What is a Digital Twin

A Digital Twin is a philosophy, a methodology of policies and processes implemented on a facility to ensure an accurate replication in a digital form of the operational and maintainable assets. It is the collective processes, systems and tools needed to accurately maintain the digital representation throughout the lifespan of the facility.

What a Digital Twin is Not

A Digital Twin is not just a 3D model. A 3D model, however, is most likely to be included in the Twin as it is easy for all staff, ireelevant of technology knowledge, to view the facility, plant, building or assembly line in a digital form.

It is not a single database. There are likely to be multiple databases, data sources, files and records that are included in the Twin which combines the information to a single-point for access.

A Digital Twin is not a cheap option. To realise the benefits that Digital Twins promise, an increase in the accuracy and records during all phases of the project, construction and operational lifespan of the facility needs to happen.

When does a Digital Twin Exist

A Digital Twin is dynamic with accurate information being updated. It only exists in the Operations phase of a facility, plant, manufacturing assembly line or building. Anything prior to the handover of the project or the startup of a facility is a static Digital Record.

    • Increased knowledge in the company about the facility and data in general
    • Increased data accuracy increasing reliability in the information
    • Efficient view on information via the 3D model and the numerous data sources
    • Ability to locate exactly every component of each type in case of manufacturer recall
    • More accurate forecasting
    • Better "just-in-time" spares management over time
    • Predictive analysis for failure rates
    • Pre-population of future projects and scopes of work
    • Increased rotating equipment monitoring and recording
  • System Cost - Technological solution price, upkeep yearly costs, training schedules and onboarding information
  • True Cost - Calculations of the true cost of maintaining the data quality, ensuring continual compliance throughout the life of the facility, enabling Facilities Management to the same standards and the cost of not ensuring quality


  • Manufacturing - Not only gaining from having a live Twin of the process but also building Digital Twin components in to the products they produce for their clients to benefit from the enhanced data
  • Heavy Industry - Gains the most from an accurate Digital Twin of the facility, allowing the full range of benefits to be observed
  • Buildings - An accurate ROI needs to be calculated to ensure an overall benefit after a Digital Twin deployment. The risks are higher in the building industry to actually gain from the benefits
  • Hospitals & Schools - Incorporating the recent Buildings Safety Act, the 'golden thread of truth' and govenrment regulations to Digital Twins
