Abstract

Digital Twins and Blockchain are key elements that when connected allow continuous data acquisition in the factory. As the connection between digital twins and blockchain is rather under-explored, the key contribution of this paper is the conceptual development of a digital twin prototype connected with an Ethereum-based blockchain. The outcome of the paper provides a concept to ensure the unique tokens represent the physical assets without being tampered with by applying digital twin technology. The paper includes a case study focused on Matrix-Structured Manufacturing Systems for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
