Digital twins for building owners are emerging tools for facilities management, operations, and maintenance. The large benefits of digital twins to overall businesses beyond traditional practice are just being realized. As an iteration of digital twins from the digital manufacturing, product, and machine space, the current industry definition is this: Digital twins are software representations of assets, and processes that are used to understand, predict, and optimize performance in order to achieve improved business outcomes. Digital twins consist of three components: a data model, a set of analytics or algorithms, and knowledge. This roundtable will be jointly hosted by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts (WDPR), Brandon Wlosinski and Autodesk Consulting, and Dorian Chau to explore, define, and understand what digital twins mean for the building industry today. Bob Bray, senior director at ConstrucTwin at Autodesk, will provide his insights to the roundtable, as will other invited enterprise building owners.
