What to expect during the event
The talk focusses on the NEED and COMPULSION of Digital evolution in the larger infrastructure industry. Evolving 'Beyond BIM'. In comparison to other mature industries in adopting Digital Twin, the talk will dwell on the level of adoption of Digtalisation and creation of Digital Twin in every stage of the infrastructure life-cycle. Then I would dive deep in to dwell on evidence based productivity gain by adopting Digital twin in (a0 Planning state (b) design stage (c) Analysis stage (d) construction stage and (e) operation stage in the infrastructure projects. Finally the talk would dwell on challenges in system level Digital Twin creations.
