Unlocking the Full Potential of Your Operations Why 3D data capture should become the keystone of your asset operations strategy When asked 'Do you think that laser scanning should form the keystone of a digital asset strategy?' 92% of EPC and Owner Operator delegates who expressed an opinion at the 2013 AVEVA World Summit in Boston agreed. In this article we explain why laser scanning is so potentially valuable, and how 3D data capture should become the keystone element of your asset operations strategy. AVEVA's belief, clearly now shared by many Owner Operators, is that for every physical asset there should exist a digital asset. Furthermore this 'digital plant' information model should be kept evergreen throughout the entire asset life cycle. Seamlessly integrated, information should flow from as-designed, to as-built, to as-operated. This information model concept forms the basis of AVEVA's Integrated Project Execution and Operations Integrity Management strategies. These enable Owner Operators to improve efficiency and reduce risk in both the project execution and asset performance aspects of their operations and, by controlling information, design and engineering resources, also enable EPCs and OOs to improve quality, cut costs and shorten project schedules. The digital plant can be used throughout the physical plant's life cycle, from the earliest stages of FEED, through design, construction and commissioning, and throughout the asset's working life. Because its integrity and value are maintained through the asset's entire lifec ycle, the digital plant not only supports efficient operations but also facilitates efficient upgrades and revamps.
