What is a Digital Twin and what does it mean for the AEC industry?

Digital Twins is a topic area that is being discussed more frequently across the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry with increasing excitement. However, there remain many misconceptions or differing points of view of what a Digital Twin is.

Digital Twins | A human perspective

Symetri recently hosted a workshop to gain insights into what Digital Twins means, the benefits of considering them, and different types of Digital Twins applied within the industry and other sectors. We were surprised to discover that their focus was predominately on the human aspect.
