Output: Our result is the Digital Twin. Based on the BIM methodology, the 3D models are merged and automated with sensors, building scans and documents – of course, web-based and machine-readable.
The Digital Twin becomes the digital mirror image of the real structure. As a digital entity, its life cycle extends far beyond that of the building. The constant target/current status comparison between the digital entity and the real structure enables an overview of the entire life cycle. Through this, additional opportunities emerge during ongoing operations in the coming decades.
Constant access to a wide range of information from planning and construction simplifies existing processes. Analyses and evaluations from real-time sensor data enable predictions and simulations. Renovations, maintenance and conversions are based on the entire history of the building. The asset management, the operative FM area, the due diligence of building assessments and the digital monitoring of technical building services are further examples of the vast possibilities.
