To a professional responsible for the safe and efficient operation of an oil and gas facility, today's immersive 3D computer games might seem like only a form of engaging relaxation. Computer processing power can be considered as a sort of digital budget, which has to be apportioned by an application to achieve optimum overall performance. In engineering design, 3D visual rendering is less important than more immediately productive features such as responsive positioning of complex objects and sophisticated clash detection. But as processing power has increased, to overlook the potential of realistic 3D representation is to miss an opportunity to increase design productivity and quality. Based on the development at Aveva, for design tasks, only limited visual cues are necessary to create a convincing representation of reality. By incorporating these into its latest design solution, Aveva Everything3D (E3), the company provides designers with intuitive visualization without slowing system performance. Combining more powerful design functionalities with the ability to accurately capture the as-built asset and associate types of information with every other type is fundamentally changing the way plants is created, operated, and maintained. It now provides the enabling technology that will trigger the development of lean construction methodologies. It enables existing legacy assets to be brought into the digital environment for more efficient management, and it supports highly efficient, safe and compliant plant operations. The future plant will be both a physical and a digital entity. Source

In tough times, businesses seek to diversify into adjacent markets or to apply their skills and resources in new ways. But shipbuilding's unique nature has traditionally made diversification difficult, more so if its Engineering & Design software cannot readily be applied to different types of project. This paper examines how the latest generation of marine software overcomes this by integrating many individual applications and datasets with its counterpart for the plant industry. This provides two valuable business opportunities: • collaboration with plant industry specialists on complex offshore projects • the ability to directly apply outfitting skills and tools on plant-based projects such as power barges. © 2013: The Royal Institution of Naval Architects.

For ship hulls without plans or when rapid repairs to the shell are required laser scanning and other optical survey techniques offer an excellent method of capturing shape. The point cloud datasets captured during these surveys are large and contain areas where the hull is obscured or poorly captured due to constraints in the docking environment As the survey may not represent the exact surface required for engineering, completely automatic fitting techniques arc not suitable and the process must be guided by a software user. This study presents an approach which augments existing surface definition techniques by providing the user with capability to fit definition geometry where the hull is cleanly visible in the swvey. In poorly captured areas, the user must control definition manually based on experience utilising any additional resources that may be available. As fitting is used selectively, there is no need to remove unwanted artefacts from the point cloud which is time consuming. A case study using this approach in a shipbuilding environment is presented and highlights methods of validating the accuracy of the surface with respect to the point cloud. © 2015: The Royal Institute of Naval Architects.
