Infrastructure managers, suppliers as well as remote repair crews and station staff all stand to benefit from having a digital twin of a railway.
With a digital twin infrastructure managers can formulate and evaluate precise requirements for their new system and avoid costly mistakes and ensure the right system is built in the first place.
Suppliers can use the Digital Twin as input to the detailed design, using automation tools for code generation, test and verification, further shortening project schedules and reducing costs.
With access to a real-time 3D representation of the entire railway infrastructure – maintenance, repairs and upgrades can be performed faster. The proactive decisions possible with a digital twin, can prevent safety hazards and costly mistakes while improving overall efficiency.
