What is mutual mapping
Mutual mapping is a management method applicable to organizations of any size and complexity that involves creating a virtual model of the organization (its cybernetics image) and subsequent continuous interchange (mapping) of their independently varying characteristics between the original organization and its digital twin in real time.
Mutual mapping is the world's first implementation of Managing by Wire.
Managing by Wire concept (analogous with fly-by-wire and drive by wire) was first presented by Stephan Haeckel, director of Strategic Studies at IBM’s Advanced Business Institute, and Richard Nolan, professor at Harvard Business School, in 1993.
Mutual mapping summarizes and furthers a Digital Twin concept at a qualitatively new level.
In other words, the organization and its cybernetic image opposite make up a mutual mapping meta-system.
It is precisely this meta-system consisting of two equal subsystems opposite one another (not just a fantastic computer program alone), one of which is your real organization, is a managing system for your organization in the academic sense.
Decades after computers emerged, great minds aspired to create a computer system (like 'Artificial Intelligence', etc.) which can manage the organization better than a human being.
The state of the managed organization changes over time under influence of a huge number of external and internal factors, such as customers, competitors, suppliers, employees, automated computer services and unmanned production and logistics equipment, while all changes in the physical original are replicated (based on the level of elaboration of model's details) in the virtual image in real time.
What does an enterprise digital twin look like?
A basic model created with the dia$par package with a minimal number of details exists in a 242-dimensional space. The number of environmental dimensions for images of large complex organizations can exceed 500.
As a result of the automated execution of business logic algorithms, all evolutionary developments of the virtual model are simultaneously and independently applied to the original either through actions taken by organization employees (based on managerial decisions of the meta-system), or via the equipment and services directly controlled by the formal logic of the virtual model — websites, industrial robots, automated cash registers, warehouse trucks, etc.
"Man — Universe" as a prototype for mutual mapping
Human thought and his interaction with the surrounding world are examples of mutual mapping based on biotechnology rather than on electronics.
It is precisely this bilateral, pear-to-pear, real-time and synchronized communication between the original organization and its virtual image that is both the major innovation of mutual mapping (as well the further development of a Digital Twin concept at a qualitatively new level) and a paramount breakthrough in effective control over the most intricate social organizations of the human civilization.
In other words, mutual mapping for management is of the same importance as the alphabet for informatics, positional notation for arithmetic, heliocentrism for astronomy, and the wheel for transportation.
