Digital Rail 2023 BIM & Digital Twins Podcast

Posted: 15 January 2024 | | No comments yet

Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital twins have the potential to take railway processes to the next level, leading to improved efficiency, reduced costs, and improved safety. This panel will discuss how investing in these technologies can provide long-term benefits for railway companies and their customers, and how BIM and digital twins are already making an impact in the sector.

Moderator: Andy Doherty


“Digital Twins doesn’t seem to have specific experts but people who straddle other topics too. There needs to be more dedication for long-term visions to be realised and allow us to reap the benefits.”

Why is so much collected data wasted? Could imagination be the key to what the future holds for Digital Twins? Is there an end-destination for digitalisation? What if Digital Twin isn’t the answer? What can we do to fill the skills vacuum?

“Railways have a habit of customising things to railways, but this is a much broader topic and we need to open up to other industries to make the most of this technology and thrive in future.”
