This presentation will: introduce the National Digital Twin, explain what it is and why we need it, and outline what is being done to deliver it.
The National Digital Twin (NDT) is a big idea that promises enormous value for the people of the UK, both in the delivery of new assets and in the performance of our existing infrastructure. The key to releasing all that value is ‘better decisions’ because better decisions, based on better analysis of better data, lead to better outcomes for people, which is the essential promise of the Information Age. The NDT is not one massive model of everything, but an ecosystem of connected digital twins. And connecting digital twins is all about interoperability - enabling secure resilient data sharing across organisational and sector boundaries, but this requires data consistency that the market alone cannot initiate; it requires government-level leadership to set the rules for the industry.
Mark Enzer is a keen champion of innovation in the context of collaborative delivery models and he is particularly interested in transformational change in the infrastructure industry (including: digital transformation, Smart Infrastructure, low-carbon sustainable solutions, platform-based delivery and design for manufacture and assembly).
As Mott MacDonald’s Chief Technical Officer, he is accountable to the Executive Board for technical excellence across the Group. As the Chair of CDBB’s Digital Framework Task Group, Mark is contributing to the leadership of the National Digital Twin Programme.
Mark was the Digital Transformation workstream lead on “Project 13” for the Infrastructure Client Group, which represents the UK’s major infrastructure client organisations and he was the Lead Author of the Infrastructure Carbon Review, published by HM Treasury. Mark spoke to LCEC about Project 13, in March 2019; you can download his presentation at https://londonconstructingexcellence.org.uk/news/7572436
