Ten years ago, VisualAIM’s consultants, engineers, and inspection specialists brought together our experience to develop our next generation cloud-based API 581 Risk-based Inspection Software.
During one of our implementation projects, we needed a faster and more accurate way to create a master equipment list from P&IDs without going through a manual process. We wanted a solution capable of creating an asset register of ALL components on the drawings. The solution we found allowed us to not only generate a direct asset register from drawings, but also solved a critical problem faced by facilities – how to enable the digital twin with only legacy brownfield drawings. This resulted in a new and innovative product: The Intelligent Drawing Platform (IDP).
Traditional Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) has failed because they ignore the people that need the information the most, namely: plant engineers, maintenance, operators, and inspections-
the personnel who run a plant.
The IDP creates situational awareness enabling plant personnel to visualize, contextualize and analyze data from within the familiar environment of their plant drawings.
We are a team of business analysts, consultants, software, and mechanical engineers who understand and are committed to solving the challenges faced by the process industries today.
