A common term these days is “data is the new oil”. Advances in technology and data transfer are opening up opportunities that until recently were not possible.

Whether you work in consulting or Operations, whatever the scope, whatever the facility, getting access to data, ensuring it is accurate and being able to update it efficiently and effectively is always critical to safe and successful project delivery.

Our industry is continually improving data management, but the data flow can still often be a very manual process...transferring from system to system, from the Operator to the Engineering Contractor and then back to the Operator, then to the Implementation Contractor, back to Operations for Commissioning and Handover. 

Different Operators do it differently, but in all cases there will be situations that information silos will form, the information gets trapped in them, and it gets much more difficult for the Operations team to efficiently run their facilities. This represents a serious Health and Safety, Production and Integrity risk, not to mention the time wasted on site looking for the right data.

At Momentum Engineering, working with our partners iSOL8, Mineral Blue and Sentient Computing, we believe we have developed a process to help unlock these silos...

It starts with a few questions...

  • How would you like to use information currently locked in engineering drawings to drive operations in the field?

  • How would you like to extend your drawings to produce fully operational isolation plans?

  • How would you like to create visual animations of tasks in the virtual world, to use for training your teams before they head out to site?

  • How would you like to see in real time the work that is happening on the facility at any given time and be able to measure against progress inside a 4D model?

Our isoPlan™ system does just that.

isoPlan™ is adaptable and nimble, it stitches your existing systems together.

We are really excited about the development of this new product and service through a truly collaborative effort between four SME companies. We think it is something that can open up some real improvements in data availability and handling, and real time control of work being carried out on your facilities. We have tested it in the office are now looking for a project to test it on in the field!
