How to Make Your Existing Asset ‘SMART’?

In today's challenging market conditions, investors continue to demand higher productivity and lower costs. As new projects across all industry sectors are postponed/cancelled, the lifespan of existing facilities must be extended in order to meet these objectives. 

Information in older facilities is typically held in multiple – often incompatible or outdated – formats and locations, or they may have been lost as older employees retire and take undocumented knowledge with them. This lack of good quality information reduces efficiency and profitability, and affects your ability to provide rapid and robust emergency response. 

Relevant questions include: How to extend asset life? How to maximize profitability of an asset whilst lowering costs? How can existing facilities perform better? Luckily, the latest developments in information capture and digitizing technology now offer a solution. By digitizing existing engineering information and using 3D scanning or surveying equipment to create a digital twin of the existing facility, owners can now create a ‘smart’ asset to support safe, compliant and profitable activities. 

We will be hosting a webinar Making Your Asset “Smart on June 6 11:00 a.m. (CEST) to discuss the challenges and possibilities of making your existing assets smart by capturing, digitizing, and managing engineering information. The webinar will discuss laser scanning, capture of maintenance, operations and inspection information, and the reuse of engineering data including 3D models to support your decision-making processes.

By attending this webinar, you will:

See how quickly your facility can become smart and how to get rapid access to plant documentation.
Learn how to enable better, more informed decision-making in all aspects of operation and maintenance.

We will also be hosting a Q&A session after the webinar, so you can prepare your questions and join us for the discussion.
