  1. Digital Twin Toolkit

    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.

  2. Agile Standards White Paper

    This white paper explores an exciting new direction in the future of good practice – the potential to take an “agile” approach to the development of standards. It considers what is meant by, and included in, an agile approach and where applying this could be beneficial. It also forms an important contribution to the debate over how standards making can adapt to a new, faster paced world where best practices need to be shaped and refined by stakeholder communities in a form of “dynamic consensus”. The paper investigates the challenges and opportunities for everyone involved and offers guidance on when agile standards are most suitable and where they can deliver greatest value.

  3. Our Vision for the Built Environment

    With contributions from over 75 industry leaders and endorsed by more than 35 cross industry bodies spanning the UK built environment sector, the Vision describes the future we want: a built environment whose explicit purpose is to enable people and nature to flourish together for generations.
    For the first time in history, we have the tools and technology to work together to make this future vision a reality and to manage the built environment in a way that addresses the biggest challenges of our time, from the climate crisis to the COVID-19 pandemic. Aligned to the UK Government’s ambition to build back better, the simple yet radical Vision calls for people and nature to be at the heart of how we design, build, operate, and use our existing built environment. We must make better decisions now to deliver a better future for all.
    Across its programmes the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) is working towards better outcomes for people and the environment by using digital data well. As well as building a resilient and world-leading UK construction sector, this will serve as a platform for a sustainable and flourishing economy, society and environment.

  4. Digital Twin Navigator

    The Construction Innovation Hub (CIH) has published the Digital Twin Navigator, an interactive guide looking to help client bodies to embed digital twinning into a project from the earliest opportunity.
    Drawing upon some of the key definitions set out in the DT toolkit report (the use case framework, the DT sophistication levels, …), the Digital Twin Navigator offers specific guidance at an individual project level, focusing on how digital twins can be implemented for capital projects. Taking the construction of a new hospital as a worked example, the navigator suggests a 5-stage approach; from making the initial business case for a digital twin to refining and evaluating it throughout the different phases of the project.
    It also sets out key considerations for defining the requirements for a digital twin, highlighting the importance of interfacing and aligning digital twin strategy to the BIM, Soft landing and Facility management strategies - to build a holistic set of information requirements for the project both in the context of static and dynamic elements. The DT navigator also emphasises the importance of a “no regrets” approach, where alignment with the IMF will ensure that a digital twin can ultimately be part of an ecosystem of connected digital twins – a part of the National Digital Twin.

  5. Integration Architecture Pattern and Principles

    As set out in the Pathway to the Information Management Framework, the Integration Architecture is one of the three key technical components of the Information Management Framework, along with the Reference Data Library and the Foundation Data Model. It consists of the protocols that will enable the managed sharing of data across the National Digital Twin.
    In the Integration Architecture Pattern and Principles paper, the NDTp’s technical team set out key architectural principles and functional components for the creation of this critical technical component. The team defines a redeployable architectural pattern that allows the publication, protection, discovery, query and retrieval of data that conforms to the NDT’s ecosystem of Reference Data Libraries and the NDT’s Foundation Data Model.

  7. Pathway Toward and Information Management Framework: Summary of Consultation Responses

    In May 2020 the National Digital Twin programme (NDTp) published the Pathway to an Information Management Framework (IMF). The publication was accompanied by an open consultation to seek feedback on our proposed approach and to hear from across the community about how they thought the IMF should develop to support their use and adoption of it.  
    The consultation ran until the end of August, with ongoing engagement with the programme’s technical stakeholders, we received a great deal of valuable feedback. The full summary of the IMF Pathway Consultation Responses is published here today, written by Miranda Sharp, NDTp Commons Lead.

  9. The Gemini Principles

    Digital twins of physical assets are helping organisations to make better-informed decisions, leading to improved outcomes.
    Creating an ecosystem of connected digital twins – a national digital twin – opens the opportunity to release even greater value, using data for the public good.
    This paper sets out proposed principles to guide the national digital twin and the information management framework that will enable it.
