Asset Management

A database of information regarding each of your assets, it can hold basic information like its unique identification number, description, serial number, location, make, model and supplier. Or the asset manager may even hold advanced detail including Maintenance, Finance and documentation.

Maintenance Management

A database of information dedicated to the maintenance history and scheduling of assets, this will include cost and location of spares, staffing requirements to complete the maintenance and any documentation required.

HSE

A record of the principles and requirements a company holds in regards of its health and safety for both the environment and its staff. This will also hold policies and objectives, risk management, performance monitoring, audit and reviews and commitment and leadership accountability.

Finance

A finance system is a broad term but can control anything from timesheet data, asset depreciation costs, profit and loss details, cash flow forecasting, sales, economic development…

Document Management

A solution for storing documentation, tagging and categorising to allow it to be found easily for future use. These systems can even control a check in and out process for updating of documents and the ability to archive.

Quality Management

A quality management system (QMS) is a collection of business processes focused on consistently meeting customer requirements and enhancing their satisfaction. It is aligned with an organization's purpose and strategic direction (ISO9001:2015). It is expressed as the organizational goals and aspirations, policies, processes, documented information and resources needed to implement and maintain [1]

Permit & Work Order System

Permit and Work Order Systems are designed to make sure that the work that’s about to be carried out has had all safety matters have been accounted for and that its been approved by management, operations and everyone who is involved in the job.

Scheduling

A calendar system designed to manage events with the right team at the right date and time.

Monitoring Systems

DCS, PLC and even IOT devices out in the field designed to monitor temperature, level, pressure levels, position and proximity; for both safety and automation reasons.

Maintenance & Finance

Reports built around the maintenance requirements of assets and their financial information, this will help flag up if its more cost effective to replace an asset rather than run another years maintenance plan on it.

A CLOUD EAM SOFTWARE HUB

4D Lizard Enterprise asset management (EAM) software enables process sites in the oil and gas sector to manage their valuable assets, ensuring more time-efficient and effective operations. The goal of EAM software is to control and measure asset performance, allowing for the optimization of workflow practices, maintenance costs, and asset productivity.


Where can the software be used?

In the office:

With our cloud based server, and your personal log in, you can manage the access for each team member and log in via any computer or laptop. Once into the system, you can manage the documents, assets, work permits, order history and much more.

On site:

Gone are the days of searching through paperwork and carrying it on site. Now you simply take your iPad (lewis and Lee know the correct name for the pads not iPad lol) and either search the area you are working within or tap the asset for the ID number, photos, history. Quick and simple.




THE BENEFITS


Central HUB:

Terminals typically run with multiple software systems.
These can include finance, SHE, asset maintenance, document, quality, scheduling, monitoring, work order and stock control systems.
Having a central Hub for every system on a terminal provided with the new 4D Lizard software this eliminates the possibility of duplication of information across a site.
4D Lizard is the management of your asset management systems Utilising asset information held within these management systems but displayed in a 3D model/PID format is proving to be just what the engineers are looking for.


Mobile Compatible:

A3D can provide ATEX-rated tablets to collect data from site equipment with NFC tags that will automatically correctly identify the correct asset, display it within the company’s 3D model or PID files and give access to the asset management system, removing the need for paper completely.
Servicing update information can be updated directly to the ATEX-rated tablet, which in turn updates the assert management system.


Data Visualisation:

displaying this via 4D Lizard using the 3D model file, an operator has a visual display of the assets along with their respective locations.
By adding a simple 4D Lizard routine with a corresponding colour code based on when those assets are due an inspection, the operator can clearly visualise the data and see where and which assets are due for an inspection.


Custom Built:

4D Lizard can be client specific having custom components depending on the client’s needs to manage a particular site.
A3D have worked in the industry and have realised throwing technology at the business without understanding how it enables the strategy is just another project that is set up for failure. We have come up with a solution which benefits the client’s needs, tailored to which ever asset management system that’s already in place on site.
4D Lizard doesn’t just benefit the organisations accounting it also aids the individuals on the ground.


Detailed Asset Reports:

Terminals typically run with multiple software systems.
These can include, Finance, SHE, Asset Maintenance, Document, Quality, Scheduling, Monitoring, Work Order and Stock Control systems.
Historically, this could result in a terminal running over 10+ systems, each being essential to the Terminal operations but likely, each holding their own unique data for handling terminal assets.
Their exportable reports being limited by the data available in each respective system.
With time, duplication of functionality will occur across the varying systems.
Each system requiring licensing, training and hardware to operate.
With 4D lizard we are able to tie into these pre-existing systems allowing us to merge data to produce detailed reports.


Oil and Gas Specific:

Unlike other asset management systems 4D Lizard is designed for the Process industries.
The Advanced 3D Laser solutions group has been automating continuous and batch processes as part of overall project implementation for more than 40 years.
The end user experience gained has been invaluable in understanding the engineering needs of the industry, something that has not always been considered when companies implement their management systems.
The company’s partnership with Lizard Designs has resulted in the development of 4D Lizard, a revolutionary cloud-based software product designed to facilitate the linking of A3D’s 3D technologies to its clients’ management systems.


Collaboration:

Clients wanting to utilise A3D’s 3D process models and smart PID files suffered from a lack of necessary hardware, software and in-house resource skill set.
They wanted open access without restrictions and access via a cloud-based platform became the obvious solution.
A3D’s partnership with Lizard Design introduced a specialisation in custom cloud applications to complement the company’s services.
Not only could Lizard Design upload A3D’s 3D models and PID files into the cloud, it could also transfer the model property data.
This data provides the complete identity for each model component including size, specification, service, materials, rating etc.




4D Lizards Asset Identification Methods


Typical asset management software requires an asset number / code to locate asset details. Asset number is located either from piping and instrumentation diagrams or from visiting site and locating the asset to record its physical asset tag. Traditionally, this raises issues with P&IDs not being up to date and site tags being broken, painted over or indeed lost.
“How much time do you spend locating correct asset number?”
Asset locating should be one of our biggest focuses, not only do we want to speed up the process of locating correct assets code or location, but to reduce the chances of incorrectly identifying asset as a result of human error. Speeding up the process of locating an assets code or physical location, provides the end user more quality time with the set task. Let’s face it, without an asset number you are unable to research anything as your asset management system has no navigation facilities incorporated. And worse, if the asset code cannot be identified, typically people create a new code for the asset, with all prior asset history and data lost!

Asset Number:

It all starts with the Asset or Serial Number, so a search box allows a direct connection to the assets data, location and its history.

Asset Query:

If you don’t know an Assets location or code, Query systems allow you to find an asset via its properties like size, service, spec etc..

3D Models:

Text: Using our unique 3D model cloud interface, you are able to pan, zoom and orbit a model to locate and identify assets, not just via the office but out in the field via tablet or mobile.

2D P&IDs:

Text: The bible document of any process site, piping and Instrumentation Diagrams are a key document, so we wanted the ability to interact with P&IDs in the cloud, our system allows you to pan, zoom to locate and identify assets.

NFC Tags:

Text: Near Field Communication (NFC) tags allows fast identification of assets out in the field, a single tap with a tablet or phone will give you instant access to your assets data and history.
