In proposing a modern approach to process industry operational integrity management, a question that often surfaces is "What is the most complex activity within operational integrity management that affects performance, productivity and efficiency?". There are variety of answers to this question, one answer being "Human limitations in conceiving data to make informed decisions". The objective of this presentation is to outlines the key benefits of mixed reality platforms in presenting data to managers, operators and maintenance personnel working in an Oil & Gas facility.
Process industry in the past did not generate as much data as it does today. With the amount of data generated every day, it is necessary to innovate so as to analyze data and visually represent them thereby providing a "total immersive knowledge". In light of the recent developments in mixed reality platforms, it is now possible to use this technology to visually present data focused around the needs of humans. Using mixed reality, one can merge the view of real equipment of a plant with a virtual world of data, simulation and instructions, such that both the physical and digital world co-exist.
Few of the applications of this technology in the Oil & Gas industry are 1) providing safe operations, maintenance and repair instructions real time 2) monitor, record and analyze data real time during inspections 3) visualize data outside the control room 4) effectively train personnel during visits 5) analyze trends and predict outcomes 6) share data with managers, vendors for efficient decisions.
The presentation outlines the key benefits of mixed reality platforms such as Microsoft Hololens in presenting data to managers, operators and maintenance personnel working in an Oil & Gas facility. The presentation will also discuss findings of a sponsored pilot project where mixed reality was implemented. At the end, the presentation will also raise the current challenges and possible solutions in successfully implementing such technologies.
