3D Repo has started development on a unique mobile platform for Crossrail designed to manage maintainable assets. The cloud-based innovation by 3D Repo brings together previously disparate databases and information sources to provide on-site, instant access, to both historical and real-time information. The project is funded under the Crossrail innovation programme, Innovate 18, which is designed to lead innovation in the construction industry.
Working with Crossrail, 3D Repo has demonstrated integration between information already held within asset lifecycle information management software. Through a Crossrail Asset Information and Configuration Management System (AIMS), data matrix ID labels and RFID tags can be scanned using a mobile device to provide real-time access to plant and system diagrams and operation and maintenance (O&M) manuals. 3D Repo’s mobile platform will also let project managers, maintenance personnel and stakeholders access different 3D views of an asset allowing them to select information that is most relevant to them for the purposes of installation, snagging and commissioning, for example.
