Digital Twin Reshaping Project Management

By Construction Tech Review | Friday, May 31, 2019

FREMONT, CA: A digital twin as its name implies, is a perfect synthetic replica of a real-world physical object. The bridge between an original world with the digital world is allowing a steady analysis and monitoring of data to identify and pre-determine problem. The project managers decipher structural errors and develop new opportunities to plan further processes using simulations through statistical analysis. The experts are considering making a shift in the entire management procedure by integrating digital twins.

The redundant way of traditional building procedures is in desperate need for an upgraded Building Information Modeling (BIM) platform to share and exchange data in real time. The ability to receive data instantaneously provides infinite risk management possibilities which help the worker to perform in a trouble-free environment. Aon, an insurance risk management company, estimated a 40 percent elimination of transferring information between a management team and a typical worker. The probability of degradation of data is directly proportional to the number of workers between a management team and a field professional. The common data environment not only eliminates the data degradation possibility but also showcases information across all the stake-holding entities.  The digital twin technology deploys a roadmap or a blueprint for establishing an information exchange protocol.

The ability to construct projects virtually before the actual construction procedure provides a zero cost substitute for traditional trial and error methodology. The virtual twin provides a collaborative and management friendly virtual environment where problems can be addressed and manipulated. The ‘digital twin one model approach’ is a platform that cut-shorts the decision-making time and can assist in coordinating building life cycles. The $1.2 billion, 350000 sf JW Marriott expansion project in Los Angeles is one of the prime examples of the digital twin one model approach. The workers along with the owners and the developers established the virtual replica of the entire building process, which provides a flexible curb to the management and construction team. The integration of technology in the construction process is a necessary step for building a profitable mega-brand.
