IDEA’s Digital Transformation team continues making progress in the development of an ad hoc digital twin for ILBOC with its ‘BIM Digital Twin’ solution. The objective is to transform the leading high-tech lubricants plant into a ‘smart factory’ or smart industry, and position it as one of the most digitally advanced companies on the Iberian Peninsula. To this end, disruptive technologies are being incorporated into their increasingly flexible and modular production processes.
Very few companies have managed to become as advanced as BIM Digital Twin – Alejandro Cadenas I Manager of Digital Transformation.
According to our Manager of Digital Transformation, Alejandro Cadenas, there are very few companies today that have managed to become as advanced as ‘BIM Digital Twin’. According to our Manager of Digital Transformation, Alejandro Cadenas, there are very few companies today that have managed to become as advanced as ‘BIM Digital Twin’. To date, we have yet to find a solution that is that flexible and suitable for so many different types of industries. We are very proud to have achieved a solution developed by engineers for engineers, but what progress have we made and are we making for our client, ILBOC?
Hierarchical data structure
The Bim Digital Twin features information panels showing the relationship between floor plan elements. Data structure makes it easier to hierarchise assets into different levels, which are displayed in order and can be filtered in order to clearly identify related assets. These dynamic filters can be customised and applied to other panels to only search for assets related to the filter It is possible to select the asset from the lists. The asset is highlighted in the model for easy location and identification.
The Asset Health proposal provides information on the health of assets, indicating whether they are performing in such a way that their lifetime can be extended to the maximum. For this purpose, the colour corresponding to the health index of the critical assets is shown in the model, thus helping to facilitate the operators’ interpretation of their condition and decision-making.
Work permits are retrieved and represented, including asset information, status, description and other data relevant to the work. Geometry is also generated around the equipment, dictated by the logic of the work permit itself, which defines the radius of the exclusion zone. The Digital Twin then uses this information to detect and report clashes between work permits, indicating their severity as defined in the safety logic of operations.
A solution that cuts across all sectors
