We would love to hear your feedback We are looking for case studies to showcase the benefits of this novel approach. Be one of the pioneers and share the outcomes of your workshops with the community in this thread Share your tips to help others run a successful workshop Raise any workshop related questions, whether it is about the preparation, facilitation, or post-workshop key steps, digital twin-related content and use of the Axis platform
  2. Visual intelligence is the ability to capture, connect and communicate information about spaces in real time. Then to instantly transform it through visualisation techniques into accurate, accessible, actionable data useable by anyone that needs. A process embedded in the simple digital twin but enabled by emerging technologies, specifically the digital integration between devices, enhanced by immersive technology and artificial intelligence. Think of visual intelligence as a compass. Without it, a vessel can’t make the most of its assets, is uncertain where it’s headed, how it will be impacted by the environment and how it can reach its destination with maximum efficiency and care for its crew. Businesses have to take certain actions to increase ROI, communicate to and manage disparate teams, automate with confidence, set out clear directions and grow faster. Connected and integrated data translated into visual intelligence enables these actions. It is the compass. Attached are some insight from a few companies who started with a simple digital twin – a connection of data – but who have embraced visual intelligence and what it means for them National Digital Twin presentation (1.1).pdf
  3. I came across an EU funded project "xr4all" which provides a development environment(among other things) for XR projects. The details are here: https://dev.xr4all.eu Will it be possible for the NDT programme to provide similar platform for DT community in the UK? It will help in fostering rapid collaboration and development of the DT ecosystem. Thanks and kind regards, Ajeeth

    Over the past decade, we have witnessed an unprecedented transformation in the Architecture, Engineering, Construction and Operation (AECO) industry in the UK but also abroad. From the early use of collaborative 3D technologies mandated as part of the UK Government Construction Strategy in 2011 (put into practice in 2016) which certainly accelerated the adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM); to the introduction and eventual fall from grace of Virtual Reality (VR), the buzzwords in this industry change as frequently as the trends at London Fashion Week. The nirvana of BIM supposedly promised the now infamous 20% construction cost savings that were nowhere to be seen. Therefore, there is no surprise the level of scepticism that any such a new concept receives. Thus, to avoid similar misconceptions from the past, we have contributed to the development of the Digital Twin Toolkit in order to first define what we mean by a digital twin and second to clarify the business case as well as the benefits this newly rediscovered concept brings. This whitepaper therefore expands on the toolkit by providing advice and suggestions from our own experience and the journey of the past ten years so as to avoid the same pitfalls that BIM has led to. A client claiming they have “BIM getting delivered next Thursday” only for the team to discover it is just a computer with a pre-installed Revit is one such example.

    Digital Twin Navigator

    Version 1.0.0


    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.

    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.

  7. Last month, on Thursday 25 February, techUK released a landmark report ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’, alongside the much anticipated publication of the CDBB’s ‘Digital Twin Toolkit’ report. Please see here for the full recording of the session: To kick-off, Tom Henderson (Programme Manager, Smart Infrastructure & Systems, techUK) thanked members of the Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) for their deep insight and hard work, welcoming the publication before running through the different parameters of techUK's report- highlighting the core strategic conclusions and recommendations (2:57) which focus on the need to: Develop a cross-cutting, interdisciplinary coordinating body to drive forward digital twin adoption and diffusion in the UK Demonstrate value from (and explore barriers to) the adoption and diffusion of digital twins via a series of strategic demonstrators Trigger the adoption of digital twins across the UK by exploring the development of an online digital twin procurement portal Work with industry to identify talent pipeline requirements and anticipate levels of future demand for skills across the UK’s digital twin ecosystem Fund a Net Zero 2050 digital twin demonstrator to establish the UK as a global leader in leveraging digital twins for decarbonisation Following the release of the techUK report, Sarah Hayes (Change Stream Lead, National Digital Twin Programme) provided an insightful overview of the NDTP and ran through the significance and findings of the newly released DT Toolkit (9:05), which looks at: What is a digital twin? What can a digital twin be used for? Key case studies How to build a business case template? How to develop a digital twin roadmap? Thanking the Toolkit team for their hard work and deep technical expertise, Sarah signposted the opportunity to continue engaging in the development and application of the DT Toolkit via the Digital Twin Hub – an online resource where you can learn more about emerging digital twin initiatives and share insights across the UK’s digital twin ecosystem. techUK looks forward to continuing work with the CDBB and encourages techUK members of all shapes and sizes to sign up for the DT Hub moving forward! Subsequently (23:30), delegates heard from the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Science, Research and Innovation – Amanda Solloway MP, who took the time to welcome the publication of the reports and expressed optimism around the role that digital twin technologies can play in enabling the UK to become a world-leading scientific superpower. In particular, the Minister discussed the link between digital twins and possibilities to drive prosperity, create new products, services, and jobs, and to transform public services. techUK would like to thank Minister Solloway for taking the time, and welcomes the Government’s recognition that digital twins are critical – not only for our recovery from the pandemic, but also to our long-term growth and productivity.

