Asset Lifecycle Information Management Solutions
Centralise critical industrial information and eliminate value leaks throughout the asset lifecycle.
From concept and design through operations, maintenance and decommissioning. Hexagon's asset lifecycle information management and performance management solutions transform unorganised data into intelligent information that enables smarter design, construction and operation of industrial projects.
From concepts to operations

To keep an industrial project operating smoothly over its asset lifecycle requires efficient and intelligent plant engineering from the beginning. Hexagon's comprehensive asset design software has been developed for today’s 24/7 global engineering workshare environment.
All engineering disciplines are intelligent and fully connected—an engineering change in one area automatically triggers change in all associated objects, no matter where the change occurs. Hexagon's asset design software drives project optimisation, while the rule-driven environment prevents engineering errors that lead to shutdowns and lost production.
For the manufacturing and process industries, meeting higher production goals and stricter regulatory requirements begins with building a better plant. Hexagon's detail design solutions provide a connected design environment for plant construction that defines and manages the 3D plant model.
This intelligent, rule-based 3D environment enables faster, silo-free plant design and engineering, better collaboration and reduced time to market. Innovative plant modelling software from Hexagon provides consistent 2D/3D interoperability between process engineering and detailed engineering disciplines and true workflow-managed processes across the project enterprise.
With Hexagon's efficient and accurate asset control system for procurement, fabrication and construction, project designers and owners save valuable production time during plant construction. These solutions span the complete project management lifecycle—from materials specification and change management through procurement and tracking to inventories, forecast and material issuing.
Designed to drive efficiency, Hexagon's solutions for asset performance management can prevent costly material surpluses and shortages and reduce overall project risk.
Operations personnel often struggle to manage large volumes of unstructured information—such as data sheets, drawings and other documents—that are often duplicated in various paper files, folders and scattered databases throughout an organization.
To address these challenges, Hexagon’s asset performance management solutions are used across industries to help reduce operational risk, increase efficiency, decrease downtime, remove value leaks and meet internal and external compliance. Hexagon’s asset performance management technology also allows asset owners and operators to build and maintain a robust and comprehensive digital thread throughout the asset lifecycle. This is achieved by seamlessly connecting an organisation’s safety-critical operational processes, procedures and permits, alarm management methodology, maintenance work orders, real-time and historical process data, engineering schematics and technical documentation with 3D models, laser scans and cybersecurity safeguards.
Hexagon's asset performance management and maintenance solutions are used to track and extract the most value from assets while mitigating risks associated with operational downtime and unnecessary, unplanned costs. Optimising business processes and asset maintenance strategies ensure operational efficiency and asset reliability and help organisations to predict and prevent failures while improving failure management and cost control.
Maintenance solutions provide the foundation of digital innovation in asset-intensive industries, where digital realities, or digital operational twins, are increasingly leveraged to provide complete line-of-sight to ever-changing situations across the asset lifecycle. This includes the condition and performance of fixed assets—from capital and process equipment (machines, trucks, valves, turbines and pumps) to critical infrastructure (road, railway, pipeline and communications networks) to entire buildings and facilities.
We’re climbing the automation curve
Our transition to Intelligent automation is accelerating. Ultimately, our innovations will give rise to new technologies and applications - many of which we’ve yet to imagine. Today, every Hexagon solution is mapped and tagged according to its level of automation, so customers can clearly track our progress towards the freedom of autonomy.
All tasks completed by human labour; no data is leveraged across the operation.
Labour is primarily conducted by a human workforce. Some functions have been automated to simplify control.
Some tasks are automated for short periods of time, accompanied by occasional human intervention.
Human workforce is used for intervention as autonomous operations begin to increase productivity.
Autonomous systems complete required tasks within specific bounds, unleashing data and building smart digital realities.
A smart digital reality™ enables autonomous systems to complete all tasks without human intervention.
