Industrial Infrastructures Virtual Twin


Industrial Infrastructures are large-scale and highly complex systems that are meant to be operated over a long period of time and subject to very thorough regulations and restrictions from national/continental regulation authorities. In this context, Owner Operators have to build a unified plant referential – a “single source of truth” and achieve full traceability on requirements, data, and deliverables, and therefore efficiently prove compliance with regulations and constraints, with no compromises made on quality nor performance. Companies in charge of the design, such as Engineering, Procurement, and Construction companies or Responsible Designers, have to strive to achieve optimized, safe, and cost-effective designs. Next, Owner Operators of those complex plants need to streamline operations and manage plant maintenance efficiently.

The industrial infrastructures ecosystem needs not only to digitize the exchanges between each of their stakeholders, but also to completely restructure themselves in order to create a new value chain more suited to this new environment.

By using CATIA and 3DEXPERIENCE virtual twin technology, global infrastructures development actors will provide to all stakeholders a true virtual and contextual environment of their project, optimizing designs to make them cost-effective and boost project profit margins by unifying and connecting engineering disciplines, by simulating at any stage of the process and enhancing collaboration between stakeholders, by achieving full traceability on requirements, data and deliverables, by minimizing project risks through easily enforced validation and control processes.
