Since 2008 we work around the world for small, medium and large companies, start-ups, agencies and government entities.
We provide a creative, technological and humanistic vision to transform communication strategies and needs into visual tools for dialogue with users.
Prototyping: experience a car or a plane before it exists to improve its design and ergonomy.
Training: a wide range of training can be improved through VR, from surgeons’ gestures to maintenance or safety training.
Therapy: VR is an incredible tool for therapists to cure patients through exposure therapy.
Architecture: live and feel your project from inside as if it already exists. We want to help you focus on your applications to create better and more immersive experiences by providing you with powerful and easy-to-use tools.
Owner Operators - an industry recognized standard would reduce the effort required to specify and communicate the information requirements to the supply chain leading to lower costs. It will also become more advantageous to move from company standards with high cost of maintenance to international ISO standards. Also the cost of mapping the handover information to the current systems of operation, engineering and maintenance will be reduced.
Contractors - a consistent approach to information handover requirements from Owner Operators would allow Contractors to integrate the information requirements into their corporate business processes and systems resulting in more efficient delivery and improved quality of the information. Currently Contractors are issued different requirements for each project or are expected to propose what should be delivered and how.
Equipment Suppliers - similarly to Contractors, a standard definition of information requirements would provide suppliers with a consistent view of requirements enabling the information to be generated once and reused.
Software Vendors - a clear definition of the core information requirements would provide clarity in the functionality needed by the industry in the tools that the develop.

Benefits of being a Talent Swarm Partner and Collaborator
Industry 4.0 and BIM are inherently about shared standards and collaboration. It is unlikely and not advisable that only one company supply all the elements of the new technology that will make the 4th Industrial Revolution possible. This is why Talent Swarm’s business model is based upon bringing together the “best of breed” in the various areas that are needed to create a truly world-class solution. Customers need guidance to avoid the pitfalls of improper application of advanced technology, and the collective knowledge and experience of the Talent Swarm partners help reap the best rewards for their proactive approach to digitalization.
Collaboration takes more courage than competition, but the rewards are much greater…!

Questions and answers
Most of us are still alive today thanks to the flight simulators used by pilots to practice and improve their skills in routine and extreme conditions. Yet we live close to complex and potentially dangerous industrial and energy plants designed and built decades ago. A Digital Twin is a virtual copy of an industrial plant that allows its owner/operators, just like a cockpit simulator, to monitor it in an intuitive visual manner in real time. This leads to greater efficiency and safety in operation, integration with maintenance software to avoid unscheduled shutdowns and the collaborative immersive environment provided by Talent Swarm allows companies to pool the knowledge and experience of their global employees to solve complex issues faster and save best practices for training.

If the industrial or energy plant is under construction or brand new, the 3D CAD drawings may be converted to create an initial Digital Twin. In plants that have been operating for a while, and may have been extensively modified from the original “As Built” plans, laser scans of the plant are performed that create “point clouds” of millions of precise 3D measurements, which are later converted to exact 3D CAD models.
As with all equipment inventories, one must document in detail everything in the plant.
Talent Swarm provides a precise grid plan that simplifies this procedure so that one done, it is saved forever. This step geolocates all the equipment so that Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS) integrated with Talent Swarm may direct workers precisely to the necessary repair areas.
Al igual que todos los inventarios de equipos, uno deberá documentar en detalle todo lo que contiene la planta.
Talent Swarm proporciona una cuádricula precisa que simplifica este proceso para que una vez hecho, se guarda para siempre. Este paso geolocaliza todos los equipos para que los Sistemas de Gestión de Mantenimiento (CMMS en inglés) integrados con Talent Swarm puedan dirigir con precisión a los trabajadores a las zonas de reparaciones necesarias.
Scanning a complex industrial facility takes about 1 8-hour day per 1000 square meters on site, with at office processing and modelling of the resulting point cloud between 3 and 7 days per day of scanning, depending on the complexity and density of equipment in the environment.
The first step of scanning and modelling an industrial facility can cost between 4 and 15 euros per square meter, plus travel and lodging costs for a team of 3 people during the scanning process.
After scanning and 3D CAD modelling of the plant, the next steps may include:
1. Inventory and geolocation of all the equipment in the plant using grid maps.
2. Installation of fast WiFi Mesh coverage in the plant to perform Telepresence and remote assistance operations.
3. Documentation of maintenance, supplier and costs for the inventoried equipment, including serial numbers.
4. Connection and integration with computerized maintenance systems and SCADA signals.
5. Connection and integration with ERP, purchasing and logistics departments.
6. Documentation of Process & Instrumentation (P&ID) diagrams to collect process, flow and control information.
7. Integration with industrial automation programming, historical operation archives and mathematical simulation programs to anticipate complex operation of the plant.
Talent Swarm firmly believes that all data should completely belong to the customer, forever and that the data should be saved in international, non-propietary standards. This is not the case with all suppliers of Digital Twin creation.
