 What to expect during the event

What are digital twins, and how can they be used to your advantage? The definition and operation of digital twins are covered in great detail in online resources. Few of these explanations go into detail about what the Digital Twin solution entails and how to benefit from it; the majority of them only cover a few aspects of it. Digital Twins are enriched 3D replicas of physical assets that are exact replicas of reality. The virtual version's features, abilities, and additional data may be utilized to research, examine, and improve the performance of the asset. In contrast to Building Information Modeling (BIM), which is a passive digital representation of a facility's physical and functional characteristics, the asset becomes digitally "alive" when its performance can be tracked over time using real-time and simulated sensor readings from a computer, smartphone, or tablet. Based on this definition, we will use this session to discuss a number of topics related to digital twins, such as what they are, how to assess a client's need for one, how to promote and explain it to the client, how to create a project for digital twins, and how to choose and tailor the available technology to address the client's particular problems. This will show you how to identify possible risks, mitigate them, put the best solution in place, organize it properly, and communicate the findings to the client in a trustworthy and dependable way.
