The platform aims to harness the BIM data “created throughout the project lifecycle essential to creating a true digital twin of the asset.”
The following is a press release from software developer Autodesk announcing the public beta launch of Tandem, a digital tool that creates a virtual twin of a project. Autodesk Tandem was first introduced last fall during Autodesk University.
Autodesk Tandem Digital Twin Platform Launches for AEC
Autodesk strives to help the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry break down silos between their respective disciplines and along the entire project lifecycle. Through the digitization of design and construction, we see our customers addressing inefficient processes, lack of coordination, and wasted time and money. Today, with the availability of the public beta of Autodesk Tandem, a digital twin solution, we’re excited to help AEC professionals and their customers—the owners and developers of the built environment—take another giant leap forward. The end goal: ready-to-go operations that help owners get the most out of their investment, whether it’s a bridge, facility, building, or any other structure.
Autodesk Tandem is a digital twin platform that allows a building project to start digital and stay digital, from design to build to operations, and transforms rich data into business intelligence. Autodesk Tandem harnesses the building information modeling (BIM) data created throughout the project lifecycle essential to creating a true digital twin of the asset. At the project’s completion, the project team can deliver a comprehensive digital handover to owners of easily accessible and insightful data, accelerating operational readiness and empowering better business decisions.
Disorganized Data Means Lost Opportunities
That’s the vision, but the reality for much of the industry is different. Without a digital twin at handover, mounds of disorganized data in varying formats end up buried in electronic folders, rendering useless a treasure trove of valuable data insight. For an owner, that’s lost opportunity and money that cannot be recovered. Autodesk Tandem unlocks the treasure by freeing, organizing, and standardizing data from design and construction, creating a simple and intuitive digital replica of all the components, systems, and spaces in a facility.
