Partnering to Deliver Digital Twins
Hexagon’s HxGN SDx platform enables clients in the oil, gas, and chemicals sectors to develop digital twins. OSIsoft’s PI System looks to help manufacturers manage, curate, and gain insights from the data generated by sensors, devices, and processes in the production line. The HxGN SDx Connector for OSIsoft, which was released in February 2020, enables the firms’ mutual customers to integrate data collected via OSIsoft into HxGN SDx digital twins. HxGN SDx also connects to SAP Plant Maintenance and Leica TruView.
Digital twins’ ability to create a virtual model of a piece of machinery or the whole production line in order to, for example, understand the impact of alterations on performance in real time is a critical tool for plant managers and factory owners. However, to be successful manufacturers need to have all the relevant information readily available.
Hexagon’s release of the SDx Connector for OSIsoft is both evidence of manufacturers’ appetite for digital twins and an acknowledgement of the challenges in creating them.
