Engineering Needs we Address

3D CAD Conversion

Business Challenge

Both Owners and EPC’s are often faced with the need to convert 3D models or to work with multiple 3D CAD solutions, which is inefficient. Historically such conversions have been costly.

Answer

Using automated techniques DIGATEX can provide cost effective conversion services between various 3D CAD systems enabling both EPC’s and OO’s to rationalise their use of 3D CAD systems and optimise their business processes, around a consistent set of standards and processes.

P&ID and other 2D Data Conversions and Enhancements

Business Challenge

P&ID’s, E&I and Mechanical lists and databases are critical data sources that need to be maintained across the lifecycle. Data centric intelligent P&ID’s are also a key component in any Digital Asset Strategy. Very often intelligent P&ID’s are not available once a plant is in operation.

Answer

DIGATEX can enhance dumb P&ID’s or legacy intelligent P&ID’s to fully intelligent in various target systems. This is done using expert systems to provide a very cost effective solution. Engineering integrity checking can be provided as an additional layer to ensure compliance with the latest standards. Similar methods are used for other 2D data sources.

2D & 3D Catalogue and Drawing Standards

Business Challenge

Maintaining specifications and catalogues for 2D and 3D systems & drawing standards is time consuming, repetitive and very often this information is not passed over to the owner.

Answer

DIGATEX can provide an ongoing service to maintain intelligent catalogues and specifications on a bureau basis, ensuring that these standards are available to the whole supply chain.

Drawing Classification & Tag Linking

Business Challenge

A key task in any Digital Asset strategy is to be able to cross index between tags and documents and to ensure correct classification of legacy documents.

Answer

Using expert systems DIGATEX can provide a turnkey service to process dumb drawings, classifying them correctly and ensuring tag to document validation and cross indexing.

Data Cleansing and Validation of Master Data

Business Challenge

For regulatory, safety and operational excellence it is vital to have a consolidated set of Master Data for the asset.

Answer

Using templates and rules DIGATEX can efficiently build master data sets and highlight inconsistencies between other critical data sources.

Class Library Management

Business Challenge

A Class Library is an essential template to ensure correct, consistent master data and to enable that data to be effectively used in operations, as well as providing the basis for data handover.

Answer

DIGATEX creates and maintains Class Libraries for its customers based on industry standards. Content can be enhanced as projects are executed.

3D As-Building using Laser Scanning and Modelling

Business Challenge

Laser scanning can be used to provide an accurate 3D representation of an asset which can be used for various purposes. Increasingly the laser scans are incorporated in the Digital Asset and used as 3D navigation and to aid decision making.

Answer

DIGATEX provides complete management of 3D as-built data capture and associated modelling. The work is optimized to suit the specific business requirements of the customer, whether this is simply scan consolidation and management or fully intelligent 3D models. This can be done on a project basis or as part of an ongoing managed solution.