  9. The DT toolkit is a simple guide to the things you need to think about on your digital twin journey. It arose from the request we’ve heard from the DT Hub community “how do I make the business case for a digital twin”. In response, through the Gemini programme of the National Digital Twin programme, we’ve been able to bring together people who have been through or are going through the digital twin journey from different perspectives: consulting, technology development, legal and academic and who are willing to share their learning and expertise with the DT Hub community. The team first met back in September 2020 to discuss how we might put together a toolkit for making the business case. We discussed how it would need to focus on purpose, relevant examples, a roadmap and a usable business case template. We debated the use cases for articulating digital twin purpose and took this to a DT Hub workshop to garner community input to what is now a use case framework which is starting to resonate in meetings and presentations. We presented and discussed case studies of digital twins that have been developed or are being developed which can be found on the DT Hub. We spent a long time talking through the steps organisations need to go through to implement a digital twin and as a result produced the roadmap which you can find in the report. We talked about digital twin sophistication levels. And members of the team worked together to really think through what a business case template might look like and what you would need to put together to get sign off for your digital twin. This template is now freely available as a resource for you to download and use. This DT toolkit report is a true collaboration of diverse minds working in the field of digital twins who are open to challenge and debate. The result is a toolkit that you can use to set you and your team on your digital twin journey. As with all journeys, the toolkit is now at its first pit-stop and the toolkit team are going to use it with their clients and provide feedback on how to improve and fine tune it. We invite you to do the same, read the toolkit report, try it out and tell us what you think. We are very grateful for the passion and dedication that the Toolkit Team have shown towards putting the toolkit together. Working with limited resources we have been reliant on our volunteer’s goodwill and conviction that the work of the National Digital Twin programme is something they want to be involved in and contribute to. Drawing from across the disciplines and different organisations, we’ve been really boosted by the support we’ve received from a team of people going through the digital twin journey and enthusiastic about sharing their experience and ideas with the wider community. If you would like to share your learning and experience with the community and take part in the next iteration of the Toolkit, reach out to us. We can all work together to make this a valuable community resource. “The toolkit captures know-how and insights from people with experience of developing and using digital twins. Steps are given that provide the reader with valuable guidance for justifying, building and exploiting twins, increasing value and reducing the risk of change.” Dr Peter van Manen, Frazer-Nash Consultancy “Working collaboratively with people from a variety of industries and experiences, has been not only invaluable to the construct of the Toolkit but also, fun, inspiring and wholesome to participate in.” Peter Curtis, Sopra Steria “Working on the DT toolkit has been an excellent way to socialise my thoughts and the Catapult’s work on Digital Twins, while increasing my understanding of DTs, through discussions with the other team members.” Ron Oren – Connected Places Catapult

    Digital twins are already enabling the UK to deliver on Net Zero 2050 objectives, supporting the reduction of social inequalities, and driving R&D-led growth. Looking to the future accelerating the development, adoption, and diffusion of connected digital twins is fast becoming a national-level imperative. However, the term ‘digital twin’ itself is often seen as a buzzword that frequently creates confusion, and there is a lack of consensus around how digital twins can be leveraged to best effect. With this in mind, techUK’s Digital Twins Working Group (DTWG) has produced a landmark report- ‘Unlocking Value Across the UK’s Digital Twin Ecosystem’- which is scheduled to be released on Thursday 25th February from 09:00 – 11:00. 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. On the same day the Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) National Digital Twin programme (NDTp) will be launching the Digital Twin toolkit report. This toolkit is aimed at helping organisations to develop the business case for digital twins. The toolkit has been produced through a collaboration with techUK and NDTp Gemini supporters. On the day, we will be bringing together key stakeholders and thought leaders from across the ecosystem, and providing short introductions to both reports and opening up for questions from the floor. Please feel free to reach out to the techUK team (Tom.Henderson@techUK.org) and the NDTp team (ndtprogramme@cdbb.cam.ac.uk) if you would like to learn more about the reports!

  14. One might argue that the foundation for any Digital twin is understanding what information is required for the business to exist and deliver on its strategy and client needs. Without this, how do we know what information to include in our Digital Twin and how our assets are performing in carrying out this objective? I'm delivering a 3 hours free webinar on the 12th August to show a simple method for extracting OIRs from an executive document and specifying what is critical to understanding the business benefits to owning a Digital Twin. be great if you can join me!https://lnkd.in/dxF6BEN
