What do I need to do?
In theory, all you need to do is upload your 3d model to Moicon through our encrypted user portal and sit back while our services translate and upload your Digital Twin to the encrypted server, hosted in a certified AWS-environment.
However – before that, we believe the reason you're researching to apply a Digital Twin to a certain use case is to optimize, simulate or monitor certain or several processes. The user's real-world insight is vital to overcome the users real-world challenges, whereas Moicon™ is the virtual tool helping the organization organize their data so that they can plan, operate, service & maintain their buildings to achieve goals and drive KPI's up.
