Our platform is used in both the project phase and operations phase of an asset. The focus and functions used are normally a little different, but essentially in the project phase you are building your asset’s Information Twin, while in operations you are using, maintaining and modifying your asset’s Information Twin. Both of these approaches are handled by our platform.
The simple answer is yes. We help suppliers to create, manage and maintain the Information Twins for their products and make them easily available for their customers.
By collaboration, we mean that we want you to use our technology to work with as many colleagues, partners, customers and suppliers as you want, with the platform doing the heavy lifting. For sharing, we mean we want our customers of all types to get the benefit from making generic supplier information visible and reusable within a single common environment.
By establishing your Information Twin of each item of equipment, each system and the whole asset in Sharecat you have a verified high quality and most importantly structured source of information which is the foundation for a digital twin. This can then be connected to any Digital Twin viewer avoiding the typical high implementation costs issues of digital twins, and preventing being tied to a single Digital Twin product.
Yes you can, we can also be used as the management and maintenance tool for your reference data libraries (data structures and definitions). Alternatively, we can support engineering tools if they are defined as the master tag system.
Yes you can, we have many clients who use our document functions as an EDMS, either on their own or integrated with our tag data and/or our product and equipment functions to enhance the value of the information held within documents.
Yes you can and without additional cost - so long as you’re working together on the same information. Enabling collaboration is at the core of everything we do to maximise productivity improvements. Our current record is an Owner/Operator, 23 x EPC and fabrication contractors and > 400 suppliers all working together in a project execution phase of an asset.
Use of automated functions such as distribution, live reporting, structuring, verification and expediting removes a significant amount of time and cost compared to using a human and is more reliable. That’s only the start, streamlined tools mean that you can quickly and simply find the right information, reduce human error, identify and fix issues, all of which reduce risk for overruns on schedule and cost.
