Aveva Engage software for Shell’s engineers

Shell deploys collaborative engineering tool on UHD touch screens.

Aveva’s new Engage software for collaborative decision making across capital projects and operating assets has received a strong endorsement from Shell’s New Orleans business unit. Engage is a touch-driven interface that provides access to information stored in a digital asset, such as that deployed in Shell’s Vantage platform (OITJ V20 N°8).

Aveva Engage is a Windows 8.1 app for large (up to ultra-high definition) touch screens that combines whole model visualization with access to the digital asset repository. Engage accesses data from connected sources and presents information relating to a selected tag. Schematics, equipment drawings, single-line diagrams, instrument loops and more are all available on the device.

Shell’s Robert Samudio, who collaborated on the development of Engage said, ‘Engage’s touch-screen technology and the ability to use 3D models with other disciplines across global locations help Shell’s decision-making and safety. It is changing the way we work and how we deliver our projects.’ Engage was previously named Project Voyager.
