  2. The idea of a Digital Twin [DT] needs to advance in a standardized and formal manner. As @DRossiter87 pointed out, this is necessary to "support the consistent adoption of, and interoperability between, digital twins for the built environment within the UK" To aid in this endeavour, it is useful to delineate the difference between the following terms: “DT General Use Case” [GUC]: a very short sentence, possibly consisting of two or three words – ideally a verb followed by a noun – ultimately concerned with the brief and blunt statement of the central business aim that is motivating t
  3. I'd like to share with everyone a recent report by the AMRC set out to Untangle the Requirements of a Digital Twin defining and justifying a digital twin to be A live digital coupling of the state of a physical asset or process to a virtual representation with a functional output. This is an accumulation of the research AMRC has been doing in this space over several years working both with multiple sectors of industry and academic institutions so I'm keen to hear your thoughts on the approach taken to breakdown the requirements of having a digital twin defined in this way. Does it match y

    The value of, and from, Data

    For me, Digital Twins are for acquiring, maintaining and exploiting Data - as a means to an end. We need to shift the typical focus of many organisations away from technology and "IT" towards understanding this perspective. I think the real value comes from thinking about Data Flows and not just the Data (store / Lake / whatever). This is my perspective also in the context of Asset Management. I am not associated with Anmut, but I recommend this well-written Report. (They have collaborated with Highways England to do some extremely exciting and useful work re Gemini.) https://anmut.

    The future of technology

    Hi @HenryFT Thanks for answering my questions- you defined IoTs as the ecosystem and the rules, instead of the things that I was thinking. It makes perfect sense after your explanation. For a turely collabrative and co-created IoT system, I agree that the ecosystem of internet connected things are not owned by anyone, because it is a shared asset. But the devices and physical infrastructures that makes the IoT system, can be owned by various peoople and organisation (and that what I was thinking). The digital twin in the edge cases and emergencies, as well as 'game loop' are interes
  6. 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
  7. @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.
  8. @Ian Gordon I think there is a lot to uncover and learn from those sectors. Check this out from O&G: http://15926.org/topics/plant-lifecycle-model/index.htm#DataModel I imagine it would be interesting (& fun) to map a potential hierarchy of individual and composite twins (aka fat twins ?) against the life-cycle of the physical system of things. One way to start this could be by mapping the life-cycles of the physical system and overlay the interventions required on top of it. The aim would be to have the minimum number of digital twins (maybe measured by data and cloud cost?)
  9. To inform design tools (in a fully autonomous scenario) or humans (quasi-virtual state) on design performance based on building performance data, thereby creating a knowledge based feedback loop to the originators of that design. Eventually this could lead to a positive feedback loop for continuous learning for building design based on perfromance.
  10. I would like to know what the group thinks about creating stronger linkages between the built and natural environment. The below article is a quick read and should stimulate thinking - if we don't manage to link the two systems conceptually, semantically and eventually programmatically, we are are going to miss a big trick. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/328636876_The_Ground_Beneath_Our_Cities ConferencePaper_54thISOCARPCongress2018_Venvik_G_TheGroundBeneathOurCities (1).pdf
  11. Morning all, Following yesterday's excellent Digital Twin talk with imec and @Tanguy Coenen, my cogs started to whirl and, in conversation with @Simon Evans (thanks Simon!), a visual fell out. What I have tried to do is visually represent the period of time that a digital twin is out of sync following an intervention to the physical asset. Focusing on representing: Latency from intervention to detection (for example, time taken from a pipe breaking to detecting pressure loss); and Latency from input to representation (for example, time taken to receive, configure, updat

    Welcome! Do you have any standard specification of information that you believe should be captured for such assets?

    Reflection: Right vs Real

    This is an interesting topic. The reason that I'd be unclear on the classification of Air Traffic control is not about the realistic representation, but more about the added value of having an element of intelligence or modelling, rather than just a display of the current data. If it's just displaying the data from the sensors for a human to view then I don't think I'd class it as a twin, however if it's got some type of model or intelligence inbuilt that understands the relationships between the data sets then I think it would qualify. If pressed, I'd probably assume that modern air traffic c
  14. Hi @Nicholas, Thanks for the insight. I'm with the team at Scottish Government that is working up the strategy for a digital transformation of the planning system in Scotland. We're keen to link up with anyone else looking at DT's in the context of Planning and Building Standards. We think DT’ are a powerful concept that could aid with improved decision and policy making that result in better places. Rhett
