  2. 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 accomp

    Digital Twins Standards Roadmap Published

    Hi there! I am interested in the British National Digital Twin. This website helps me a lot.

    Digital twin Internship

    Hi Amir, great to have you here. Let us know if you're successful 😀
  5. Hi @besse the Digital Twin Toolkit can help with this, let us know if you need any more help
  6. Firstly, thank you to everyone who joined the concepts and principles standards workshop on the 11th of February. With 70+ attendees and a wealth of engagement, I feel that we managed to make some real progress in establishing the DT Hub community's views on the future BSI Flex standard. As mentioned during the workshop, the slide deck presented will be given to the technical author and advisory group for consideration, acting as a seed for further standardisation development. A copy of the slide deck used with the comments and changes incorporate is available here. In this article, I
  7. 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

    Confused buyers don't buy digital twins

    I tend to agree with you Vladimir, because the last thing we need is mis-selling in this area in the way that we've seen BIM wash, but I know that Michael Grieves would argue that a virtual model for simulation purposes was the first digital twin at NASA (that was then used for managing the asset once it was in space). So perhaps we're in danger of being too focused on the built environment where we have developed our own terms for 3D models with embedded information aka BIM which has its own problem, what is BIM?! The lines are very grey and Digital Twins could well have the same issue.

    Consolidating Concepts: Gemini Principles

    Hi @tombartley, thank you for this. I'm glad you support the general premise, and I agree aspects like Applications (Uses) and Observable elements are important. The goal of the workshop on the 11th is to test/challenge these headings with the community so Benefits may fall out. As I mentioned in the previous post, I've (shamelessly) taken the clause structure from the manufacturing standard and adapted the headings to suit. As the scope relates to an overview and principles standard (like ISO 19650-1) it behaves more like a guide to inform further standardization as opposed to a code

    The National Digital Twin Legal Implications

    @James C, A very astute observation and excellent feedback. Thank you. You are entirely right that there is a story that needs to be told on how the emergence of an NDT works outside of the technical narrative that we have chosen to lead off with; keeping fairly close to home in recent times, to ensure that the message has the right starting point. There are of course significant areas of impact on areas such as finance and underwriting, where the availability of better decision making and risk visibility mechanisms could do lots for the reduction of WACC/hurdle rates for infrastructur
  12. It is proposed that the Information Management Framework (IMF) for the creating of a National Digital Twin will consist of three technical elements: the Foundation Data Model (FDM), Reference Data Library (RDL) and Integration Architecture (IA). The IMF will underpin the creation of an environment which supports the use, management and integration of digital information across the life-cycle of assets. The IMF will also enable secure, resilient information sharing between organisations and will facilitate better decision making across sectors. The National Digital Twin Program
  13. 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

    [Very very draft] HE DT Policy

    oh man this is big, I've skimmed it, but I'll come back to it in earnest soon @Ian Gordon. From my first pass the tone is right and it doesn't read like policy statements of old that sought to write in stone eternal truths and irrefutable facts with thou shalts and orders from on high, but ultimately were trying to nail jelly to the wall. This reads like something that clearly sets out the philosophy, the context and the direction of travel for digital twins in HE that understands the fluid nature of the situation and is ready to adapt to that.

    What is the difference between Twins & BIMs

    I stole a lot of this content and wrote the following: Our definition of a Digital Twin is as follows: A Digital Twin is a digital representation of a physical thing (and its operation) that one can query. This definition helps us to distinguish between the concept of a Digital Twin, and the more established practice of BIM. The key differences are: Digital Twins can and should be part of the construction phase, but the focus of their use is on the operation of existing physical assets (e.g. the 99%+ of assets that are not currently under construction). Within our organisa

    ISO and Digital Twin Definitions

    In IEC Smart Cities Systems Committee we are working on a definition from our perspective. Our draft is: Digital Twin formal, explicit, computer-readable and computer-executable digital representation of an object or system that allows a computer to understand that object or system Note 1 Digital twins can be made of material objects and systems (house, city, human, electrical distribution system etc.) and of immaterial objects (process, project plan, etc.) Note 2 Digital twins can be primary, when the digital representation is developed before the physical objec
