Context and challenges
The complexity of nuclear power plant construction is growing exponentially. It is therefore essential to be able to rely on information systems that combine engineering processes with a collaborative approach to benefit all stakeholders.
Multi-D® technology has been developed by Atomstroyexport (ASE), the engineering branch of Rosatom. Multi-D® is a unified portal enabling access to various relevant information, as well as the seamless integration of existing software, ASE products and tools and engineering processes.
A ‘Proof Of Concept’ (POC) has been jointly developed by ASE and Assystem for a major nuclear client and more specifically for its operating fleet’s engineering centre. This was completed to comply with its requirement to digitalise its engineering processes. The aim of this POC, applied to an actual case, was to demonstrate the feasibility of this tool and the significant gains it could deliver.
Within this framework, the client has appointed Assystem to provide advice and support for the deployment of Multi-D® among client teams.
Four Multi-D® modules have been customised within the frame of this project: requirements management, configuration management (and change management), documentation management and 2D/3D visualisation.
