Today's infrastructures are increasingly complex, and their construction requires a degree of collaboration between a growing number of participants: designers, equipment suppliers, regulators, inspection bodies etc. Sharing reliable information between all stakeholders in real time has become a central focus and a necessity for industrial operators and project owners who must meet increasingly tight construction deadlines.
Today, the digital technologies available can deliver solutions that share information efficiently, based on the transition from document management to data management, thus providing a global overview of a project.
These technological developments require changes in methods, which consists of moving from a sequential project management structure to a system engineering approach. Today, such practices are developing in the field of infrastructures, and rely on platforms such as BIM and PLM.
BIM and PLM can improve the quality of infrastructure design, as early as the preliminary phases, by enabling better integration between disciplines (civil engineering, process, I&C, etc.). In the construction phase, they also enable builders to avoid additional work through access to reliable data already validated by the design office. Lastly, data management ensures the sustainability of infrastructures throughout their operation (facility management).
Assystem supports customers in implementing new project management methods linked to system engineering and in integrating suitable solutions (BIM, PLM, data architectures and open platforms), which can integrate legacy tools and solutions. Our aim is therefore to improve performance and collaboration, while ensuring that all players receive support in the use of these innovative solutions.
The data used come from different sources: 3D models, databases, industrial information systems, connected objects etc. Assystem integrates these data sources, which are more often than not managed via separate tools. This provides project stakeholders with simple, rapid and reliable access to information of interest to them.
Through multiple partnerships with start-ups, Assystem also assists its customers to deploy leading-edge digital engineering technologies such as augmented reality, predictive maintenance, big data analysis or complex simulation techniques.
