Operational digital twins link real-time IoT data with digital representations of real-world processes to model what is happening and to optimize what is going to happen next. In 2021, Autodesk acquired Innovyze’s industry-leading water modeling solutions along with the Info360 SaaS platform delivering an operational digital twin for water catchment, treatment and distribution. Info360 joins together water simulation models used by most utilities worldwide with cloud technology, IoT monitoring, machine learning, AI, and physics-based modeling techniques to create a dynamic digital twin for the entire water processing cycle. We will demonstrate Info360. We will review trends in operational digital twins and how simulation models can move to the cloud to enable real-time simulation. We will review machine learning and AI modeling approaches that are being used to optimize in real time. We will assess the challenges in deploying these systems, and what you should do to prepare.
