The digital twin offers new possibilities for product validation in the application of virtual-physical testing. A more concrete description of the digital twin in product validation is missing and therefore will be specified here. For this aim, a single-case study was conducted using an electrohydrostatic actuator. This system is influenced by many interactions due to its integral design and is thus representative of a complex system. The characterization of the digital twin in product validation is done by specifying the model quality, interoperability and integration levels. The research results of the digital twin are used and linked to the state of research from product validation. An architecture represents these characteristics and thus allows transferability to other systems.
