Emerging Technologies

One of the biggest challenges for industrial companies is the enormous amount of technology available on the market. Many are attracted by the promising benefits, but often struggle to find their way through the sea of information. Incorporating technologies into sustainable solutions can also be challenging, but it can be done using a sound risk-management approach. In fact, many of the technologies that were considered “emerging” a few years ago are now standard industry practice.

  1. Your challenges

      Think of new technologies as your allies

      You must have reliable and robust operations. That’s why you invest time and money in maintaining them and making sure they continue to develop. So, it’s important to get the most out of new technologies and gain better insight into your operations by using and leveraging your data. This way, you can continuously improve your productivity.

      Another major challenge in technological development is finding qualified workers and lowering health and safety risks. Technology can help you minimize worker exposure to hazardous processes and significantly lower your operational risks, like equipment failures or production losses.

      Improve the value of your data with artificial intelligence (AI)

      AI and machine learning help you perform predictive analysis of your processes so you can react quickly to latent situations. Our team can assist you in organizing your data, defining learning algorithms, designing required infrastructure (cloud and local), and developing and integrating the solution into the operational model.

      Speed up your projects with augmented and virtual reality

      When effectively integrated into the design and operational model, new technologies can reduce costs and speed up project development. This allows our experts to optimize constructability, perform rigorous design reviews, provide training and virtual site visits, and much more.

      Get highly accurate data using drones

      Our teams use drones, agile tools that are easily deployed, to quickly understand ground features and to get to locations that are hard to reach or have health and safety risks. They can also use drones to help support you by incorporating them into your business processes. A few applications: highly accurate imaging, multispectral imaging, photogrammetry and volume calculation, inspection and measurement, and 2D and 3D geo-referenced videos.

      Leverage a digital work environment

      When our experts incorporate digital work environments into their methodology, so-called digital twins, they can use them to add value to your project. This applies both at the design stage and in the longer term, during operations. A few applications: remote plant visits, location training for new employees, health and safety training, predictive analysis, simulation and operational monitoring.

      Optimize your operations with autonomous solutions

      We can assist you in selecting, designing and specifying the required infrastructure and solutions right through to their integration into the operational model. We’ll assess the impact of automating operations to minimize health and safety risks, reduce process variability and increase equipment productivity.

      BBA’s approach to managing risk and generating value quickly

      Our teams understand how important it is to consider every aspect that may influence the implementation of a new solution. They consider operational risk management, integration with existing equipment and processes, cybersecurity, health and safety, and the people involved in adopting the technology.

      Our experts use an iterative methodology to support you in your proof of concept and help you achieve your goals quickly. By generating value at every stage of your project, we help you leverage and progressively improve the technology for broader development. We have viable, scalable and sustainable solutions.
