The AEC (Architecture, Engineering, Construction) industry is continually evolving, and immersive technologies are playing a crucial role in fostering smarter and more efficient operations. Among these technologies, Extended Reality (XR) - encompassing Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and Mixed Reality (MR) - is making significant strides in transforming industry processes. PlatformXR offers a comprehensive range of XR solutions that provide tangible benefits to AEC organizations. Let's explore some key applications where PlatformXR can make a difference:
Operational Twin (Digital Twin) Integrations
Augmented reality (AR) on construction sites offers significant cost-saving benefits. Accurate on-site measurements using AR reduce human errors and optimize material usage. AR aids in construction planning, simulation, and logistics optimization, preventing costly mistakes. Overall, AR technology streamlines the construction process, minimizes rework, and optimizes resource utilization, resulting in substantial cost savings.
Streamlining Design Processes
In the world of facility design and engineering, real-time 3D assets and smart P&IDs (process and instrumentation diagrams) can play a crucial role. PlatformXR can integrate these elements, helping AEC professionals configure accurate facility layouts swiftly and efficiently. By providing enhanced visualization, AR helps detect design flaws and clashes before a project begins, minimizing rework and modifications. Improved collaboration and communication among stakeholders through AR-enabled devices prevent costly delays and misunderstandings.
PlatformXR can enhance the capabilities of AEC firms in the area of predictive maintenance. By integrating historical, real-time, and forecast data, it's possible to anticipate asset failures and necessary fixes. Our Augmented Reality utility provides OEMs and AEC companies multi-faceted tools to improve support and consistency, reduce training time, and complete work more efficiently within industries that have fluctuations in labor performance and availability.
