Digital Twins 101: Enhancing workflow efficiency and cost-effectiveness through advanced simulation technologies

13 June 2024


Join this live webinar to explore how digital twin technology is not just a tool for visualisation but a platform for innovation and efficiency in the rail industry. Whether you are looking to implement your first digital twin project or scale an existing one, this webinar will provide you with the knowledge and insights needed to make informed decisions.

Arcadis webinarDigital twin technology has emerged as a revolutionary tool in engineering, allowing businesses to create highly accurate simulations of physical assets, systems, or processes. These digital replicas not only enable real-time monitoring and pre-emptive fault detection but also facilitate a deeper understanding of asset performance under various scenarios, thus enhancing operational efficiency and reducing expenses significantly.

Join us as we delve into the world of digital twins, exploring their relevance within rail infrastructure. This webinar will cover the fundamental concepts of digital twin technology, differentiating between digital twins, digital models, and digital shadows, and discussing their respective impacts on the industry. We will examine digital twins use cases, highlighting the substantial benefits they offer in terms of cost reduction and workflow optimisation.

Who Should Attend:

This webinar is designed for professionals in the rail industry, including engineers, operation managers, and maintenance technicians, as well as IT professionals and decision-makers looking to enhance their asset management strategies and operational frameworks. We look forward to meeting old and new industry colleagues on 13th June 2024.
