YEA Tech Talk Series – digital twins for engineering: theory and practice


In this session, Stephen will talk about Beca’s flagship Digital Twin product FACILITYtwin, what it does and how it is used in the real world. Stephen believes that digital twins is the future way in which all engineering information will be experienced.

In this session you will learn:

  • How to identify the components of a digital twin
  • The benefits and outcomes of digital twins for engineering
  • Some worked examples of digital twins in use for real life engineering projects
