Aveva Enhances Digital Twin Creation


The Aveva digital twin solution uses advanced data and AI-based programmes to promote innovation and agility

Aveva has announced that its engineering information management solutions, the core of its digital twin, can now accelerate capital projects and operations. With the integration of Aveva Point Cloud Manager and Aveva Asset Information Management in the cloud, organisations can now visualise asset information with real-time data faster and easier. Aveva customers can now experience a complete digital twin within just 60 days, even without existing models, thanks to deeper contextualisation and enhanced visualisation.

Aveva’s engineering information management solutions are now combined with the Assai integrated document management system and powered by data captured using NavVis’ wearable mobile mapping systems. As a result of the NavVis partnership, laser scans can be delivered much faster than with existing stationary scanners, while Assai’s Document Control and Management Solutions expand Aveva’s already data-rich digital twin capabilities with even more robust document information.

“Digital twins have never been more important. They will play a central role in uncovering opportunities to unlock ingenuity and achieve the efficiency and sustainability gains needed to enable net-zero carbon emissions. Yet, a digital twin is only as good as the data that composes it. With the new integrations and our cloud-native solutions, customers looking to develop and enhance their digital twin can now design, construct and operate sustainable facilities by using data-driven insights to optimise processes and decisions across the value chain. The result is a scalable solution that allows companies to leverage existing technology investments and accelerate insight through universal, contextualised access to all engineering, operations and maintenance information in the cloud, using any form of visualisation (3D models and/or laser scans) and built-in analytics,” said Amish Sabharwal, Executive Vice President, Engineering Business Unit, Aveva.

According to Aveva, the newly expanded engineering information management solution portfolio is well suited for sectors such as oil and gas, energy, power and utilities, chemicals, marine and mining. Designed as a lever to deliver sustainability and the circular economy at speed and scale, the Aveva digital twin solution uses advanced data- and AI-based programmes to promote innovation and agility through monitoring, diagnostics and prognostics to optimise asset performance and utilisation. Creating the foundation of the digital twin has never been easier or more robust with the latest developments to Aveva’s cloud-based engineering information management solutions and partnerships.
