Delivering innovation The importance of context within design and engineering, introduced by Danny Forster, was carried forward in the final AVEVA keynote session entitled 'Delivering Innovation.' Presented by Dave Wheeldon, AVEVA's CTO, and his Solution Strategy team, this session introduced four exciting new solutions that work together to provide individuals with the context-based information they need to make the right decisions. Using a theme of 'Data – Information – Knowledge – Action', delegates were given a unique insight into AVEVA's latest technology. Data Representing the 'Data' element of the theme was the latest laser scanning technology that builds on AVEVA's BubbleView™ functionality to create an even more powerful HyperBubble™ capability. This connects individual BubbleViews to enable users to dynamically move through a laser scanned 3D rendering of an entire physical site. In addition, laser scanned content can now be removed or 'demolished' and replaced either with intelligent model components or with local re-scan data, following modifications, for example. Information This led neatly to 'Information', which was illustrated by the latest release of AVEVA Everything3D™ (AVEVA E3D™). An enhanced user interface and seamless integration with the latest laser scanning tools means that users can easily include laser scanned data directly within their 3D model, giving context to the combined greenfield and brownfield environments. This is totally integrated within the design and engineering process, even enabling production drawings to include a mix of laser data and modelled information. The new laser and AVEVA E3D technologies would be powerful enough on their own, but the fact that they work together so harmoniously sets new standards for delivering comprehensive and contextual information that improves project quality and performance. Knowledge This interesting session continued with a review of AVEVA's unique hybrid Cloud strategy that supports incremental implementation of Cloud technology. Particularly in our industries, organisations have been hesitant to fully embrace Cloud technology for a wide variety of reasons. The AVEVA approach enables companies to overcome their concerns by supporting a combination of on-premises and Cloud deployments. You can roll out a Cloud environment to meet the pace of your own business, making the 'Knowledge' provided by AVEVA's software available when and where you need it. Delegates were also invited to participate in the recently launched AVEVA Experience™, a free Cloud-based training resource for AVEVA E3D. Those who register for AVEVA Experience will be given hands-on access to AVEVA E3D running in the Cloud. You can see for yourself the advanced capabilities of AVEVA E3D while evaluating the performance and flexibility of a Cloud environment. Action But the highlight of this session was surely the formal launch of AVEVA Engage™, AVEVA's powerful and intuitive decision support application. Using touch-screen technology, AVEVA Engage puts your 3D model and all of its associated Digital Asset content literally at your fingertips. Models can be explored and interrogated in real time, instantly presenting contextualised business-critical information. This ground-breaking new application improves the quality of decision making, enabling both project managers and asset operators to take rapid and accurate 'Action.' From Data to Action, AVEVA clearly demonstrated to the Summit audience its commitment to delivering innovation across the asset life cycle. More in-depth information on the subjects presented in the opening keynote was provided in later sessions, together with other AVEVA presentations on CAPEX optimisation, brownfield engineering, structural steel detailing, Enterprise Resource Management, and constructing a Digital Asset for operations and brownfield modifications.
