Nemetschek Group Shakes Up the Industry by Launching First Horizontal and Open Digital Twin Platform dTwin

Munich, 18 October 2023 – The Nemetschek Group today announced the availability of its SaaS Digital Twin platform, dTwin. The horizontal, open platform delivers data-driven insights and helps customers to efficiently manage facilities from design to operations. It is the first solution in the industry that fuses all data sources of a building in one overarching view.

From planning through construction to the operation of a building, there are enormous amounts of data created by multiple stakeholders. However, this valuable information resides mostly in silos and thus becomes inaccessible throughout a building’s lifecycle. This results in major inefficiencies due to constant and tedious re-work. Moreover, outdated and incomplete information leads to poor and error prone decisions which negatively affect the performance of buildings and increase operational costs. The new Nemetschek solution dTwin is bringing together all relevant information from CAD/BIM, IWMS, and more with the real-time streams from building operations and all other sources that can be connected via the open API interfaces, thus bridging the gap between Design, Construction, and Operations and enabling a true open data driven Building Lifecycle Intelligence™ approach.

“Our new digital twin solution dTwin significantly enhances visibility, increases efficiency, and enables data-driven decision-making”, says César Flores Rodríguez, Chief Division Officer Planning & Design and Digital Twin at the Nemetschek Group. “Particularly the fusion of various data sources in dTwin is a strong differentiator compared to other solutions in the market.”

Dr. Jimmy Abualdenien, Head of Digital Twin Product at the Nemetschek Group, adds: “dTwin intelligently structures the information and properly links it across systems, throughout the complete lifecycle of a building. The benefit is harmonized information streaming from various data sources.”

A digital twin is a digital replica of a physical asset; this may be a component, a system, or a whole building. More importantly, the virtual replica is continuously fed with real-time information from the physical object, reflecting its current state. With this, a digital twin not only allows for accurate visualizations, but moreover derives insights through analysis, simulations, and optimizations.

With dTwin, decision makers can efficiently track, filter and query all relevant information and derive purpose-tailored insights. Real-time dashboards reveal operational insights and complete reports, delivering project information and analysis to different stakeholders – from AEC service providers to operators and owners.
