Probabilistic Digital Twins

Extending digital twins for risk management

Andreas Hafver (lead author), Simen Eldevik and Frank Børre Pedersen

Digital twinning is a technology trend that is sweeping across industries. DNV has long been a promoter of digital twins in the industries we serve, and is embracing the opportunities offered by digital twins to enhance, renew and extend our services.

Traditionally, risk-assessments have been conducted manually and off-line, and delivered as static reports. In this position paper, we present the concept of Probabilistic Digital Twins, which connect digital twins to probabilistic risk models, bringing risk assessments on-line to support risk informed decisions in operation.
