Digital twin is often referred to as a realistic digital replica of any asset. Depending on the level and details of the digital twin, it comprises real-time data and analytics that would be utilized to identify any potential issues in building systems and components. Considering the increasing attention and applications of digital twins in the architecture, engineering, construction, and operations (AECO) industry, this project aims to identify the utilization of digital twins in facility management and building operations/maintenance. The project focuses on current literature to reveal the use, challenges, barriers, and benefits of the digital twin in facilities management with other technologies.
