COGS for VCOG are plug-ins that support daily operations with Fit-For-Purpose visualization. A COG blends VCOGs virtual 3D environments with workflows, enterprize data and business analytics.
Pre-define walk-throughs, highlight, isolate and hide or crop the asset to fully support your design review. During reviews, you can create red-line markups, take measurements and add notes within the 3D environment. After the review you can print out minutes of meeting containing all the information directly linked to screenshots. If you keep your findings in a database or spreadsheet you can connect it to the 3D environment and see action status at a glance.
Link schedule, cost and sub-contractor information to the 3D asset environment. See the installation sequence and use the time-slider to see forecasted assemblies. Walk trough your virtual installation for an immidiate overview and see progress on various systems. Share the same picture throughout the whole project organization to avoid confusion.
See material handling operations in a detailed engineering design environment. Run quick simulations and detect collisions, check line of sight, crane accessibility and access routes. When the design updates, the app will automatically notify you of any constructional changes that effects your simulations. Define dummy objects, drag and drop them into the scene to represent equipment footprint at an early stage.
The virtual asset environment gives offshore workers an immersive brief of the asset. Anyone can navigate intuitively similar to Google Street view. A search & find feature guides you to the components with help from mini-maps and find the most efficient path with help of an easy-to-use route-planner. With VR headset and 360 treadmills users physically walk real life distances inside the virtual asset environment.
Instant overview of all work orders, work permits and the category of work that they represent. Push notifications will highlight any simultaneous operations in conflict with the safety restrictions or work orders in proximity of an identified hazard. The COG taps into the planning system and supports forecasting. The time-slider provides a time-lap view identifying potential conflicts down the road.
Simple drag and drop features help you to quickly populate and plan your deck layout. Dummy objects, if needed, represent unspecified equipment, and behavioral conditions can be implemented to automate the layout process. Features such as collision detection, accumulative weight on deck, restrictions for escape ways and indications of maximum lifting height help keeping the overview. The COG consist of equipment library, 2D/3D deck areas and time scheduling/planning tools.
In case of mustering, the app display updated status of the number of people registered at different mustering stations. Dependent on the level of tracking information available, the COG can provide real time overview of where each individual person is located. If there are sensor gates along the escape route, you will know exactly where people are, at any time. In case of a crisis, it could be crucial to know if the person is moving or not. The information can be encrypted and only available under certain conditions.
It can be time consuming to find a specific valve in a maze of pipelines. With VCOGs Pipeline Follower COG you can easily follow a specific pipeline through decks and across modules and systems. You do not have to remove an isolation to identify the pipeline. The 3D environment is as detailed as reality, but the pipeline in focus stands out where you can clearly see it. You don't need the ISO drawing anymore, just fill in the valves you want to inspect and the COG will take you there
