Intergraph® Leverages Leica Geosystems' TruView to Connect Engineering Design Basis with Reality

Users of Intergraph's cPLM product SmartPlant® Foundation and SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators can now benefit from intuitive, photorealistic access to asset documentation and data on PCs or mobile devices

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph®, the world's leading enterprise engineering software provider, today introduced a Leica TruView Integrator for SmartPlant® Enterprise as well as offline mobile device support for SmartPlant® Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO).

The new SmartPlant Enterprise/SPO TruView Integrator enables end-users to use photorealistic and intelligent TruView laser scans as an intuitive portal to access all plant information and documentation in SmartPlant Foundation. The new SPO Mobile Core and SPO Mobile Operating Plant solutions go one step further and leverage these intuitive, photorealistic access options to support day-to-day plant operations and activities such as maintenance, inspection and equipment isolation in online and offline mode.   

Ludwig Englmaier, head of the Engineering Department for AlzChem AG, said, "We have been using Intergraph tools for many years to manage the virtual plant asset for our plants at AlzChem. We recently selected SPO and will be rolling it into production over the coming weeks. We are excited about SPO Mobile Apps with TruView Integrator, and will be seeking to implement them as soon as possible.

"We believe these will help us bring the immense value of the virtual plant asset directly to workers on the plant floor. Today, plant workers performing inspection and maintenance activities spend too much time locating the items they need in the plant. SPO Mobile with photorealistic TruView visualization will help our plant workers carry out their work safer, quicker and better than ever."

Bill Van Butzelaar, Woodside Operations, Business Improvement Manager, Woodside Energy Limited, said, "The use of a photorealistic representation of a plant as an intuitive user interface into asset information will drive significant improvements in efficiency. With laser scanning and photo capture, the time to capture 'as-exists' physical asset information is greatly reduced. When combined with the rapid capture of other plant information using Intergraph's SmartPlant Fusion, the time required to find and access specific plant data or documentation on a daily basis is dramatically reduced.

"Additionally, when you consider the reduction in health and safety risks as a result of reduced on-site time, it becomes very obvious that photorealistic plant information browsers will play a very important role in the industry in the future."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process Power & Marine president, said, "It is hard to imagine a more intuitive way to access plant engineering information than by means of a photorealistic plant browser. Our new Leica TruView Integrator will allow everybody at any plant to derive maximum value from the technical asset management information in SmartPlant Foundation.

"With the SPO Mobile solutions we are now bringing the technical asset information where it's needed on a daily basis for the different operations and maintenance activities. We are bringing it to the plant floor and remote operations locations where there is no network connectivity. These are game-changing and unmatched solutions that will significantly improve the way engineering assets are maintained."

Leading plant owners choose SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators to enable them to rapidly implement Intergraph's preconfigured business processes to support both CAPEX and OPEX phases of the plant life cycle. SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators is specifically designed for asset owners to enhance plant safety, reliability, and interoperability, while ensuring information integrity across the owner operator system landscape.

SmartPlant Foundation is the world's No.1 standards-based Capital Project Life Cycle Management (cPLM) solution with proven performance in the process, power, and marine industries. It has been selected as the information management and integration system of choice by hundreds of companies, engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) organizations, and owner operators worldwide in projects both large and small.

Free Leica TruView software allows anyone to panoramically view and quickly measure rich, laser scan point cloud data and corresponding digital images without having to be an expert in 3D, CAD or point cloud software. Users can extract real 3D coordinates and measure distances, with results appearing immediately right on the point cloud image. TruView users can also generate markups, view proposed designs in their real world context, link to asset information, and readily share TruViews with peers, service providers or clients for more effective project communications and collaboration, even over the Internet. Qualified developers can also integrate Leica TruView into third-party software as an intuitive use interface for quickly accessing "as-is" scene information.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
Cybersecurity is a critical component of software development in many industries including medical devices. However, code is not always written to be robust or secure from the unknown or the unexpected. This gap can make medical devices susceptible to cybersecurity attacks ranging from compromised personal health information to life-sustaining treatment.

Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software in the hope of capturing value in IoT. Although IoT is relatively new in the market, it has already gone through many promotional terms such as IoE, IoX, SDX, Edge/Fog, Mist Compute, etc. Ultimately, irrespective of the name, it is about deriving value from independent software assets participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution.
