    Test Engineering and DTs

    I am considering starting a network for topics related to Lifecycle V&V (Validation and Verification) centred on Evaluation and Testing, and this message is to poll the level of potential interest. I imagine the network would offer the following: · A place for Test Engineers from different market sectors to share experiences and gain knowledge · Support for those areas where DT activity is low but growing, the Defence Sector is an example, to benefit from the experiences of other sectors Test Engineers have a mix of technical and customer skills that are central to successful project implementation. The DT concept provides a lifecycle project-thread that provides Test Engineers with an unprecedented opportunity to exercise their skills. Maybe finding a way to maximise this opportunity might also attract more people to the career, and be a way to improve recruitment into the world of Engineering? If we launch this Network, would you consider joining it? Dave Murray

    Climate Accounting - Hyperledger

    An example was given of applying accounting principles which justified cutting down trees to encourage growth of a spagnum bog because Spagnum is apparently 200 times more effiient at carbon capture and water retention than a wooded forest covering the same ground area and faster growing.
  7. The Good Homes Alliance seeks to drive up standards, performance and quality in new homes built in the UK. We have developed a concept built upon existing IP that digitises an assured performance process to enable a comprehensive outcome that will enable net zero (and other desirable outcomes such as health and wellbeing of occupants) to be met and verified. This concept would address a number of issues currently being discussed and deabted by the investment/finance/insurance/warranty sectors and would upskill design teams and constructors because of the built in on demand training that accompanies the app-concept. The concept is called NetZeTT (Net Zero Tool and Training) and has an existing set of project partners, what it doesn't yet have is funding, if any potential funders are interested in this project please reply.
  8. TechUK’s Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) published a landmark report- ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’- on Thursday 25th February. The purpose of this report is to drive consensus around terminology, highlight key prizes associated with digital twinning across the UK, and to set out strategic recommendations for industry and Government as to how the UK’s digital twin ecosystem can progress and evolve long-term. The report also sets out a handful of recommendations, including that there should be a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary co-ordinating body to promote their use. It would identify common information requirements and capability gaps, provide guidance on codes of conduct in the use of digital twins, and develop incentives such as tax credits or innovation funding. This would come with a 10-year public investment of £150-200 million to support innovation, adoption and diffusion, and strong roles for the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). A further boost could be provided by an online procurement portal – the cost of which is estimated at up to £1.5 million – that would make digital twin offerings on the market more visible and less complex, and lead to improvements in their quality and affordability. Other recommendations are for a series of strategic demonstrator projects to show the value and identify barriers to the adoption of digital twins; to identify the skills needed to support their use; and for UKRI to run a demonstrator project on how the concept can support the aim for net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

    Digital Twins in Healthcare

    Hello Pete, Please feel free to reach me at andrewar@vueops.com to discuss DT for healthcare. Regards, Andrew Arnold
  10. It could be important in context of historically important buildings/sites etc. Looking at how it could be affected by subsurface changes due to nearby construction, erosion etc. Whilst the building itself may not be using performance models, sensors could be used to show movement of the building itself or on a larger scale using sensors on train tracks , bridges etc that can indicate structural problems before something catastrophic occurs.

BGS and Cambridge collaborated on modelling heat flow from basements to the surrounding strata and groundwater https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0886779818309635, http://nora.nerc.ac.uk/id/eprint/526141/ BGS and Dr Sauer Group worked on an integrated geospatial model at Farringdon Station https://www.icevirtuallibrary.com/doi/abs/10.1680/cpid.61293.431
  12. I was reccently introduced to the work on Digital Twins that the City of Wellington is involved in. I share some links with the DT Hub community. Unlocking the Value of Data: Managing New Zealand’s Interconnected Infrastructure Plus, check out these links too.. which where shared with me by Sean Audain from Wellington City Council who is leading the Digital Twin activity in the city. "We have been on this trip for a while - here is an article on our approach https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/towards-city-digital-twins-sean-audain/ - the main developments since it was written was a split between the city twin and the organisational twin - something that will be formalised in the forthcoming digital strategy. To give you an idea of progress in the visualisation layer this is what the original looked like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IGRBB-9jjik&feature=youtu.beback in 2017 - the new engines we are testing now look like this https://vimeo.com/427237377 - there are a bunch of improvements in the open data and in the shared data systems." I asked Sean about the impact on the DT to city leaders decision making. This is his response... "In our system we are open unless otherwise stated. We have used it as a VR experience with about 7000 wellingtonians in creating the City Resilience Strategy and Te Atakura- the Climate CHange Response and Adaptation plan. There are more descrete uses such as the proposals for the Alcohol Bylaw - https://www.arcgis.com/apps/Cascade/index.html?appid=2c4280ab60fe4ec5aae49150a46315af - this was completed a couple fo years ago and used part of the data sharing arrangements to make liquor crime data available to make decisions. I have the advantage of being a part of local government in getting civic buy in. Every time our councillors are presented with this kind of information they want more." Alcohol Control Bylaw – New
  13. I would like to open this Topic to know which technical possibilities do we have in the market to develop a Building Twin
  14. Hi Ntando, good to have you on the Hub today. I know that Highways England are looking at Digital Twins from first hand experience and that most of the water utilities are looking into it as well.

