The next frontier of technological advancement is not new treatment processes or equipment, but instead lies in dynamic process simulation models, advanced visualization techniques, and/or data-driven analysis, leveraged through that can be used for process analysis and project optimization.

Digital twins allow solutions to be investigated and tested without putting equipment, public health or the environment at risk.

These realistic simulations of facility behavior allow organizations to assess “what if” scenarios in the digital domain and solve for some of the most perplexing challenges, before they can occur — enhancing system understanding and achieving improved system design, optimized operations performance and reduced capital and operating costs.

By 2020, IDC expects that 30% of Forbes Global 2000 companies will use data from digital twins of Internet of Things (IoT) -connected products and assets to improve product innovation success rates and organization productivity.

Here’s how…

Digital Twin and Analytics Improve Operations, Minimize Costs

By 2020, researchers predict that companies using digital twins of IoT-connected assets will achieve gains of up to 25%. What if we showed you how a Jacobs-designed simulation platform is driving savings in the industrial water space using digital twin analytics to minimize resource usage?
