Procore is working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to use its technology to accelerate the creation of digital twins for buildings, factories, industrial equipment, and production lines.
According to Procore, project owners will be able to incorporate as-built information from Procore with real-time data sources using TwinMaker, extending the value of construction information into operations.
In a statement to the New York Stock Exchange, Procore said: “AWS IoT TwinMaker will make it faster and easier to create digital twins of real-world systems. Using AWS IoT TwinMaker, developers can get started quickly building digital twins of devices, equipment, and processes by connecting AWS IoT TwinMaker to data sources like equipment sensors, video feeds, and business applications.
“Built-in connectors for integration with sensors, 3D visualisation, and downstream data analytics are transforming the built environment.”
Procore’s CEO Tooey Courtemanche added: “Nearly 80% of the cost of a project happens during the operations phase of the construction lifecycle. Knowing how a design or procurement decision will impact a project is one of the most complicated challenges in construction.
“What AWS and Procore are able to offer together is a deeper understanding of how those decisions can help streamline operations, reduce costs and optimise performance by applying 3D models and digital twin technology. AWS technology powered through Procore’s platform frees the construction industry to do what it does best: build, maintain and power the places we live and work in.”