    Impact of Natural Disasters

    Good evening all, I am looking for organisations that are willing to talk about the financial, reputational and environmental impact on them during some of the recent natural disaster we have suffered in the UK. the reason is that we are looking at a resilience digital twin centred around critical infrastructure. Setting both commons and foundation data model requirements to understand criticality, vulnerability and impact. can anyone facilitate an introduction? thanks Iain

  20. A number of interesting podcasts relating to water. Podcast 1: Digital Twins and Water Utility Capital Planning Water utilities continue to have to address the persistent external challenges associated to the infrastructure budget gap, ensuring that consumers trust the reliability and safety of water services, and that the systems that deliver these services are resilient. Additionally, internal issues may prevent improved insights and more efficient processes around capital planning. Digital twins help utilities take a data-driven approach to capital planning so that time is spent on preventative planning versus reacting to issues, and the decisions made yield the highest value for each dollar of investment. Learn more about Digital Twins in Water Utilities. Speakers: Dr. Tom Walski, Bentley Fellow, Water Infrastructure; Ari Opdahl, Senior Product Manager, Water Infrastructure https://players.brightcove.net/5209582030001/default_default/index.html?videoId=6124419772001 Podcast 2: Digital Twins and Water Utility Operations and Maintenance Water utilities face operations and maintenance challenges related to rapidly aging infrastructure, regulatory requirements, changes in customer demands, availability of funds, among others. Many utilities have SCADA and various systems that provide detailed data to help them remain responsive and resilient in the face of these challenges. Often, however, utilities are data-rich and information poor and lack the tools to visualize, assemble, and analyze the data they do collect so that they can present this data in a readily understandable and actionable way for decision-making. With digital twins, you can more easily identify and quantify vulnerabilities, efficiently test mitigation strategies before implementation, and stage and prioritize processes for operations and maintenance. You can also consider future changes for capital planning. Learn more about Digital Twins in Water Utilities. Speakers: Joel Johnson, Manager, Product Success, Water Infrastructure https://players.brightcove.net/5209582030001/wnP7ciZJZ_default/index.html?videoId=6164225891001 Podcast 3: Digital Twins and Water Utility Emergency Preparedness A water utility must remain responsive and resilient, but emergencies occur that can interrupt services or the quality of services. Additionally, internal issues may cause the utility to remain reactive versus proactive when it comes to emergency response. With digital twins, you can more easily identify and quantify vulnerabilities, efficiently test mitigation strategies before implementation, and stage and prioritize processes for operations and maintenance. You can also consider future changes for capital planning. Learn more about Digital Twins in Water Utilities.

    Nationalized Infrastructure?

    As an adopted son I would think probably yes. Perhaps a digital twin of the rail network will be the thin end of the wedge. At the end of the day, during Covid, rail travel isn't making the money and some services need to exist whether they're making money or not which let's face it provides serious challenges for a private business.

    Connected Pathways

    Following input from DT Hub members into a community-driven document, we have proceeded to reduce the number of use cases identified during the Pathway to Value Workshop from 28 down to 12: Open Sharing of Data Asset Registration Scenario Simulation Occupant/User Management Environmental Management Traffic Management Process Optimization Asset Management Carbon Management Resource Management Resilience Planning Risk Management Using these use cases, we can begin to explore how the National Digital Twin (NDT) programme can support members of the DT Hub in realizing their value. One way of doing so is by identifying what parts of these use cases need to be developed via the Commons Stream as part of the Information Management Framework (IMF). The reasoning being these 12 use cases are: Horizontal. Meaning that they can be applied within several sectors and their respective industries; and High-value. Meaning that they can achieve a return on investment. Positively, these use cases have a strong synergy with a similar schedule presented by Bart Brink of Royal HaskoningDHV on a recent buildingSMART webinar on digital twins. By identifying DT Hub member horizontal, high-value, use cases we hope that their associated tasks, key performance indicators and federation requirements can be recommended for prioritization as part of the development of the Information Management Framework (IMF). At the beginning of June, CDBB released The Pathway Towards an Information Management Framework: A Commons for a Digital Built Britain, a report setting out the technical approach that will lead to the development of the National Digital Twin. Within the report it focuses on three key facets that will enable secure, resilient data sharing across the built environment: Reference Data Library. A taxonomy describing a common set of classes to describe the built environment; Foundation Data Model. An ontology outlining the relation between these classes or properties of these classes; and Integration Architecture. Exchange protocols to facilitate sharing of information, using these defined classes and relations between digital twins. As opposed to being released as a complete resource, we will likely see these facets developed organically as the NDT programme continues to follow its mantra of: As such, the key question isn’t “what should these facets include?” but “what should be included first?”. We hope to answer this question using these horizontal, high-value, use cases. EXAMPLE: “Environmental management”. At the beginning of 2020, news reports focused on air pollution and its link with infrastructure. In addition, many building assets may wish to monitor air quality due to its known impact on occupant performance. As a use case that is associated to regulatory compliance, productivity, and applicable to a breadth of assets Environmental Management may be a horizontal, high-value, use case. To support such a use case, the: Reference Data Library. May need to include classes such as: Temperature, Wind speed, Humidity, CO2, and PM2.5 as well as their associated units to enable the consistent recording of this information. Foundation Data Model. May need an ontology describing acceptable ranges and the relationship of air quality concepts to other classes such as Health and Productivity depending on the function being monitored; and Integration Architecture. May need to facilitate the sharing of information from sources such as other digital twins, as well as datasets from the Met Office and local governments. Simply put, by identifying these horizontal, high-priority, use cases, we may be able to begin accelerating the realization of their value by having the taxonomies, ontologies and protocols needed to facilitate them available at an earlier stage of the overall IMF development. And there we have it. As DT Hub members begin to consider how the information management framework may support their digital twin development as well as the national digital twin, which use cases do you think are the most horizontal and high-value? How do you think these facets might support your ability to undertake these use cases? Please feel free to add your thoughts below, or, alternatively, comment directly on the draft community-driven document which is, and will continue to be, progressively developed as member views are shared.
