Hexagon's manufacturing operations management solutions reduce operational risk, increase efficiency, decrease downtime, remove value leaks and meet internal and external compliance across industries. This allows operations teams to maintain a robust digital thread throughout the asset lifecycle.
The creation of a solid operations management data ecosystem by digitalising your operational processes, procedures and permits is a strong first step on the road to digital transformation. Critical asset, situational, qualitative and quantitative information should be captured, structured and stored digitally, and more importantly, organised and made available to support safety-critical operational processes.
Hexagon manufacturing operations management solutions can take your important shift, operator round, personnel, safety, maintenance and process information and make it visible and viable to users across the entire organisation. These on-premise or SaaS solutions are designed to foster greater communication, coordination, transparency and knowledge transfer between teams that leads to improved safety and productivity, reduced operational risk and a more empowered and engaged workforce.
Organisations must bridge the islands of crucial information in numerous formats on separate systems and digitally connect them with operational processes, procedures, permits and data to reduce operational risk, increase efficiency, decrease downtime, remove value leaks and meet internal and external compliance. Manufacturing operations management teams can mitigate operational and safety risks through improved situational awareness with a holistic solution that provides actionable information to mitigate abnormal situations and help to ensure safe, reliable and compliant operations.
Companies can further enhance information connection and interoperability by aggregating operational data and enabling a digital thread framework with a centralised asset lifecycle information management (ALIM) solution. This is strategically designed to capture, organise and link large volumes of information and unite manufacturing operations, maintenance, safety, engineering and real-time data.
On the journey to digital maturity, keeping your manufacturing operations running safely, smoothly and protected from cyber threats is vital to prevent unnecessary interruption to your enterprise. There are no shortages of reports and news outlets raising the alarm on cybersecurity awareness. In fact, the ARC Advisory Group (2019) reported that “many industrial operations remain at risk of costly, disruptive cyber incidents”. Its analysts recommended that “all industrial companies consider software like Cyber Integrity™ as a foundational element of a defence-in-depth cybersecurity strategy”.
This solution also provides numerous significant customer benefits such as enabling workflows and documentation for vulnerability remediations and compliance with ISA/IEC 62443, ISO 27001/2, NERC-CIP, NIST and the NIS Directive, as well as other regulations, accelerating recovery with backups of critical control system data and supporting in-depth forensic analysis.
Asset owners and operators can connect their 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 to enable a comprehensive and robust digital twin for manufacturing operations management.
The digital thread provides a means to navigate between the various digital twins used throughout the asset lifecycle to help organisations understand the “intent” behind their design, strategy and/or process. The digital thread positively impacts enterprise-wide safety culture, engineering and operations collaboration and efficiency, and ultimately, the bottom line of the balance sheet.
The digital thread also enables asset owners and operators to build and maintain an information management data ecosystem throughout the asset lifecycle, allowing for a continuous journey of operational excellence. By deploying a comprehensive digital thread, complex data can be analysed and transformed into actionable information. The significance of this ultimate digital platform is that it opens the door to the competitive advantages made possible by using predictive and prescriptive analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and automated decision-making across the value chain.
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
