Digital twin implementation enhances operational efficiency and reduces costs

The rising demand for water, higher risk of bad debt, and price of raw materials and labor have pushed water companies to ensure operational efficiency while reducing manual effort and costs. COVID-19 has further exacerbated the challenges faced by these firms. To this end, water utilities can achieve such efficiency by implementing digital twin in their water treatment plants, which has numerous benefits:

- Water quality and volume monitoring based on regulatory compliance/customer side demand

- Maintenance and improvement of asset lifecycle within the plants

- Decreased dependency on individuals

- Business scenarios testing before implementing them

- Inventory management optimization at plant sites
