The Power of Digital Twins

Digital Twin Advantages

Clear Communication and Visualization

A digital twin provides a unique and comprehensive ‘as if on site’ view of the job site replacing 2D drawings

Better and Quicker Decisions

The ability to readily access real time information helps engineers make better decisions, which saves both money and time. By adopting digital twin technology, engineers can reduce the decision process to a handover scenario in less than one minute.

Improved Safety

Service professionals can assess potential safety hazards using 3D scans, allowing them to plan accordingly and take preventi ve measures. This helps minimize accidents, injuries, and associated costs.

Increased Accountability

Digital replicas can create a transparent and accountable environment. Technicians are able to refer back to 3D scans to demonstrate the scope of work to be completed, facilitating accurate task fulfillment.

Improved Planning, Quoting and Preparation

By sharing 3D scans with specialists in advance, contractors can utilize the 3D scans to generate accurate quotes or bids for maintenance tasks by having a digital model to virtually walk and observe. Accelerate the bidding process as travel is mitigated; a comprehensive understanding of the space, project scope, and potential complexities enables them to visualize more precise estimates,reducing the chances of unexpected cost overruns

Remote Troubleshooting

In some cases, service providers can offer remote troubleshooting while utilizing 3D scans to diagnose problems, propose solutions, and recommend the required parts or tools. This minimizes the need for physical visits, saving time and expenses associated with unnecessary travel.

Historical Documentation / Insurance Record

3D scans serve as valuable historical documentation of the object or space. Companies can maintain an archive of scans for future reference, making it easier to track changes, plan renovations, or address recurring maintenance issues – as well as providing information to the expert.

Increased Sustainability

Digital twin technology has proven to increase sustainability goals by improving asset efficiency and reducing the need to tra vel to worksites. Industrial companies among others have been commissioned with the duty to reduce carbon footprint. In brownfield engineering scenarios, 3D scan data is integrated into the heart of the digital twin to provide invaluable context to operations and maintenance data, supporting many use cases such as maintenance planning and workforce training. Laser scans in an industrial cloud solution efficiently minimize the travel cost to the existing facility and reduce its carbon footprint by having an updated model of its facility.
