What are digital twins?
Think of a digital twin as a bridge between the physical and digital world.
Digital twins are a virtual representation of a physical asset, maintained and analysed throughout the lifecycle, whilst remaining accessible via a secure collaborative platform at any point in time. It is central to the digital asset ecosystem, harnessing technology to deliver optimised lifecycle asset performance, facilitating next generation advanced predictive analytics, monitoring and optimisation.
Why are digital twins important?
They aggregate data from many different software platforms to enhance integrated lifecycle information management and collaboration.
Project operations management and maintenance teams are able to leverage seamless collaboration and analytics in real time via a secure platform, preventing costly mistakes and rework whilst effectively managing operational risk and safety.
Lessons are learned and opportunities are uncovered and tested within the virtual environment that can be applied to the physical world.
Born from the digital spine approach, our digital twin can aggregate data from many different software sources to enhance holistic lifecycle based information management and collaboration. Project operations management and maintenance teams are able to leverage seamless collaboration and analytics in real time via a secure platform, preventing costly mistakes and rework, increasing stakeholder understanding through the use of 3D models, visualisation and immersive technologies such as virtual and mixed reality, whilst effectively managing operational risk and safety.
Facilitating the cost-effective management of digital assets, our digital twin takes advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) and has the ability to include a network of interconnecting smart assets, sensor data, remote monitoring and data analytics enabling the validation of predictive scenario analysis in an increasingly connected world.
Our digital twin solutions offering combines our experience as market leaders in the field of Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital strategy whilst adopting a digital spine approach, with the continued advances in digital technology within the industry. Accordingly, our digital twin offering is utilised across the entire supply chain through the combination of several core services.
Ultimately to transform your business at every stage in your asset creation in CAPEX or from acquisition in OPEX, you will know what you have, where it is, how it is performing, how to optimise it, when it needs help and ultimately how to safely decommission it and all connected into the rest of your business systems.
