Virtualisation

We Bring Virtualisation to Life Sciences to Further the Digitalisation of Operations

Virtualisation enables the creation a 360-degree visual twin of your assets. It allows a full, immersive experience without the need to physically be in the space. This technology has been used for many years in the oil and gas industry where visiting offshore platforms is expensive, dangerous and restricted to essential visits only. Now CXV Global brings this technology to Life Sciences to further the digitalisation of operations.

Virtualise Your Entire Facility, Specific Areas, Individual Equipment or Utilities

Our engineers capture technicians scan the physical area and process the imagery to create a 360-degree virtual realm. This model can then be used for collaboration with colleagues, trainees, new hires, vendors, and contractors.

Applications of virtualisation include:

Training

Disruption of operations to facilitate training of staff is a costly inconvenience in Life Sciences when the same training could be effectively carried out in a virtual way. Allowing trainees to experience a room layout, walk through a space and interact with equipment from all angles is possible without physically being in that space. It allows for risk-free immersion in the environment in which they will be deployed and for testing and certification to take place. In Life Sciences, this can allow trainees to interact with virtual versions of real equipment, without the need to gown up or other GxP precautions/risks.

Augmented Reality

Areas/equipment in the virtual space can be augmented by linking to content associated with them.  For example, a machine in a virtual space can have clickable links added that allow the user to access training manuals, calibration records, SOPs or work instructions. Links can be real-time channels to enterprise-wide content management systems, so that fully compliant and version-controlled content is delivered to the end user.

Remote Access

As demonstrated by the Covid-19 restrictions, access on site can be interrupted without warning, impacting projects and planned upgrades. Having a virtualised twin allows communication and visibility of an area to be shared without the need to physically visit. For example, when discussing a maintenance issue with a vendor, communicating the specifics of the issue is greatly enhanced by being able to share a virtualisation of the exact area being discussed.

Upgrades / Additions of Equipment

A virtual space can be used to assess the impact of adding more equipment into an area. For example, if a new line is being planned in an existing packaging hall, a 3D model of the line can be dropped into the virtualisation to assess any pinch-points or otherwise unintended impacts of equipment and room design.
