kelly added.
