VISUAL ENGINEERING Seeing is believing


COMMON PROJECT CHALLENGES • • • • • • •

Complex projects, even the small ones Multiple companies involved Geographically dispersed project teams Multi-national and multi-cultural project teams Few standards Budget control - time and cost Communication – Communication - Communication


AKER SOLUTIONS The Reliance project

Visually backed discussions at every stage


VISUALIZATION FOR LIFE CYCLE INFORMATION (LCI)

From early concepts to final documentation.


DELIVERABLES

- in the Aker Reliance Project

Field layouts, Stack-up posters, Handbooks, Interactive presentations, Project presentation, as-built doc and animation films for training


VISUAL ENGINEERING

- huge cost saving potential Errors identified and corrected in the early stages of the project: • ROV access • Collision detection • Equipment Interfaces • Etc. Cheaper to uncover errors with Visual Engineering and visualization, than in fabrication or when trying to install it offshore…


VISUAL ENGINEERING

- from feed to engineering, to fabrication, installation and operations • • •

Allowing fact-based “What-if?” discussions at every stage. Encourages to participation and discussions, helping finding the best solutions. Result? Better decision-making throughout the project’s life cycle


VISUAL ENGINEERING - in practice

Most customers choose to sign an NDA and a call-off contract, as it gives the project flexibility and low-threshold to use Visual Engineering when required. Xvision rep. participates in product or project meetings, visualizing: • Status • Progress • Suggestions • Decisions Xvision leverages its experience, 3D model database and technical understanding, The focus is to communicate and get agreement across language, cultural and discipline boundaries. Visuals are built to suit the forum either technical or more commercial and the level of detail necessary to gain agreement.


ACCURATE But without unnecessary details.
