Digital Twin approach for Train planning, Prevention is better than cure

“Digital Twin” technology has started to be applied in industries that are facing high complexity and digitalization throughout its value chain. The initial application was in the manufacturing industry, however it has gradually expanded to other industries such as Energy, Logistics and other Social Infrastructure sectors.

Toshiba is pioneering the digital twin concept and have applied it in a variety of industries around the world. Since 2019, we have partnered with a UK train operator to apply our Digital Twin solution to enhance their train timetabling operation.

In this session, we will outline our Digital Twin solution and address the application of it within the UK train operator market.
