US: Bentley has announced the release of AssetWise APM V7.2 — its enhanced version of asset performance management (APM) software. The new version allows users to benefit from immersive APM, a visual environment in which hypermodelling is used to spatially enable operations and maintenance for the interactive inspection of critical assets.
What differentiates Bentley’s AssetWise APM V7.2 is the unique capability to interact with the virtual plant and connect asset health data to 2D and 3D models of the plant. Bentley users can walk an inspection prior to going to the asset and make better decisions faster, announced Alan Kiraly, Bentley senior vice president, server products.
Also new in AssetWise APM V7.2 are analysis techniques used in Risk-based Inspections (RBI) and Reliability-centered Maintenance (RCM). Bentley uniquely delivers a single platform to support both RCM and RBI asset strategy development methods, as well as a comprehensive inspection data management system. This drives an enterprise-wide approach to managing risk, increasing uptime, and ensuring process safety and predictable production at the lowest lifecycle cost.
With the unique capability of addressing reliability and integrity across the lifecycle on a single platform, Bentley users are able to push reliability-based processes and practices earlier into the design phase of the asset lifecycle.
