The digital twin is an important component of the cyber-physical system. This new structure of the production system was the result of the development of information technology. The article shows that, despite the long history and success in the development of production information systems, the concept of building digital twins of production systems is at an early stage. One of the problems in creating digital twins is the need for integration and joint processing of a large amount of heterogeneous information. It is shown that the problem of reflecting the current state of the production system is in many ways similar to the problem of the internal representation of the surrounding world in living systems. It is proposed to choose the theory of the levels of the physiologist N. A. Bernstein as the basis of the conceptual approach to the development of digital twins. The mechanisms of forming models of the external world at every level are outlined. A description of the hierarchical system for processing different types of information and obtaining an invariant representation of the external world are presented. The principles of constructing a virtual image in the organization of motor activity are formulated. The implementation of these principles when building a digital twin of the production process will improve the efficiency of integration methods and joint processing of information.
