Digital Twins for Water & Wastewater

Digital Twins for Water & Wastewater

October 18-19, 2022 | Online :: Central Time

The Digital Twins for Water & Wastewater course addresses the concepts, applications, value, and vendors of digital twin solutions for water & wastewater systems both “inside and outside the fence” of the treatment plant.  The course covers collections, distributions, and treatment systems digital twins. Operations, engineering, and management staff from utilities considering implementing digital solutions in water & wastewater, or that are already on a digital twin journey in water & wastewater should attend this course. Attendees are assumed to be generally familiar with water & wastewater distributions/collections and/or treatment, but no special knowledge of digital twin solutions is required. Attendees will learn the main concepts of digital twin applications, real world considerations and applications for digital twin initiatives, and the value of such solutions. The overall timeline and key decision points in a typical digital twin procurement will be described. The offerings of the main vendors in these markets will be summarized and compared. Attendees will also gain an overview of good practice in adopting, managing, and accelerating digital twin initiatives.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this course, attendees will:

  • Identify the main applications of digital twins across the water & wastewater industries
  • Discuss the benefits and limitations of digital twins compared to traditional planning, engineering, and operations practices
  • Define the terminology for a digital twin, with in-depth knowledge of the structure and function of specific digital twin applications in water & wastewater systems
  • Assess implementations of digital twin systems “in the real world”
  • Discuss typical digital twin procurement projects and understand the major decision points, including price and economic factors
  • Characterize key components of a successful digital twin implementation
