It’s time to learn how to create, visualize and analyze digital twins
Since Bentley is a 3D company (CAD/GIS/Visualization, etc) they argue for the need to construct the digital twins. We fully agree, since we look one step further, how to utilize the digital twin.
The first step is the visualization of assets and historical data in a 3D model. But, the real usefulness comes when the digital twin is updated with real-time data and events from the real world, creating a digital mirror image. This is done through the integration with IoT. Then you will have a complete 3D dashboard to the real world, a control center where you can plan, act, simulate scenarios, and optimize depending what is happening right now.
The model will never be better than the access to data.
