    Digital twin

    Would it be worth considering something similar to TRL or IRL (technology/investment readiness levels)?

    Digital twin

    As organisations seek to develop their understanding of digital twins and devise an approach and implementation plan, the advocates/champions will need to pitch to the purse string holders. Often times he purse string holder want to understand what’s the minimum expenditure to deliver a service/capability. in my experience it’s useful to break a capability down into constituent parts and have a quality scale. Perhaps good, silver or bronze. An organisation can then pitch a quality level within the areas key to their organisation. can we define an exemplar scale or at least make a start?!

    The creation of digital twins will, with little doubt, impact construction sector suppliers (e.g. refurbishment specialists and trades contractors) in the services they render. It will place on such firms the responsibility to acquire technological capabilities to examine digital twins of assets they need to work on. Data from the ONS shows that a majority of firms that provide such services are SMEs. Research focusing on technology adoption emphasise how SMEs in the construction sector are particularly challenged on many fronts in trying to make technological transitions. Resource constraints, for instance, make the adoption of new technologies an impractical move despite being crucial for their survival. As part of the DTHub program: How can SME firms be helped to acquire the relevant technological capabilities in order to make the transition into a 'new age' of service provision with digital twins at the centre? What pathways for technological transition can be created for firms that are willing, but unable to expend resources to evolve?

    Premieres: August 3rd, 9am-10am PT with live Q&A and on-demand following the event. [Click Here for iCal Invite] Join us live to learn and ask questions! Deep Dives are interactive technical live and on-demand events for developers, architects, or anyone building IoT solutions. Learn how to get started with iModel.js, an open-source programming library from Bentley Systems to create living digital twins: https://www.imodeljs.org/ Microsoft engineers and guest speakers do technical deep dives about a new feature or scenario. List of all upcoming Microsoft IoT Deep Dives: https://aka.ms/iotshow/deepdive Learn more about Integrating 3D Models and IoT data In this session we will demonstrate an application that combines 3D models, 2D maps, and reality mesh into a single environment for visualization. Within that environment we will demonstrate a live, real time, seamless visualization of IoT data streams. Next we will walk through the architecture that enables the application. We will show how we have mapped the IoT data to the assets within the digital twin. And we will show how to keep the digital twin in step with engineering changes. This is done by automating the generation of the Digital Twin Description Language (DTDL) .JSON. Bentley's iTwin platform and iModel.js open-source programming library provide powerful capabilities for aggregating 3D, 2D, reality data and other sources to link with IoT data for a "single pane of glass" visualization, analytics, and simulation so users can make more effective decisions in a timely manner. By integrating the iTwin platform with Azure Digital Twins and other Azure IoT services, Bentley and Microsoft are making it easier for developers, integrators, and customers to build digital twins of their infrastructure assets. Guest Speakers: Josh Schifter – Sr. Software Development Manager, Bentley Systems Roop Saini – Software Developer, Bentley Systems Deep Dive Host: Pamela Cortez - Azure IoT Senior PM Resources: Get started with iModel.js: https://www.imodeljs.org/ Learn more about iTwin: https://www.bentley.com/en/products/product-line/digital-twins/itwin Details on how to ask questions during the live event Add the Deep Dive invite to your calendar or come back to this page when the premiere airs and go to https://aka.ms/deepdive/digital-twins-live (link will be redirected to YouTube before the event) for the streaming event to view the video and chat box Make sure to sign in to YouTube to be able to ask questions to our engineers and talk to others on the chat!

    Have your Say: The IMF Pathway Consultation

    This is a practical and sustainable approach! If the system allows individuals to develop in a selfish way, while creating value to the public, it is an empowering system that indiduals can flourish. On the other hand, the collection of individuals build a even better system.

