The paradigm of Industry 4.0 proposes the use of technologies and tools to improve the efficiency and the adaptability of manufacturing processes to face a globalized and competitive market. The Digital Twin is a key concept within the context of Industry 4.0 and has received great attention from both industry and academia. However, there is a lack of consensus in the definition of this concept. There are mainly three interpretations: the first defines the Digital Twin as a high precision simulation model; the second interprets it as a virtual representation of the state and the behavior of manufacturing assets for its integration into Industry 4.0; and the third, of recent appearance, which proposes the combination of the previous ones. In this work, it is proposed a methodology to implement Digital Twins according to this third interpretation. Therefore, the authors propose concrete actions to implement a Digital Twin with the ability to simulate an station and perform its virtual commissioning, besides facilitating its integration in Industry 4.0.
