    Estates Managment

    Thank you Andy, I think you've summised my frustration rather well. We're not as unique as one might think; if you think about doc control and project management software and the uniqueness they have to manage but still manage to be flexible or we find there is a strong range of offerings. There are a lot of mid sized companies who need something, not just retailers, and the core of what we all do is very similar but we all have to compromise and customise because we're not the big fish. However, together we are quite a big fish and that's part of my point. If we are seen on mass ther

    Collaborate on the IMF - join our new networks

    I think I have to agree with 'some people' mentioned above. With a prototype (or a mockup), it will be helpful for getting people's feedback, and help the process of concensus building. Otherwise, the idea or concept of national digital twin can be intengible. I guess "slice of an IMF " maybe considered a type of prototype. Would love to join both Communities to explore.
  5. 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
  6. Dear DT Hub Community Does it feel like getting started on a Digital Twin journey is too hard? Firstly I agree with you and believe that it won't stay this way for long (believe.. he says!). After several years working in UK infra, I now see more of the "realities" of digital twins.... I've worked as the buyer, seller, and builder of digital twins. I am trailing this theory with a major UK Infrastructure Operator (early stages), however, I would really like to determine the interest of this group because I want to draft up a proposal/action plan. To give you an idea th

    Demonstrator project

    Hi @Samuel A Chorlton - no problem I have also upload into resources the “Connected Highway Demonstrator" paper that goes with event. It shows how easy it can be to federate IoT Data in Infrastructure Digital Twins. I would welcome any feedback and/or comments from members Connected Highway.pdf
  8. Autonomous vehicles require digital maps to navigate safely, smart cities requires knowledge of urban features to be managed appropriately, and digital twins require physical assets to be recognised before they can simulate predictive models. All those applications require a detailed representation and understanding of the spatial environment. The ability to create intelligent 3D models of the real world is a critical enabler for the reduction in cost and programme of major design activities. For instance, Highways England is one of the pioneers in developing parametric design solutions for co
  9. @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?)
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyIwEwEfqFA Interesting application regarding the monitoring of people movements for supporting coronavirus management at St Pancras station in real-time. Interesting to hear viewpoints regarding whether or not we fully recognise this as a Digital Twin in not.

    Digital Twin and IoT

    Sort of 2 questions What piece of IoT kit would make your Digital Twin more effective What IoT have you found that transforms your knowledge of business (helps you build a better DT) So what IoT would you like, what have you found/used?

    DTs for Smart Cities

    This webinar may be of interest from Smart Cities World: Leverage digital twins to optimise municipal operations Find out how Gwinnett County (USA) is unifying IT/OT/IoT systems to provide complete visibility to all municipal data. Using a Digital Twin of their municipal operations allows faster, more informed decisions and speeds crisis response while lowering their total cost to operate their services. https://www.smartcitiesworld.net/webinars/webinar-centralized-command-and-control-of-multi-site-municipal-water-operations

    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
  18. 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

    45 minute Cities

    Hi all, Alasdair Rae of University of Sheffield has published a blog piece about travel within 26 cities using open data to visualize how far can you travel from to reach a central train station by 08:45 on a Monday morning. http://www.statsmapsnpix.com/2020/03/45-minute-cities.html The ability to produce this visualization seems very relevant to the NDT programme. Particularly if you could simulate traffic interventions to see how it improved access across the city. Cardiff has fared quite well. How has your city performed?
