Abstract: The idea of a Digital Twin [DT] has been gaining increasing attention in the field of urban management. Several case studies, pilot projects and proof-of-concepts are carried out to demonstrate the value of DTs which also generates ‘DT knowledge’ about how DTs are developed. However, there appears to be no Knowledge Management strategy to guide capturing and retrieval of DT knowledge. This paper proposes a Knowledge-based System for DT Design and knowledge Transfer that facilitates capturing, sharing and reuse of DT knowledge. This can help reproduce DT best practices and thus, support thriving of DT market at a large scale.
