Visualize models and simulate operation within a virtual reality environment, but do not stop there...
Stream real data and observe behavior, predict condition and likelihood of failure modes.
Asset level digital twins
An asset level digital twin parses and processes real time data streamed directly from the real world so as to create a dynamic, virtual, representation of the equipment being simulated. By creating a digital twin, it is possible to gather insight about potential ways to improve operations, increase efficiency or determine potential breakdown points before events happen. Lessons can be learnt from the digital twin which can be later applied to the real life installation, reducing process-related incidents and avoiding unplanned downtime, mitigating risk and associated costs, in consequence.We introduce the digital twin paradigm in the following stages:
- Design: Simulation and visualization during the design phase can be used to verify and inspect the overall 3D design and make sure all parts fit together. The design review process can be undertaken remotely together with the client and/or end user to ensure that the design is deemed to be fit for purpose, in a virtual reality environment.
- System integration: 3D visualizations on a system level can verify constraints such as spatial footprint and physical connections. We can integrate the 3D model in a virtual reality environment together with a set of cloud scan data taken from the real life installation, allowing for the aforementioned verifications. Integration effort onsite and the associated downtime for the customer is reduced, as feasibility of installation can be verified beforehand at the virtual environment.
- Diagnostics: Observation of the digital twin, for example in a 3D visualization, can support troubleshooting. Augmented reality devices can provide field technicians with an overlay over the real equipment enabling the visualization of key operational parameters. Simulations can add non-observable data, such as key performance data of non-accessible parts.
- Prediction: Past and present operational and sensor data in combination with predictive algorithms provide insights into the condition of equipment and the likelihood of different failure modes. This helps plan rational maintenance and reduce unplanned downtime.

Data analysis and forecasting
We are facing a new industrial revolution, where machines and sensors can connect to your IT infrastructure to provide more profound insight into your business and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).
With the advent of this new paradigm, systems and monitoring applications are producing enormous amounts of actionable data allowing for cost optimization, prediction of future events, behavior classification, quality control, and a number of other functionalities.
The connection of sensors from remote locations to your local or remote IT infrastructure can be undertaken in a seamless manner through a low cost, energy efficient, and secure Internet of Things (IoT) network. Business intelligence overviews can be generated, alerts programmed and additional functionality plugged in and actioned based upon the received and analyzed data. Moreover, Machine learning (ML) models can be generated allowing for prediction on most valuable operational parameters.

Supply chain traceability
Supply chain traceability is the process of tracking the provenance and journey of products from the start of the supply chain to delivery to the customer or end user.There are many reasons to pursue traceability: to find supply chain efficiencies or meet regulatory requirements, to connect with and understand the different stages in the supply chain, and of course, to inform consumers about the provenance and journey of products. It is a profound paradigm shift. And the technology is already available to trace each raw material that goes into a product and follow the product through its life journey. In fact, digital traceability enables companies to meet and balance a broader set of business objectives, including efficiency, resilience, responsiveness, and sustainability. It allows companies to redefine the boundary of operational excellence and set aspirational new goals. Please contact us to know more.
The challenges and pain points we specifically address
– Inefficient communication which may hinder or slow project development.
To mitigate this potential issue we offer local presence at your premises during the kick-off and early project stages, ensuring that the basic design requirements and preferences are well understood and accounted for.
We also offer a wide range of communication channels to ensure constant presence and availability so as to remain in close contact with your team, as well as access to secure data repositories to push project updates on a regular basis.
– Aggressive project timelines, scope variations and budget constraints.
We are acutely aware of the importance of upholding the contractual commitments, and the impact any deviations may have on your overall project scope. We offer weekly project updates detailing progress and, where appropriate, highlighting any deviations which have been detected, their causes, and our suggestions to mitigate their consequences. If we might fail to appropriately detect any measurable deviation, or act upon any detected deviations, we will voluntarily undertake to meet the obligations laid out in our professional guarantee as described below, in addition to whatever contractual terms might kick in.
– Overcoming a wide range of hurdles, pronto.
Whether a drawing needs to be promptly amended to accommodate an urgent request during plan approval, or a parcel is stuck in customs half way across the world due to incorrect or missing paperwork, or a new batch of PTFE coated bolting material is needed urgently at the installation site, we are here to help, seven days a week.
– Embracing new technology.
We constantly review and evaluate new software tools and technologies available in the market so as to be able to provide more complex scopes, be more flexible, and stay relevant.
As an example, we have recently deployed a set of tools enabling us to offer a virtual reality environment for design review and remote collaboration with clients and stakeholders, also acting as foundation for digital twin prototyping.
We can also deliver fully tested and configured environments for finite element modelling and analysis, based upon recognized open source packages, including benchmarks.
De-risking, performance measuring, and our professional guarantee
Our engineering deliverables and overall performance are covered by a comprehensive insurance policy that offers economic safeguard against a wide range of risks and uncertainties. Specific arrangements can be made on a project basis to extend the coverage, and policies are available upon request.
We guarantee that our practicing engineers will address your consultation to your satisfaction. They will also promptly return your emails, phone calls, or conference calls, within the same business hour, and fully addressing your concern or query. Where the query might require further action or consultation, or justifiable additional effort, clear estimates will be provided, and acted upon.
If we do not live up to any of these promises, or if you might feel that our performance has fallen short, we insist that you tell us, and we will make it right by scrambling to address any shortcomings, and crediting your account double the billable amount of the original consultation.
