Digital Twin

Your
Digital Twin

A digital twin is a digital representation of a physical plant and its processes or systems, which allows us to better understand and model its performance. Digital twins are continuously updated with data from multiple sources, which is what makes them different from static, 3D or BIM Models.

Plant Owner Operators are continuously confronted with the loss of technical information and proficiency of skills. In the current environment, where people are no longer required to be on site or in office, information must be available at the right time, visual to make understanding data easier and to be consumed by users from anywhere.

The cloud based PlantSight environment provides a unified view into federated data from multiple sources. This unified view combines engineering, design, build, construction, operations, maintenance data, 3D representations including models and scanned data as well as quality-related data.

The system helps clarify relationships and provide context for the data, thus making it easier for users to interpret and understand.

The service is further designed to provide insight into how data changes over time, help enforce data protection policies, and support audits.

The auditability and repeatability of processes are imperative now and into the future to ensure sustainable business performance and to minimise risk to the business.

Developing a Digital Twin is a journey, not a destination, we start by taking the first steps.

Data Capture

3D Models

The start point of any Digital Twin is a reliable and representative 3D Model, either the “As-Built” construction model, or an “As-Is” 3D model built from laser scanned data or photogrammetry.

The 3D Model should at least contain the components that you wish to track or manage.

Documentation

Data Capture

Documentation is captured in a managed environment, verified and validated to be accurate and then shared with users for consumption.

The Digital Twin makes this process visual by linking the documents to the components in the 3D Model at point of use.

Once the 3D environment has been created and populated with verified and validated content; the next is to connect to external sources for additional data. The possibilities are endless and connectors can include the following:
– SAP
– Maximo
– Oracle EAM
– Siemens XHQ
– OsiPi or ODC compliant historian system

Trends can be recorded and preventative and predictive maintenance can be done based on links to the above systems.

See change history graphically or in a data format. Determine the impact of any change to ongoing operations. Access associated documents, drawings, photos, as well as the reliability program, including the failure modes (hypothetical events), actual events driving alarms, and the work orders being executed in your Enterprise Asset Management System.
