General Electric uses digital twins to visualize, predict and maintain its organization. Its process includes building digital models of complex machinery. In latest developments, General Electric in Bengaluru commissions the head of physical-digital analytics to help the HR department curb attrition.

Vinay B Jammu and his team utilize the same concept that GE uses to test machinery and better customer experience across the board -- including aviation, power, energy and healthcare. The team created a digital twin that takes into consideration different inter-corporate factors -- from who a group of people answer to to how many promotions and awards employees receive per sector. The digital twin model encompassed 5-10 individuals from each department.

In the end, Jammu's system is able to cut costs, boost productivity, as well as solve housekeeping problems like reducing wastage in GE cafeterias.
