Rapid Digital Twin and Ontology Builder for Buildings

Schneider Electric (SE) is developing their EcoStruxure Building Operations (EBO) system as a next generation Building Management System (BMS) that will combine data collected from the building into a Smart Digital Model (“Digital Twin”) that will be able to answer building users’ questions. This project will develop the tools necessary to develop such a Digital Twin, including defining its capabilities, identifying the information required to achieve the required functionality (including data formats and organizational structure), and developing a working prototype for a reference building. To maximize the benefit to SE, who would like to deploy this across a broad range of buildings, this approach must be replicable, scalable, and appropriately documented.