    Early analysis by the Geospatial Commission suggests that more accessible and better quality location data in infrastructure and construction could be worth over £4 billion per year and accidental strikes on underground assets are estimated to cost £1.2bn a year in direct and indirect cost. One of our first initiatives is the creation of a National Underground Asset Register. This event is for organisations and authorities who own and operate buried assets, as well as those who excavate on their behalf. Gaining your input on our future plans is extremely important and valuable to us so please do come along to hear more about our programme and take the opportunity to give your feedback.
  19. The Pathway towards an Information Management Framework (IMF) was published by CDBB at the end of May and contains the collaborative vision of over 70 contributors that came together to build a consensus on how we can build a national digital twin from a nation of digital twins. In response to the National Infrastructure Commission’s report, ‘Data for the Public Good’, the Pathway towards an IMF lays out the ambitious goal of creating a framework where organisations can share data in a robust, resilient and secure way. This will enable better decisions, strengthen the economy and allow for human flourishing. The IMF pathway has at its core, the Gemini Principles, the guiding principles ensuring the framework has purpose, creates trust and is adaptable and flexible enough to work for organisations now and in the future. Taking the selfish approach…. for the greater good The IMF Pathway details the approach to establishing a common language allowing digital twins to talk to each other. This can start within organisations linking up disparate digital twins and breaking up silos to give better corporate control and aid decision making. This then allows the national digital twin to connect those joined up corporate twins by sharing key data to and from other related organisations and sectors to enable deeper insight and benefit to the organisations and the nation for the greater good. In engaging with the IMF Pathway, an organisation has the primary benefit of first recognising the value of their corporate wide data, and secondly, fully preparing themselves to take advantage of, and contribute to, the value and benefit of nationally shared data. The Pathway proposes three building blocks to form the framework:    A Foundation Data Model (FDM): A consistent, clear ontology for the digital twin ecosystem: a structure for sharing and validating data    A Reference Data Library (RDL): Common references, or vocabulary that enable the secure sharing of high-quality data: the common language for describing digital twins    An Integration Architecture (IA): Design and build of the digital systems that manage the connected digital twins: the glue that can link twins together.  The IMF will bring together the standards and data exchange protocols that will allow this ecosystem to create a National Digital Twin from a nation of digital twins. Security and protection of personal data is essential to connecting twins in the right way and is integral in the development of the IMF pathway, as illustrated by this diagram from the IMF Pathway and the accompanying Approach Summary. Following the release of the IMF Pathway, CDBB hosted a webinar and was delighted by the response of the participants and the enthusiasm for the IMF. The recording of the webinar is available on the DT Hub to watch at any time. Continuation of collaboration and consultation The Pathway continues to be a collaborative process and we now look to you to help ensure the widest possible feedback on the document to make sure it meets the needs of infrastructure asset owners, local authorities, architects, engineering consultants, construction companies, software developers, AI companies, big tech and more. The consultation is open until the end of August and we would really value your input.

    The Pathway Towards an Information Management Framework

    Thank you for this @Tammy Au and @RachelJudson. I'm still currently reading through with the aspiration to submit comments before the August deadline. Some of my comments are grammar/terminology related but there is one I wanted to put here for others to discuss. Under 3.5 (Foundation Data Model) there is a section that asks the question: I was under the impression that "twinning" the make and model as opposed to the specific car would not be a digital twin according to the Gemini principles. Specifically on page 10 it states: If a manufacturer has a digital representation of a car, a potential twin, then surely it has no connection to the physical twin as there is no physical "thing" to connect to. This is largely why I refute the idea that digital twins can be applicable to design and construction as during that period the digital representations created within design authoring tools are also potential twins with no connection to a physical asset/system. I wonder how do we address the digital twins distinguishing feature (connecting to the physical) when there is no physical to connect to?

    Digital twin

    Our internal definition subtly swaps out the term "asset" for "environment" to keep us conscious of things such as ground movements or air quality.

    DT Talks Series 2 - Final Roundtable

    until
    The focus of the 2nd series of digital twin talks is to explore the complex topic associated with the interconnection of digital twins in order to access the compound benefits that this can deliver. It cannot be expected by any solution provider, that “their” digital twin solution is one that can hope to achieve complete market monopoly given the bespoke nature of individual organisations and sectors requirements, histories and aspirations. It is, therefore, imperative that during the creation of these solutions one is considerate of design practices that are conducive in enabling the connection with other solutions [and their needs]. This practice will of course require governance but early reflection on this ambition can ultimately lower the technical hurdles that may emerge in line with potential integration frameworks. The series will end with a roundtable discussion facilitated by Tom Hughes (DT Hub Delivery Lead) with the presenters forming a panel to discuss the presentations and further explore the topic.

    For the UK’s digital twin ecosystem to flourish, key decision-makers must be acutely aware of the commercial incentive structures and narratives that underpin strategic collaboration across different problem domains and time horizons. In this talk, Tom explores some of the key commercial barriers to sustainable, human-centred growth across the UK’s digital twin ecosystem and highlights ongoing work conducted by techUK’s cross-market Digital Twin Working Group (DTWG).

    In this short talk we’ll look at what have been the key barriers to entry over the last 20 years for Digital Twins. At Slingshot Simulations we talk about the 3C’s for Digital Twins: connectivity, communication, and collaboration. We’ll take a quick dive into how we use our Simulation-as-a-Service paradigm to facilitate rapid integration of Digital Twins as systems of systems.
