Is there a need for Digital Triplets? Quadruplets? Siblings even? Part 1 - Nicolas Waern
Or is it just a lack of understanding thus far, as to what capabilities Digital Twins have? And the road towards Triplets, will lead to a slippery slope?
How can we adapt to a world that was, that is, and will be? How can we adapt to a future that is unknown? Can we make it known by utilizing the concept of Digital Twins, and go Beyond Buildings? Can we simulate the future, having done thousands of AI-driven simulations, and bring the solutions back to the now, knowing what the future will look like?
Back from the Future with Virtual Digital Twins
Is it possible to say that people should build the Digital Twin first, and then the physical counterpart will follow? Maybe it is just back from the future with Digital Twins, where the simulation side of things is added as one possible dimension of many capabilities of a Digital Twin initiative. But is it possible to get started on the Digital Twin Journey without having a physical asset? Is it more than possible and should even be recommended?
“Does the Digital Twin always need a physical counterpart?”
If the new construction of a hospital can re-use the intelligence from a demolished hospital (and or a virtual hospital) and modify it so that a new one can be built, and modified 95% faster than before to match the reality where it will be built. Is that not the true purpose of having Digital Twins? Transcending Product Management Lifecycles and into true meta-verse Enablement?
Where we can record reality, and truly transcend the shackles of having to do something in reality first, and only afterward utilize digital tools and technologies?
What’s the true purpose of Digital Twins that is different from other tools, technologies and concepts today?

Worthwhile context - "The Model 777, the first entirely new Boeing airplane in more than a decade, was the first jetliner to be 100 percent digitally designed using three-dimensional computer graphics. Throughout the design process, the airplane was “pre-assembled” on the computer, eliminating the need for a costly, full-scale mock-up." https://www.boeing.com/history/products/777.page Needless to say, Boeing had 'data' from more than a few 'old hospitals' that it leveraged.
I think diving deeper into how this digital twin first approach works will help demystify the idea for the readers and prove that what you’re proposing here is not far fetch at all!
That’s definitely what hit it home for me.
