Digital twins enter the mainstream with cloud service

November 12th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

Bentley Systems has announced new cloud services for infrastructure engineering digital twins. Digital twins are digital representations of physical assets and their engineering information that allow users to understand and model their performance in the real world over their lifecycle. Digital twins advance BIM and GIS through 4D. iTwin Services enable engineering firms to create, visualise and analyse digital twins of infrastructure projects and assets. The services federate digital engineering content from BIM design tools and multiple data sources, enable 4D visualisation of digital twins, and log engineering changes along a project/asset timeline, to provide an accountable record of who-changed-what-and-when. Engineering teams are using iTwin Services to conduct design reviews, validate design data, and generate design insights. Users of Bentley’s design applications can apply the iTwin Design Review service for ad hoc design reviews, and project teams using ProjectWise can add the iTwin Design Review service to their digital workflows to facilitate overall project digital twins.
