SmartShape: Shaping the Future Work Environment

Today’s industrial world challenges

The modern industry faces a mountain of complex data. Interpreting this information to make informed decisions can prove to be a major challenge. This is where SmartShape comes in. It is a digital twin software solution that aims to simplify industrial data and make it accessible and understandable.

SmartShape: A Revolution in Data Visualization

The innovation of SmartShape is based on the fusion of shapes (2D mock-ups, 2D plans, photogrammetry…), business data (spreadsheets, APIs, sensors, ERP, PLM, MES…) and code (processes, instrumentation, data mining, machine learning, AI). All of this is orchestrated in a collaborative environment, available online and offline, in real-time and responsive. The goal is to enhance existing data without changing tools.

SmartShape is compatible with all CAD software and all data sources or models. Moreover, the application is universal, available on web browsers, tablets, or smartphones.

SmartShape: a solution to combat digital duplicates

One of the main advantages of SmartShape is its ability to combat digital duplicates which lead to fragmentation of dead data and sequential silos. SmartShape provides a single source of truth by creating a digital twin that centralizes all information. For more information on digital twins, check out this post on our blog.

Sovereignty and Security with SmartShape.

Security and sovereignty are two major concerns for SmartShape. The software and data are hosted on dedicated servers provided by the clients, isolated from the internet, and with military-grade security. For more information about our security approach, please refer to our technical documentation.

Concrete examples of SmartShape application.

  1. Chantiers de l’Atlantique: SmartShape has enabled the replacement of 2D paper blueprints with a collaborative 3D digital twin. For more details, please refer to this article.
  2. Suez: The Suez company used SmartShape to create a digital twin of its sewer network using photogrammetry, thereby reducing the time technicians spend in a hazardous environment.
  3. Bureau Veritas: SmartShape assisted Bureau Veritas in replacing 2D PDF blueprints with a collaborative 4D digital twin connected to a comment management platform.
