Take BIM Processes to the next level with Digital Twins
The world is in transition. Challenges and opportunities arise with increasing frequency, customers are more demanding, and societal expectations are higher. These changes, combined with the rapid rate of digital innovation, are forcing significant business transformation across almost every sector – and widescale strategic changes for many organisations.
Embracing Building Information Modelling (BIM) has been a valuable step in this transformation journey. By using BIM methodologies and standards to collaboratively create digital representations of assets, organisations have brought new consistency and efficiency to their design, construction and operation.
But BIM isn’t a technology or asset that you can simply deploy to modernise operations and then forget about. It’s a process, and the key to long-term success and value within any process is intelligent evolution.
BIM has proven itself as a valuable mechanism for connecting information and ideas between different stakeholders. Yet, despite its aim to link the design and asset management phases of a project, it’s often used solely as a 3D-modelling tool for design and construction stages and misses the chance to demonstrate its value through the asset lifecycle.
Now, it’s time for forward-thinking leaders to evolve their outputs from BIM processes beyond design and construction and find new ways of deepening the use of collaborative data models in operational strategies through digital twin adoption.
