Define, design, discuss projects in real time...
The most critical part of any project is technical collaboration which covers the entire life cycle of your project. Built for join technical collaboration the Nextensor gives user freedom to define, design, draw technical projects, generate cost reports and much more... The innovative feature of one-click visualization help user to save time in visualizing different parts of an engineering system.
It is ready to use, simple, and intuitive. All the tools needed are integrated into a single solution that is entirely controlled by the user and his own firewall, including transparency of shared data, synchronization, etc. It is the perfect daily tool for distributed teams for highly effective collaboration.
The collaborative module provides a new generation tool for remote teamwork with internal and external teams. Additionally, Nextensor offers instant and safe communication with voice, video, tag-centric chat, and screen share.
By uniting technical teams from anywhere, anytime, anyplace, whether everyone is working remotely, or a mixture of remote collaboration and in-place teams, valuable time and effort is greatly reduced and profitability increased.
Any nature projects...
Nextensor’s design capabilities feature CAD functionality using pre-built models. In addition to generating conventional schematics, it creates multipage projects with hyperlinks, work notes linked to each model. ISA elements can be created with separate matching visual representation using image and GIFs, with one-click conversion to its visual representation. This allows engineers simplify the communication with non-engineers and utilize it for training ...
The possibilities are endless for designing practically any project, plant, system, or whatever your specific needs require. Nextensor brings together drag-and-drop functionality using pre-built models of components for virtually any system or task, drawing, tagging, customization by the user, as well as creation by the user. The capabilities are very powerful, yet the learning curve is not steep, and the entire package is clear and easy to use.
Technical data for models and projects include datasheets, specifications, variables, such as inputs and outputs, properties, and descriptions...
Just like in the real world, this makes it possible to work with another individual, smaller group within the team, or the entire team while collaborating on the design process.
The feature makes it possible to visualize the project or processes with one click, converting any schematic drawings/projects into visual representations and vice versa. Connect your existing components to ISA symbols effortlessly. Switch back and forth between ISA elements and “real world” graphics, GIFs, etc. with one click simplicity.
This lets you communicate easily with customers and partners and non-technical teams when required so everyone can understand the exact scope of the project...
Quickly prepare manuals, presentations, and most importantly, take advantage of this functionality with iTrain where you can create and manage truly cross-industry interactive training material based on functional digital twins created in iBuild.
Secure documentation management
Documentation is critical. A clear and secure record of your project from start to finish is absolutely necessary and current features cover all of this with seamless documentation of everything.
What makes Nextensor different ?
Engineering projects usually require team of sales, project managers, engineers, designers, field personnel, after-sales support where Nextensor's flexibility helps to manage that too...
The creation and management of folders and documents of models and projects are done within Nextensor and stored on your hard disk behind your own computer firewall.
In a dedicated sync drive with cloud infrastructure the team do not have to worry about security and availability of the files. GoogleDrive, OneDrive, Dropbox, and some others can be trusted and relied on for seamless sharing, syncronization and version control…
This approach let you independently setup a collaborative team while having enterprise-level flexibility, security, and privacy at no additional cost.
Project and model documentation offers pre-built and fully customizable folders, giving you complete flexibility for all your design and project requirements.
Manage and analyse...
The costs analytics feature can greatly reduce your costs by controlling and analyzing assets and projects costs and carbon footprint.
A very important feature is the built-in project cost management system that make it possible to practically execute and analyze all costs related to and within the project from design to delivery.
The flexibility of the project cost management system gives you the ability to easily customize it according to your needs. All project costs can be easily justified and validated consolidating the data from drawn/designed project.
Besides the operating and capital expenses of models and projects, there is included as an integral part of the cost feature, the TCO (total cost of ownership), which defines value across the complete life cycle of an asset.
Build own digital models
Nextensor's Digital Models represent virtual and funcitonal replicas of any real-world assets and physical systems which can be virtually recreated with its behavioural logic, automation control and operation. They are open and flexible, cross-industry applications with rich controls for operation and automation.
Digital models are “smart” and flexible, allowing you to customize existing models or create your own using generic products including more than 600 models from industrial libraries. They are on-fly visualized animations with audio and video.
The rich properties of digital models allow the creation and management of specifications, consumables, costs, controls, and documentation.
Digital models provide manual and automated functional logic for input and output variables, operational processes, automation, and interlocking.
Create and manage full documentation of drawings, data sheets, specifications, manuals, and media.
The hot-spotting feature provides a means for internal and multipage cross-linking, which also allows external linking of each Nextensor model with 3rd party external 3D simulators...
Operation, automation and more...
Simulations allow you to “test run” your entire system virtually.
- Simulate the true operational flow of any asset, from start to finish. This lets you watch the system work through every step, from all sources and inputs to all outputs including finished product, waste, etc.
This cross-industry capability is the ideal solution for simulating working environments of any nature of assets, including assets with properties, processing equipment, manufacturing machinery, instrumentation, systems, and solutions.
- Simulations let you play with variables for models and projects, such as manual inputs, calculated inputs, calculated outputs, individual models, complete project, and more.
- Simulate automation control, either own design or imported for flows in operation and process, SCADA simulation, interlocking, and more.
- Using simulations, rather than building and running a live project or system allows you to see everything in operation in the virtual world, rather than risking costly errors or oversights in the real world.
See the actual flow of any nature of asset as it would be in live operation or process.
- Run virtual upgrades and commissioning.
- Validate any nature of asset.
Interactive Training Creation and Management
In an educational, rather than operational setting, technical collaboration develops and enhances an individual’s research, knowledge, and technical skills. Furthermore, it enhances acquisition of soft skills, such as communication, cooperation, and teamwork.
iTrain lets you create and add your own training materials, such as courses, tests, etc.
Create interactive and blended assessments, evaluations, training, and technical courses based on digital twins. Train in the virtual world, rather than taking on the risks and expenses involved with on-the-job training.
Manage such things as assessments, evaluations, training, upgrading, tasks, and tests remotely or on-site.
iTrain makes training possible both in the classroom and remotely for all industries, with interactive training, upgrading, tasks, and assessments.
Train customers, suppliers, operators, and service staff, as well.
Assess and evaluate personnel and contractors before they ever begin their tasks.
Customize automation, lock-out/tag-out and what-if training.
Greatly reduce the costs, safety concerns, and risks involved with sending personnel into new situation for hands-on training. Train them seamlessly, realistically, but virtually first for every conceivable task, scenario, and emergency they may face in the real world.
