Engineering Asset Visualisation Digital Realities
Your projects and O&M data forged into a smart digital asset for superior business performance.
Hexagon enables our customers to create digital realities where real world assets are captured and organised as a digital representation and where knowledge is easily available to shape business decisions across projects and operations.
Data over the asset lifecycle
For operations & maintenance
Digital realities for engineering assets
The volume of information created today is greater than at any other time in human history—and only a mere percentage of that data is ever used.
For large, industrial assets, siloed data across many disciplines creates inefficiencies and encourages poor performance. To counter this, industry leaders are transforming their businesses to create digital twins connected by a digital thread
Digital twins and their models are synced with their physical twin throughout service life to enable previously unattainable critical insights to help you understand the “what” and the “why”.
The digital thread
The digital thread provides a means to navigate between the various digital twins used throughout the asset lifecycle to help you understand the “intent” behind the design, strategy and/or process.
At Hexagon, we help our customers with the tools to create digital twins and provide the digital backbone that weaves all of the data sources into the connected digital thread.
Engineering and construction of industrial assets involves an incredible coordination effort of teams, resources and tools. As the technology advances, so do the possibilities—a single pane of glass view of every project, and all the data that makes up that project—from 2D and 3D designs, cost and schedule information, materials management and all the elements to be packaged and delivered as a digital twin to the asset owner at handover.
Hexagon asset visualisation helps create and maximise the value of the digital thread throughout the asset lifecycle. Consider these project benefits:
- Reduced process design time
- Lower CapEx for project design and execution
- Improved design review efficiency
- Decreased design errors
- Reduced project mobilisation costs
- Declining project handover efforts
Today, asset owners have a huge amount of data available—performance and telemetry—but is it being utilised to its fullest?
Consider a drive towards predictive maintenance over fixed maintenance schedules. Artificial intelligence can automatically convert a laser scan of an existing facility into a fully-tagged engineering document.
Hexagon customers can maximise the value of their digital tread throughout the asset lifecycle in many ways including:
- Reduced maintenance costs
- Enhanced situational awareness
- Improved regulatory compliance
- Better workforce productivity
- More production capacity
- Decreased inventory carrying costs
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.
Human performs all tasks, no data being used
Human is in charge of performing tasks but certain functions are automated to simplify control
Some tasks are automated so that operation can be autonomous for short periods (or within specific circumstances)
Autonomous operation is possible within certain bounds, but human intervention may be necessary at short notice
Designed to complete required tasks autonomously, but may require human intervention if circumstances change beyond specific bounds
Control tasks automated under all conditions, but human may request to take over; can complete all expected tasks without human intervention
