Digitalization

If existing plants are not documented enough or significant changes have been made to the existing documentation not included in the existing documentation, the current situation in the plant can be optimised by an engineering reconstruction. This is an example of reverse engineering applications, also called as-built engineering. However, reverse engineering studies are needed in the process of plant modernization, capacity building, energy efficiency improvement and plant transportation. There are two ways to implement reverse engineering for an existing industrial plant:

  1. Manual Reverse Engineering: Site changes analysis and site studies are carried out by qualified personnel. This method is:
    • • time consuming,
    • • costly,
    • • less precise and therefore less reliable
  2. Reverse Engineering with Laser Scanning: In this method, 3-D modeling is the result of the scanning of the plants after processing of the point cloud obtained by laser scanning device. This method is:
    • • fast,
    • • more economical,
    • • highly accurate and reliable

As Gizil Enerji, we offer plant managers integrated solutions as one-stop-shop in 3D modeling and the creation of “as-built” drawings using laser technology. We follow the systematic below in reverse engineering process:

  1. Obtaining point cloud with laser scanning,
  2. Processing point cloud and applying corrections to ensure that the final model is the closest to the physical model,
  3. Creating 3D CAD model,
  4. Making data entry into 3D model and making it a smart model,
  5. Ensuring integration with various systems,
