About the product
Industry 4.0 and the Digital Twin are fast becoming integral to asset-intensive companies around the globe. With more and more CEO’s placing digital at the heart of their corporate strategy, and technology improving at such a fast rate, this will increase exponentially over the next few years.
With the rapid advances in Visualisation and BIM, many companies have already created their Digital Twin. A virtual replication of their physical organisation. The benefits from this have proven to be massive and the advantages of having even the most basic of digital twins in place puts the companies with the foresight to create one in a great position for the rapid increases in technology.
Virtual Reality is a new gateway into this digital world. A way in which your staff can immerse themselves in the digital twin with no limitations. Real-time data means the world in which they will be viewing and interacting with is identical to the physical world, with the added benefits of having all information they require at their fingertips, no safety risks, and minimal use of their time meaning you are able to utilise their expertise more within your organisation.
The Digital Twin harnesses visual information from BIM models and GIS, as well as other rich data stored within your Enterprise Asset Management System, such as work, operations and maintenance information. By utilising Virtual Reality in the Digital Twin it will enable safety briefings, scoping, planning, exercises and training to all be completed virtually.
With the time and risks which are associated with visiting sites reduced, you will be able to provide your staff with a technology capable of giving them the tools to do their job to the best of their abilities, make better decisions, working safer & more efficiently, as well as not limiting their working patterns to a few engineering hours.
The critical piece to all this is keeping the Digital Twin up to date in real-time by linking and relating it to all your Asset information sources, Work and Safety information. Virtual Reality also opens the door to consuming other digital information sources such as laser scans and photogrammetry captured from drones or recording vehicles.
