Emerging Technology Ventures Inc. and its research and development partners, Navajo Technical University and New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology , are proposing to develop and demonstrate a “Digital Twin (DT) Data Acquisition System for Institutional Facility Management”. The innovation addresses Industry 4.0 digital transformation initiatives in Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Facility Management (FM) which have created critical demand for up-to-date digitized building assets for effective implementation in predictive, condition-based maintenance (CBM) strategies in FM. The team’s proposed use of autonomous, multi-modal systems and analytics to create DTs representing near real-time status of the built environment for FM offers an opportunity for responsive, labor efficient CBM.
The effort responds to NASA's digital transformation goals for model-based solutions in the area of “Digital Twin” Institutional Management of Health/Automated Decision Support of Agency Facilities that would greatly enhance operational efficiencies in its aging facilities.
The effort responds to NASA's digital transformation goals for model-based solutions in the area of “Digital Twin” Institutional Management of Health/Automated Decision Support of Agency Facilities that would enhance operational efficiencies in its aging facilities. The proposed solution will support localized and distributed management of NASA's facility constellation providing near real-time status of the facility environment for predictive condition based maintenance and offer possible adaptation for application in space environments.
