Predictive Vision Report Summary

Project ID: 674049

Periodic Reporting for period 1 - Predictive Vision (Predictive Vision Saving lives in dangerous working environments with Predictive Risk Management software)

Reporting period: 2015-07-01 to 2016-03-31

Summary of the context and overall objectives of the project

Predictive Vision is all about saving lives in dangerous working environments with Predictive Risk Management software.

The main intent and ultimate goal of the solution is to create a unique real-time predictive risk management system for usage at the frontline operations, ensuring entire hazardous industries (e.g. Oil & Gas, Utilities, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, etc.) will be transformed to operate safely.

eVision will demonstrate its innovation in a relevant operational environment of present eVision clients in the Oil & Gas industry (Shell, BP), by demonstrating and validating a very intelligent system that can forecast all kinds of possible risks in any operational hazardous enterprise environment by combining analysis of historic data with real time data on one hand, and analysis of data resulting from planning on the other. The innovation project is expected to combine information from over 25 different software systems, not only giving a real-time overview of risk levels but also giving early warning of any increased risk level.

The solution being created by eVision will revolutionize the way industries are working today. Not only will the system be designed to prevent large incidents with global impact by ensuring process safety, but the system also allows personal safety to be planned and managed more effectively, decreasing global industry fatality levels.

Work performed from the beginning of the project to the end of the period covered by the report and main results achieved so far

By today few important milestones have been reached within the project. A product road-map has been created and skilled project teams have been defined and established. This solved as a base to create the fundament of the solution platform, which has been revealed to eVision’ key customers: the proof of concept has been demonstrated to Shell in Q4 2015 and BP in Q1 2016. The demonstrations have been commercialized by signing a contract with BP and submitting a proposal to Shell Downstream for the iP&ID solution that will be incorporated into the One Vision Suite platform as a first step. Business cases have been drafted to explain the value of the integrated iP&ID with One Vision Suite in which the customer showed confidence. The customers provided a positive feedback to the business case for making use of intelligent mapping between the equipment tree in the One Vision Suite and the iP&IDs.
Further, the pattern recognition module development is improve or enhanced to detect the symbol in iP&ID Symbol Library, test cases have been executed to determine the accuracy and KPI’s have been defined.
The Barrier model and Bow Tie concepts have been defined as well as the required source data. The company involved different data providers and partners and created the various proof of concepts, for example for the interfaces to integrate with production data, alarm management data and the integration to GIS, MMS and interactive P&ID.

Progress beyond the state of the art and expected potential impact (including the socio-economic impact and the wider societal implications of the project so far)

Several modules of the Predictive Vision have been developed and are already becoming part of current products of eVision. For example, the interactive P&ID and competency management module are being integrated with Permit Vision, the main product of eVision. The integration will not only increase process safety and prevent incidents and accidents, but are expected to deliver significant cost savings for customers as result of an increase in the efficiency of operations (e.g. Hands on Toll Time or HoTT).
