YEA Tech Talk Series – The digital engineering evolution has arrived


The Digital Engineering Evolution has arrived.

As Road and Rail Authorities throughout ANZ begin to develop and embrace Digital Engineering processes and standards, the broader industry is expected to deliver on these requirements.

It is obvious, the industry is being pushed into this paradigm shift.

However, the question needs to be asked: is the industry ready, and are you ready?

Most within the industry have adopted a BIM based workflow. However, the Digital Engineering evolution introduces the concept of Digital Twins. Digital Twins are presented in many and various forms, however, throughout the Project Delivery phase of a Road and Rail project, the BIM model becomes a central focal point for Digital Twin workflows

As the local industry shifts to this new digital driven paradigm, there are numerous opportunities for a new generation of engineers to embrace this new digital engineering evolution, and how to ensure the success of such an evolution.

In this webinar participants will learn:

  • Why is there a need for such a paradigm shift?
  • Who is taking the lead?
  • What is expected from the broader industry?
  • When will this likely occur?
  • How are software vendors approaching this challenge (the focus will be directed toward the Design phase within a Project Delivery process)?
  • How can Digital Twins be leveraged throughout the Design phase?
