Digital Twin

Today's era of change in manufacturing is faster than ever seen in history. In the past few decades, we have evolved from simple electronic control to an environment of unlimited data and industrial transformation. Achieving the right transformation in today's competitive world is critical and a key factor is the ability to manage and use data to achieve the company's strategic goals. Often, a digital twin is at the center of the metamorphosis.
While we see many definitions of “Digital Twin”, LNS Research maintains simplicity: A Digital Twin is a virtual executable model of a physical thing or system. This "physical thing" can be anything from a manufactured object, such as a car, aircraft or pharmaceutical medicine, or the manufacturing system and process itself, including machinery and equipment. Each product has definable characteristics in the real world, and the Digital Twin combines and portrays the attributes virtually. In a perfect world, Digital Twin would capture all the attributes of a product or system and its processes. In reality, technology is still evolving to fulfill that vision and we are not there yet. This does not mean that manufacturers cannot proceed and derive enormous value from a simpler virtual model.

Simulations and Analysis

One of the great benefits of digitalization is the possibility of carrying out simulations and analysis in the virtual environment, as demonstrated in our products.

Deliverable:
  • - Tank deformation simulation
  • - Assembly and disassembly simulation
  • - Plumb and flatness analysis
  • - Volume calculation
  • - Interference analysis

As-Built Engineering Documentation

The As-Built of the technical documentation is performed using both the laser scanning technology as a basis for field survey and the 3D modeling solution with database.

Deliverable:
  • - Flowcharts As-Built
  • - Piping Isometric As-Built
  • - Layouts As-Built

Field Survey

Laser Scanning, Aerophotogrammetry, Georeferenced Topography services.

Deliverable:
  • - Point cloud
  • - Orthophoto
  • - Contour lines
  • - Planialtimetric cadastral

Reverse Engineering

Reverse Engineering projects require a high level of precision, as they involve scanning existing parts and / or assemblies, creating detailed CAD / CAE models.
The need often arises when a company wants to make improvements to a project, 3D printing, or has insufficient design documentation.
Enjoy Virtual Plant's experience in Reverse Engineering to generate models from existing objects (As-Built), modernize manufacturing processes or design a new part to fit both a new product and existing equipment.

Deliverable:
  • - Mesh
  • - Dimensional drawings
  • - 3D model for manufacturing
  • - 3D model for 3D printing

Scan to BIM

The BIM project begins with the scope specification, aiming to provide our customers with a deep understanding of the process, methodology and objectives; set the LOD (Level of Detail) from 1 to 4; and ensure that project requirements are met, including only what is necessary.
After defining the scope, the project manager will collect the necessary information, provide access, assess the requirements and allocate the appropriate staff and equipment. It uses topography equipment for control points along with laser scanning to define the coordinate system for generating the point cloud according to project definitions.
After completing the field survey, the data is processed. The point cloud is converted into a format compatible with the desired BIM modeling software package.
BIM modeling is performed to meet the requirements and, also, for quality assurance.

Deliverable:
  • - BIM model
  • - Plants and cuts
  • - Laser scanning

Consulting

Diagnosis
Training

Diagnosis

The first phase of a consultancy
process is the diagnosis, in which company information is being collected and the internal and external environments will be analyzed, such as, for example, existing technologies, workflows, responsibilities etc., with the objective of developing and improving processes and tools to achieve high levels of asset management.

Deliverable:
  • - Diagnosis report

Training

Virtual Plant provides training on all the solutions it offers as services. Training can be carried out online, at our office or at the clients' premises

Deliverable:
  • - Training
