Digital twins have the potential to revolutionize the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry by enabling more efficient and effective decision-making throughout the design, construction, and operation of buildings and other structures. One of the main ways in which digital twins can be used in the AEC industry is to optimize the design of buildings and other structures. By simulating the performance of different design options, digital twins can help engineers and architects identify the most effective and efficient solutions. Digital twins can also be used to optimize the construction process, by simulating the construction sequence and identifying potential bottlenecks or risks.
Digital twins can also be used to monitor and optimize the operation of urban infrastructure and systems – to track the performance of transportation networks, identify maintenance needs, and predict potential failures or problems. They can also be used to optimize the delivery of public services, such as emergency response, waste management, and public health.
This session will be lead by Ron Zahavi, one of the co-founders of the Digital Twin Consortium, and will explore the potential and future of digital twins for AEC, and highlight case studies that are bringing digital twins to large-scale projects, including campuses, smart cities and more.
