Starting from January 1, 2022, a national technical standard in the field of digital twins will begin to operate in Russia.
The standard for the Numerical Modeling series GOST R 57700.37–2021б “Computer Models and Simulation. Digital twins of products. General Provisions”, is approved by the order of Rosstandart, Russian regulatory body. It applies to mechanical engineering products. However, on its basis in the future, other standards might be created that establish requirements for digital twins of products of various industries.
The GOST standard fixes a single definition of "digital twin of a product", which means "a system consisting of a digital model of a product and two-way information links with the product (if available) and (or) its component parts." The series of national standards GOST R 57700 includes 25 standardization documents.
The standard was developed by specialists of the Competence Center for the National Tecnhnology Initiative (NTI) “New Production Technologies” of the St. Petersburg Polytechnic University and Russian Federal Nuclear Center (Rosatom).
