Digital Twin

At Binnies, we believe a digital twin should be an integrated, accurate digital representation of a physical asset, its systems and processes. For the user, a digital twin must drive value in the physical world by having the functionality to optimise and to ‘scenario the decisions’ necessary to proactively manage an asset throughout its entire life cycle.

Key to the success of a digital twin is the ability to integrate the multiple disparate data sets and applications necessary to drive complex decisions and actions. Working in alignment with the Gemini Principles created by the Centre for Digital Built Britain, we have adopted a common framework for developing digital twin capability that starts with the end user. This framework helps ensure that digital twins are designed around value and can continue to evolve to accommodate new data, analytical methods and visualisation needs.

The Binnies team can help you implement this framework by providing both the products and services necessary for success. We have worked on Anglian Water’s Strategic Pipeline Grid and Yorkshire Water’s Dynamic Maintenance Programme. Our products and services include design sprint services to gather and validate user requirements, data engineering, cloud-based architecture design and integration services. Our data science team can also assist with the creation of analytics and visualisations, either within your enterprise applications or through our digital twin platform, HELIX, which utilises our ecosystem of digital partner products.
