Digitisation, Digitalisation & As-Built Plant Data
Digital Transformation is probably the most widely discussed but least understood business imperative that is currently underway worldwide. The companies that are successfully making this transition are doing so in a staged or phased fashion. Think of it as a journey, think big, but start small, and apply the digitalization initiatives progressively through incremental small achievable steps that bring immediate benefits while continuing to move towards more ambitious targets.
Flex Process has extensive experience with assisting our clients on their digital transformation journey using this approach. This starts at the basic level where we have helped with capturing and digitalizing basic plant information, through reverse engineering where we create or recreate basic plant information such as process flow diagrams, data sheets, and P&IDs etc. and eventually to advanced 3D models and simulations.
Often this starts at a small scale where we tackle a single plant problem or project on one part of the process, solving the problem, and reverse engineering the associated process operating and design details as we go along. Then we tackle other problems, and after a few years we have reverse engineered and developed 3D and simulation models of much of the Clients’ plant. Eventually it makes sense to join the models together to end up with a full 3D model and process simulation of the entire plant or facility.
Talk to us about how our experienced engineers can partner with you to quickly understand your processes and can work with you to resolve your pain points and develop your digitalisation plans in a staged, cost effective manner, often with immediate payback, and always in line with your overall strategy and goals for your facility.
