Integrated Plant Engineering.jpg

Engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) companies and owner operator (OO) engineering departments must work to achieve expected levels of operating performance for complex facilities while meeting high safety and environmental standards. Any break in collaboration between all the engineering disciplines during construction often leads to inconsistencies and costly project delays.

Dassault Systèmes Integrated Plant Engineering Industry Solution Experience, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, helps achieve performance, reliability and safety while reducing development delays and costs. It leverages the possibilities offered to develop a virual twin of the future actual plant. The digital twin is the digital multidisciplinary configured mock-up in the age of experience that integrates multiphysics, multiscale and probabilistic simulations, creating a sustainable competitive edge through innovation.

Discover the Values of Integrated Plant Engineering Industry Solution Experience:

  • Managing conformity to meet initial project expectations
  • Physical consistency between all engineering disciplines
  • Ensuring engineering data integrity among all project stakeholders
  • Virtual testing of the plant safety and performance
  • Efficient collaboration regarding technical choices

Integrated wind turbine project development and product management

“No defect” plant engineering means that the design fulfills all project requirements. Unfortunately, information is not always properly captured during all plant lifecycle stages, leading to lack of traceability, loss of data integrity, and difficulty in utilizing knowledge.

Integrated Plant Engineering can help manage multi-discipline engineering data in an integrated way, from requirement definition to physical design through functional and logical process definition. Cross-linking these different engineering elements enables better impact analysis during modification and increased overall quality.

Key Highlights & Benefits

  • Contract and regulations decomposed into unique requirements
  • Requirement mapping with work breakdown structure
  • Engineering definition always consistent with requirement
  • Improve overall quality and traceability
  • Facilitate certification and regulatory compliance

Ensuring physical consistency between all engineering disciplines

“No defect” means perfect fitting of physical designs in order to efficiently install, erect, and construct the actual plant with all its components, systems, and structures. Civil engineering, steel structures, piping, and cabling are often designed using multiple 3D design tools.

Integrated Plant Engineering offers integration capabilities that enable you to gather designs from different sources and build a comprehensive virtual plant model. With this synthesis platform, you can perform 3D design validation, including clash and safety distance analysis, eliminating numerous potential sources of costly errors.

Key Hightlights & Benefits

  • Lifecycle controlled integration process to build the facility DMU (Digital Mockup)
  • ISO15926-compliant adapter integrates diverse CAD Data
  • Fully leverage the best application for each discipline
  • Comprehensive Interference checking tools
  • Minimize effort to validate consistency between each disciplines
  • Leverage the Plant Integrated DMU for downstream usages (various queries, 4D Simulation, …)

Virtual testing of plant safety

The blades are critical components of the wind turbine and subjected to large variations in stress (such as wide temperature range and severe weather) while operating in different conditions throughout the year. Composite materials are ideal for producing wind turbine blades, thanks to their strength, weight, and exceptional mechanical properties.

Dassault Systèmes Sustainable Wind Turbines offers a collaborative working framework in a single collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE®Platform where all users and applications – design, analysis, and manufacturing – can work together with an integrated data model. You can manage all aspects of composite blade design in an integrated manner, ranging from preliminary design all the way to structural certification via virtual testing. By working collaboratively and interactively in a global integrated environment, designers, analysts, and manufacturing engineers can ensure a reliable and robust composite blade design.

Key Highlights & Benefits

  • Collaborate with design and  and seamlessly share simulation data,
  • Define and deploy proven simulation methods across the enterprise,
  • Automate simulations processes on high-performance computing systems,
  • Manage design inputs and simulation results in a unified environment to guarantee integrity and secured intellectual property

Ensuring engineering data integrity among all project stakeholders

Safe Plant Engineering, based on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, offers a social collaboration platform as well as a structured environment with lifecycle controlled repositories.

Configuration management capabilities provide full control over the data, ensuring easy retrieval of the right version of a document and preserving information integrity. This is especially mandatory in a multi-contract context where all interfaces have to be carefully managed.

Key Highlights & Benefits

  • Versioned information provide validity status with complete traceability
  • Access plant assets from various view (geographical, per system…)
  • Maintain information integrity during Change Management
  • Configured information optimizes downstream processes (procurement, construction)
