The Smart Cities Council has been stewarding the creation of a Digital Twin Strategy for Australia and New Zealand. Through the Smart Cities Council Digital Twin Task Force, and subsequent involvement from a broader contributor group, more than 150 people have provided input and feedback.
The Draft Strategy has been in development since March 2020, with the document maintained in a Google Doc environment for easy access and revision and recommendation tracking. Responses to comments and questions are also responded to and resolved, to maintain transparency.
This approach to Strategy development has encouraged contribution from government, industry and academic partners from across the region.
The Strategy is providing a series of goals, principles, priorities and recommendations to help realise the value and build a Digital Twin ecosystem and marketplace across the Australia New Zealand region.
It will provide a foundation for subsequent work by government and industry in helping shape a Digital Twin standards development processes, technical and strategic guidance materials and policy and programs to build and activate the Digital Twin marketplace.
How do we anticipate the Strategy will be used?
Policy makers - to shape their policy making
Practitioners and advisors - to align their advice and support to clients
Vendors - to align their products and services
Academics - to identify research opportunities
Asset owners and operators - to seek opportunities to improve performance of assets and direct investments.
The Strategy is in a final drafting phase and will reach an important milestone at the end of February with a formal draft released for wider stakeholder review.
The Draft Strategy evolves each day with real-time contributions being added by stakeholders. Every Friday the Smart Cities Council Digital Twin Task Force meets to review progress and refine the document
