HUVR Delivers on Promise of Digital Twin with 3DC
Adds context to inspection data increasing operational efficiency
Austin, TX – July 21 – Today HUVRdata, the next generation inspection data management software (IDMS) platform, announced the commercial availability of its three-dimensional contextualization (3DC) HUVR Partner Solution, which gives new levels of context to asset inspection data. Whether they are across the site or on the other side of the world, integrity engineers and planners no longer need to physically see an asset to make critical operational decisions.
Modern industrial inspections create a massive depth and breath of data for engineers and planners. The data comes in the form of images, video, digital checklists and myriad NDT measurements–generated by humans, robots and a wide variety of sensors–all of which has to be considered in context. When making decisions in the past, engineers typically had to be on-site to consider the full scope of any defect remediation or maintenance intervention they might recommend. Otherwise, follow-up questions or requests for clarity almost always involved sending the inspection team back to the asset to get answers. With HUVR’s 3DC Partner Solution, these repeat trips become largely unnecessary.
Incorporating integrations with leading digital twin OEMs like VEERUM and ZynQ 360, HUVR’s 3DC solution delivers spatial and geographical context as well as condition status for industrial assets. The inspection data is displayed on a digital model of the asset so not only the anomaly is considered in decisions; the anomaly’s location in relation to other parts of the asset (or other assets) is also factored in. The visual context provided makes it easier to understand the repercussions of a remediation, improving the operational efficiency of the decider.
“Data without context is meaningless,” said Chris Haines, vice president of strategy, HUVRdata. “While modern inspection techniques provide a degree of context, understanding exactly how the resulting findings relate to an asset offers engineers and planners the chance to speed up their decisions. With this more visual way of working, turnarounds can be completed faster, for instance, and engineers working remotely have the benefit of seeing the entire picture.”
“Traditional inspection methods are time-consuming, resource-intensive and prone to errors,” said Trevor MacMaster, chief client officer, VEERUM. “By integrating spatial and geographical context, along with condition status, our users can make informed decisions from anywhere in the world. Together with HUVR, this reality-first solution is changing the game for remote inspections and turnarounds.”
“We are excited to continue our partnership with HUVR, integrating their innovative features into the ZynQ platform, enhancing the contextualization of asset data, and facilitating an agile digital journey for business,” said Rob Smith, head of Americas, ZynQ 360.
HUVR’s 3DC solution is built upon integrations with OEMs like VEERUM and ZynQ 360, and customers of both HUVR and either of these companies can expect a seamless user experience today. Going forward, because HUVR is agnostic to data collection and analysis tools, and integrates with any existing systems of record, customers using other digital twin platforms will be able to take advantage of 3DC.
