Who is the Royal HaskoningDHV Digital Twin Team?
Digital Twins have the potential to radically transform the way we think and operate as a society - providing the insight and agility needed to turn reactive decision-making into proactive problem-solving.

Driven by real-time data, a digital twin is a virtual mirror of a real-world asset, process or entire system, like a supply chain or city. This mirror provides insight into how that asset or process behaves now, how it behaved in the past and how it will behave under a variety of predicted or simulated conditions. We unite these insights through state-of-the-art game engine based, 3D (AR/VR) interfaces. These Digital Twins help to improve decision-making, optimise processes, manage risk and develop more informed solutions to today’s big societal and environmental challenges.

Goal of the Digital Twin team is to integrate and productise Royal HaskoningDHV Digital Twin software capabilities, making it possible to deliver more and better software services to more clients. Digital Twin Team is part of the Business Unit Software, working according to SAFe principles (Scaled Agile Framework).  The market focus of our Business Unit software is Water (solving Global Water issues) and Industry.
