Intergraph SmartPlant Isometrics with INOVx Creates Piping Isometric Drawings from 'As-Built' Plant Models

Updating, plant piping drawings and documentation becomes faster, easier

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph(R) and INOVx(R) announce the integration of the industry-standard Intergraph SmartPlant(R) Isometrics with the INOVx RealityLINx(R) Asset Virtualization(TM) software to allow process industry operations and maintenance personnel to seamlessly create piping isometric drawings directly from "as-built" virtual plant models.

The integration allows plant based operations, maintenance and engineering staff to create up-to-date and accurate piping isometric drawings with SmartPlant Isometrics for inspection, fabrication and construction, based on the "as-built" high definition laser scanned model in RealityLINx Asset Virtualization.

SmartPlant Isometrics together with RealityLINx provides plant personnel with a simple, cost-effective way to update and then maintain old plant layout drawings and asset documentation. SmartPlant Isometrics is a cornerstone of SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO), enabling information associated with a pipe to be maintained and presented in different forms during the lifetime of the plant. Through the RealityLINx virtual asset model, plant operations and maintenance personnel can work within a laser scanned 3D virtual plant model and gain seamless, role-based access to asset related information across the enterprise.

"Most plants need an 'as-built' data model due to cumulative modifications of the original plant design. This 'as-built' asset model is created using INOVx's asset virtualization approach. Now, with their cooperation with Intergraph, the 'as-built' data model can be used to generate the isometric drawings with greater accuracy," said Ralph Rio, Research Director, ARC Advisory Group.

"Asset Virtualization is transforming best practices to take advantage of accurate virtual plant models," said Costantino Lanza, CEO of INOVx Solutions. "Through our cooperation with Intergraph, we are able to provide a convenient bridge to legacy work processes that depend heavily on isometric drawings. This is very important to our mutual customers."

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "Our work with INOVx provides exciting new capabilities for plant staff to leverage 'as-built' laser scans in the context of an integrated enterprise during the operational phase of the asset lifecycle. This development not only demonstrates our openness but also our continued efforts to integrate innovative solutions into the engineering enterprise to help owner operators operate their plants more safely and efficiently."
