Arora Engineers has reorganized our technology division into one consolidated division, forming our Enterprise Solution Group. This shift will enhance our ability to seamlessly provide our clients with asset data solutions.
The group is led by our Vice President, Steve Bisch, who has over three decades of experience in designing and implementing enterprise asset management systems (EAM), GIS, software development, facilities maintenance, and manufacturing operations management for large organizations.
The mission of Arora’s Enterprise Solutions Group is to provide asset data expertise to our clients. With the help of our team, our clients can generate and leverage the data created during design and construction for more efficient operations and management. We also facilitate the implementation of modern automation technologies, such as virtual reality and Digital Twin technology, through our innovative Data Interoperability (DI) process.
Facilities and their assets start their lives as drawings and building information models developed by designers and recorded by construction engineers. Arora specializes in extracting this geospatial data and converting it into accurate depictions of exterior and interior space, including the location and properties of assets within this space.
This geospatial data is the fabric of a Digital Twin, providing an intuitive interface to all relevant information about the space and assets that comprise the facilities we manage. This data also establishes the identity of those assets, or an asset registry, which becomes the hub for interfaces with other enterprise information systems.
Extracting and transforming this geospatial data and then loading it into asset registry, maintenance management, inspection, Enterprise Resource Planning systems, and digital twins can is a daunting task. To overcome this challenge, we leverage tools such as Safe Software’s Feature Manipulation Engine (FME) – the same technology as Esri’s Data
Interoperability Engine and ArcGIS Geoprocessing Tools – and industry-specific data models and scripts we have developed. We also specialize in establishing data governance, training on the tools we use, and transferring knowledge to our clients so that they can sustain the quality of this data into the future.
Our team works closely with project owners and design and construction teams to establish data, GIS, BIM, and handover specification standards to help bridge the gap between the capital project acquisition process and facilities management. This helps to ensure our clients’ facilities have all of the data needed to run a world-class operation on day one – all while saving millions of dollars over the life of the project and the facility compared to the traditional method.
The result is an owner’s dream: a complete, accurate, and structured set of Location and Asset data, plugged into real-time conditions and performance monitoring representing the facility, supported with a navigable 3D model, to be used for managing the operation and maintenance of the facility.
