  2. Our fundamental concepts, tools and platforms in which we design and implement information systems prevent us from making them flexible and “organic”. They tie us to their components and versions, hide the structures in huge text files, get more rigid and fragile by every change. To step forward, address the true living and evolving nature of every system, we need a radically new approach. This would be important before start solving any particular task, but essential in mitigating critical situations like the Corona crisis.

    Good read, thank you!
  5. We are very pleased to announce the release of the first version of the DT toolkit. It has been developed by a team of volunteers who are working in the area of digital twins and offered their contribution on a pro bono basis. The DT toolkit report takes you through: What is a digital twin? What can digital twins be used for? A case study register on the DT Hub A business case template for a digital twin A roadmap to implementing your digital twin It contain a business case template which is intended to help you put together the business case for a digital twin. The toolkit report and the business case template can be downloaded here. This is the first version of the DT toolkit and we’re looking for your involvement in testing this toolkit and developing it further. We would like to encourage you to share comments here. If you would like to comment on specific areas of the toolkit, please feel free to open a new topic in the related area in this network (use cases, case studies, business case, roadmap). We look forward to hearing your thoughts!

    Digital Twin Toolkit

    726 downloads

    The purpose of this toolkit is to help you on your digital twin journey. It is intended to help you and your team think about why you need a digital twin and what it can be used for. DT Hub members asked for support in making the business case for digital twins so through the Gemini programme, we put together a team of volunteers who are working in the area of digital twins and who offered their contribution on a pro bono basis to the development of a DT Toolkit. The result is a DT toolkit report which takes you through: · What is a digital twin? · What can digital twins be used for? · A case study register on the DT Hub · A business case template for a digital twin · A roadmap to implementing your digital twin This is the first version of the DT toolkit and we’re looking for your involvement in testing this toolkit and developing it further. Please comment here. The toolkit includes a business case template (available below or upon clicking "download this file"), which is intended to help you put together the business case for a digital twin.

  7. If you missed the free webinar last month on how to generate OIRs and critical success factors from an executive strategy join me again on Monday morning. its 1.5 hrs of presentation and 1.5 hrs of workshop. please feel free to attend just the presentation. There is an optional session the following day taking in Function Information Requirements and their impact on delivering digital assets. Sign up and attend what you can! https://event.on24.com/wcc/r/2513815/F72E835712666BB4969CC328281F134D?partnerref=SocialMedia see you all then Iain
  8. Hi Kevin- thanks for this. Totally agree that there's a need to think bigger, longer-term and more ambitiously about the role that digital twins can play in driving sustainable innovation and experimentation. Also agree that use case generation can also be a rather siloed, static, internal process and I think there's a real need to develop some type of market mechanism or computational network to enables the sharing of actual data, software, hardware, business models etc. between DT suppliers and asset owners/ operators. This will be a particularly important task if the development of an upper ontology (thinking here of the Foundation Data Model cited in the IMF) is expected to take a while to come to fruition. Ultimately, if a strong foundation for interoperability/ interconnectivity is to be attained in the interim, DT suppliers (who I'd say largely recognise that the true value of DTs lies in their interconnections with systems and other twins) will require some form of steer/ assistance. In terms of recent examples, I'd refer here to the Royal Society’s Rapid Assistance in Modelling the Pandemic (RAMP) project, which is helping to convene different experts to join up data architectures and assist the COVID response. My questions around this initiative would be- what has worked, what hasn't, how can we keep up the pace of collaboration on data modelling under high levels of uncertainty and risk, and, ultimately, transfer the successful elements across in order to holistically apply DTs to other areas of emerging risk, such as climate change or cyber resilience? Beyond that- I think there's also a need to drive progress around the development and adoption of new value frameworks which place value on natural and social capital, not just economic capital. Natural/ social capital have been traditionally less easy to quantify and therefore integrate into traditional 'cost/ benefit' analyses. This has meant that strategic buy-in for DTs in a business context has generally focused around relatively narrow economic terms. However, as investment, regulatory and policy appetites shift, and our technical capacity to measure and track 'intangible' assets improves (e.g. advances in carbon capture technologies), I think businesses will be better placed to incorporate new value frameworks into their digital twinning journey and hope that they'll place more emphasis on how their own DT fits into the broader narrative of sustainable, resilient, human-centred growth, rather than economic growth at all costs.

    Organisational Information Requirements - Free Webinar

    @iain miskimmin Thanks very much! The courses were very enlightening. The collabrative way of mindmapping also helped to reinforce learning. I am looking forward to more courses in the future.
