What is a Digital Twin Software?

A digital twin software allows you to create a digital replica of a real-world object, process, or system.

By analyzing, simulating, and optimizing the performance of elements, this replica can help save time, resources, and money.

Through the use of a digital twin software, the design, construction, and maintenance processes for buildings, infrastructure, and other architectural components can all be improved.

What types of systems can be replicated with a digital twin software?

You can replicate digital and physical systems in a virtual environment using a digital twin software. It's a specific technology that enables the creation of virtual representations of devices, products, processes or services. These models can be used to forecast performance in the future as well as monitoring and managing systems in real time.

Systems that can be easily replicated with a digital twin software are: machinery, distribution networks, control units, civil and energy infrastructures, vehicles, buildings, cities, etc.

Digital replicas can also be used by organizations to develop prototypes and interactive 3D presentations of the entire process or service.

What are the most used types of digital twin software in the AECO sector?

There are different types of digital twin software, depending on the specific needs of the construction and infrastructure industry.

Among the most popular, we have:

  • 3D digital twin software: these software solutions allow you to create extremely detailed 3D models of buildings, infrastructures and other architectural elements. Thanks to these models, it is possible to analyze and optimize the performance of the structures quickly and efficiently;
  • digital twin BIM software: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a design methodology that uses digital models to manage information and processes related to a building or an infrastructure. A digital twin BIM software integrates BIM with digital twins, offering a complete system for the design, construction and maintenance of structures;
  • digital twin simulation software: these types of applications allow you to simulate the behavior of structures and plants in different situations, such as in the case of natural events, aging of materials or the effect of design changes. Thanks to these simulations, it's possible to test and optimize solutions before implementing them in real life.

Why use digital twin software in construction?

Using a digital twin software to design and manage a building or infrastructure, offers numerous advantages and benefits.

A few examples:

  • it improves the efficiency during design, reducing errors and costs associated with inadequate interventions while favouring the construction of durable and quality buildings and infrastructures;
  • it allows you to test possible choices in terms of technological solutions, materials, sites...;
  • it allows you to simulate performance and solutions before implementing them in reality;
  • it can increase efficiency in managing the various building systems and maintain high standards of comfort;
  • it allows you to monitor conditions, performance and energy consumptions of structures and plant systems in real time;
  • it provides useful information to understand the behavior of objects, levels of degradation and functionality; over time, so as to proactively schedule maintenance interventions throughout their entire life cycle;
  • it improves communication, collaboration , sharing and exchange of information between the various teams involved in the project.
