Hexagon AB, a global leader in digital solutions, today announces HxGN SDx™, a modular, cloud-based asset lifecycle information management (ALIM) solution that optimises efficiency, improves decision-making, and ensures safety throughout the entire lifecycle of an industrial facilities within the power, oil and gas industries. SDx is one of the many innovations being showcased this week at HxGN LIVE 2018, Hexagon’s annual digital technology conference.
SDx is a data-centric SaaS solution that creates and maintains the “digital twin” of an industrial facility. SDx leverages the data within the digital twin to provide value-based work processes covering the complete facility lifecycle – improving project and operational efficiency while reducing risk.
“Customers are turning to Hexagon to realise the benefits of digital transformation. SDx is the solution upon which customers can make that happen, creating and managing the ever-evolving digital twin where both engineering data and documentation are created, maintained, and viewed throughout the facility lifecycle,” said Ola Rollén, Hexagon President and CEO. “The result is simple – universal access to trustworthy information.”
SDx includes four independent, integrated modules – Projects, Operations, Construction, and Completions – that address an industrial facility’s major lifecycle stages. Each module provides work processes, roles, and content tailored to address a specific lifecycle phase, along with a comprehensive set of capabilities and additional options that can be licensed as needed.
True to Hexagon’s goal of providing owner operators, project management contractors, and EPCs with flexibility to meet specific needs without the need for customisation, SDx enables lower costs, optimised business operations, and project delivery within budget and on schedule – all while increasing safety and reducing risk.
