CAMBRIDGE, UK, Mar 4, 2016 - Already a big draw at major industry events during 2015, AVEVA announced the commercial availability of its showcase decision support system, AVEVA Engage. As visitors to AVEVA’s World Summit in Dubai in October, and members of the Early Access Program can testify, AVEVA Engage’s ground-breaking technology puts instant, intuitive access to critical Digital Asset information literally at the fingertips of an organisation’s key decision makers.
Tough trading conditions during the last 12 months have forced capital-intensive industries to slash costs. But forward-looking companies are focusing efforts on digital transformation to increase efficiency, achieve competitive advantage and be ready for an accelerated recovery when markets recover.
To support that transformation, and built with the involvement of a number of key industry customers, AVEVA Engage brings the Digital Asset to life through uniting AVEVA’s expertise in engineering information management, ultra-high definition (UHD) visualization and intuitive user interfaces. The result is a breathtakingly simple decision support system capable of instantly pinpointing information in the most complex of Digital Assets.
At the AVEVA World UK User Meeting this week, the Shell Design Center in Aberdeen, which has taken part in the Early Access Program, is presenting the benefits of AVEVA Engage in operations.
Entirely touch-driven and capable of running on the latest UHD/4K super-sized touchscreens, such as Microsoft’s stunning 84” Surface Hub, AVEVA Engage’s innovation is evident in the number of use cases that have been identified by customers during the company’s Early Access Program:
- collaborative design reviews
- constructability reviews
- creating commissioning plans
- central control room work overviews
- onshore/offshore troubleshooting
- preventative maintenance scheduling
- modification project planning
‘AVEVA Engage is a fantastic example of our leading-edge know-how creating another world first, something that is unique to the capital engineering industries’, said Richard Longdon, CEO, AVEVA. ‘With many leading industry names helping us to develop the software, and many others involved in our Early Access Program, we know that this technology is a much-needed resource for the markets we serve. It reflects the company’s continuing commitment to extending the ways in which customers can access and interact with their Digital Assets.’
‘In such tight market conditions, our customers are all looking to technology to help dramatically improve their business operations,’ said Dave Wheeldon, CTO, AVEVA. ‘In AVEVA Engage, I believe we are delivering technology that will lead to a paradigm shift; a recognition of the fundamental importance of their Digital Assets to improving efficiency, safety and reliability. Through working closely with our customers we were able to quickly demonstrate how quick and easy this system is to use for all decision makers. By putting the right information quickly and easily at your fingertips, you can find the answers you need without any real training on the system. The functionality, intuitive interface and depth of detail that AVEVA Engage provides is, quite simply, unmatched by any other product on the market today.’
AVEVA Engage is just another in a long line of industry firsts from AVEVA. These include the world’s first plant walk-through visualization system and the world’s first plant design solution for lean construction (AVEVA Everything3D).
