“The appeal of digital twin technology is obvious. The challenge is in developing the technology and best practices to accelerate adoption and spur innovation,” said Bry Dillon, Vice President of Cloud, Channels and Community at OSIsoft. “We're very excited to work with Hexagon PPM to help establish a foundation for our mutual customers to start to integrate digital twin concepts into their operations.”
“The SDx Connector for OSIsoft is the latest step in our strategy to make it easier for organizations to both create digital twins as well as use them across their enterprises. Our collaboration with OSIsoft provides a feature-rich presentation layer for existing manufacturing data with the context into engineering and design to drive daily and strategic operational decisions” said Jaclyn Arnold, Hexagon PPM Vice President, Owner Operator Solutions.
“The combined Hexagon and OSIsoft solutions are a major part of pushing our business to the next level," said Michael Fry, President & CEO, Deepwater Subsea.
- We can now pull up the P&IDs in SDx, click on a piece of equipment and have the trends from the PI tags appear on the same screen. This is the first time an end user can go to one place and get all the operations, maintenance, engineering and process data they need to do their duties. By having all this information readily available in a digital twin, I believe this is an industry first for the oil and gas industry.
HxGN SDx is a platform for creating digital twins from multiple data streams to improve asset health, reduce maintenance costs, and improve overall performance at chemical facilities, oil and gas operations and other industrial plants across the process industries.
OSIsoft's PI System is a global leading platform for managing and curating data from equipment, assets, plants and other critical operations.
The SDx Connector for OSIsoft effectively serves as a bridge between the two technologies, interfacing historical and real-time data from the PI System into Hexagon's models to provide plant managers, executives and engineers greater visibility while reducing the time and expense of data preparation.
