The importance of continuous and sustainable information exchange processes rises, due to the growing digitalisation in many fields of automotive area. By implementing the Digital Twin method, these challenges can be met in the future. In this paper, the Digital Twin method is discussed in the context of the automotive wiring harness. Different kinds of individual definitions of the Digital Twin are discussed and the methodical meaning is analysed. Furthermore the wiring harness specific requirements for the Digital Twin, caused by the enormous variety, is considered.
