September 5, 2019 - Siemens Digital Industries Software and Bentley Systems announced the availability of a Capital Asset Lifecycle Management (CALM) solution for Teamcenter software. This solution, developed collaboratively by both companies, was created to address the challenges typically faced across an enterprise’s greenfield and brownfield capital projects.. These challenges can adversely affect the efficiency of the operational plant or system. To address these challengesTeamcenter CALM solutions help companies make the transition to digitalization for the planning, design, procurement, construction, and operation of capital assets. The Teamcenter CALM solution can consolidate asset data and weave a digital thread from project delivery into operations, enabling the creation of a closed-loop digital twin— the virtual representation of a physical asset—to visualize and simulate project designs, construction execution, and operational performance.
The CALM solution provides capital program management capabilities as well as a simulation-driven approach to design, construction, and operations. By leveraging these simulation and optimization technologies, capital program stakeholders can initially monitor, then improve, their assets’ performance. The solution consolidates project and operational data from disparate systems, including 1D, 2D, & 3D design and engineering data from third-party CAD/CAE/BIM tools and/or from PlantSight, forming a single digital thread of asset data that is accessed through a secure, traceable enterprise ecosystem.
The asset data is enriched by enterprise-level visualizations and insight, as well as data-driven enterprise business processes to manage the evolution of data, understand requirements, manage the impact of change and enable decision-support via dashboards and analytics. This combination can provide insight and oversight for increased safety and risk management across projects. Finally, the digital thread enables the creation of a digital twinwhich can be simulated and used to bring the virtual and real worlds together, creating a closed loop decision environment for the continual optimization of an enterprise’s capital assets.
