From design and construction to continuing operations and maintenance, building and facilities processes can be represented by millions of data points. A ‘Digital Twin’, the digitized version of the physical structure, can serve as a repository of data from BIM, the BAS and sensor networks associated with the building’s infrastructure, as well as incorporate information from a variety of feeds from facility and business processes. Ideally, the digital replica would continuously update itself, as it is fed near real-time data from actual operations. AI and machine learning integrations help to uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can be applied to the real building. This session will explore the benefits of Digital Twins in the smart building industry.
