To create planning and operational digital twins of next generation data centres operations that allow integrated design, modelling, simulation, operational optimisation, predictive machine-learning-assisted maintenance, risk quantification and management,cost reduction,productivity,what-if scenario planning,etc.
Data centres are critical facilities for any smart estates. Despite available technologies, current data centres in Singapore are largely designed and constructed with”paper-based” floor plans. There are a number of issues with this traditional approach. Often during the design process, various safety, risk, environmental and operational (including optimization of utilities usage) considerations may not be factored, resulting in changes required after the data centres are constructed or even during construction which needed alternative solutions that either increase cost or have compromises.
