Enterprise systems have been evolving with advances in computer and software. For a better quality of infrastructure, project stakeholders are now connecting all ecosystems, including infrastructure maintenance, even new urban developments.

Extension coverage of digital infrastructure

Cities and territories are now focusing on how they can make a better ecosystem for the cities’ infrastructures at the start of any project. Virtual twins of infrastructure help create future cities and territories developments. There are business opportunities for civil design and construction players for urban development who leverage infrastructure projects.

“For managers of territorial and urban projects, 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers game changing innovation to manage territorial complexity, ease the challenges of multi- stakeholders collaboration, and optimize the sharing of data across disciplinary silos to enable territories to transform themselves and become more sustainable, resilient, and resource-full.“ Akio Moriwaki, Industry Marketing Director, Construction, Cities & Territories Industry, Dassault Systemes.

Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform brings together a wide range of territorial and infrastructure data with industry-leading analytical, modelng, simulation and lifecycle management capabilities. Coordinates and terrain information can be extracted to use in the model, or design information can be placed in a true map to provide all users an accurate site overview and visual context. Predicting the effect the structure will have on the surrounding area is particularly important in densely built urban zones.

This white paper is presenting industry trends in Construction, Cities & Territories covering infrastructure lifecycle management through virtual twin. Building Information Modelling (BIM) is currently taking over the traditional methods for infrastructure developments, operation and maintenance. Using BIM and virtual twin allow collection, analysis, and aggregation of data and enhances collaboration between different stakeholders, from design to operation and maintenance.
