The world is changing so fast that challenges and opportunities are frequently arising. These changes, linked with the fast rate of digital changes, are driving vital business transformation in the construction industry – and internal operational, strategic shifts for many organizations.
BIM service providers in the USA are struggling to deliver more robust and innovative operating models. This post explores how digital twins can promote BIM methods to add sustainable value and competitive advantages to construction businesses.
Adopting Building Information Modeling (BIM) has been a proper step in this transformation process. Using BIM methodologies and standards to create digital representations of assets, construction companies have brought new efficiency to their construction process and operation.
But BIM is a process, and the key to long-term progress and value within any process is continuous creative development.
How Digital Twins Are Driving Operational Excellence?
BIM and digital twin strategies improve process visibility and support planning.
To continuously enhance and adapt projects to deliver more value to everyone once the work starts, you need real-time insights. That’s where digital twins become remarkably useful.
Digital twins let us visualize and optimize assets by providing live data, which offer real-time insights into performance and activity. To gain the highest value from every asset at every stage of the construction process, it’s essential to create a continuous digital twin, again through the BIM process. That twin will be the blueprint for future improvements.
Follow These Pointers for Robust Digital Twins
From cost control to enhanced performance, the advantages of using BIM processes to create digital twins are many.
But before building BIM outputs and connecting them with dynamic data sources, there are six key data considerations any business needs to make:
Data Integrity: Insights are only as good as your data. So, you should find a way to make sure that data keeps its integrity – and in a cost-effective way.
Granularity: Likewise, not all data included in the design is fit for operational use. You need to make decisions regarding what data sources are required to incorporate at design stages.
Legacy Data: Greenfield construction projects can wield the advantage of a blank canvas with a license to adopt a digital-first method from the outset. However, many a time, lack of data becomes a problem. Taking a digital-first modernization strategy, with a focus on data development, can improve the situation.
Workforce: Silos within companies can cause significant issues. To encourage teams to work together and collaborate easily to deliver the best results at each stage of the construction lifecycle.
Data Democratization: The choices should be to make data from digital twins accessible to the end-user without using complex IT technologies.
