This paper explores the opportunities of using a digital twin to address the complexities of collaborative production systems through an industrial case and a demonstrator. A digital twin, as a virtual counterpart of a physical human-robot assembly system, is built as a front-runner for validation and control through design, build, and operation. The forms of digital twins along the system life cycle, the building blocks, and potential advantages are presented. Recommendations for future
