FREE: Introduction to Uptime Elements Reliability Framework and Asset Management System

The vision of RAVE is to enable virtual analysis, training, operational excellence and collaboration across multiple sites. Chevron uses INOVx’s RealityLINx® as one of the key foundations for the RAVE environment. RealityLINx hosts a 3D virtual model of the refinery connected to live operations and maintenance data sources including asset reliability systems, computerized maintenance management (CMM), process historians, laboratory information management systems (LIMS), etc.

During the IDF 2009 conference, INOVx and Chevron demonstrated the benefits of hosting the RAVE solution on servers built with Intel’s Nehelum processor. The exhibit was featured in Intel’s server technologies pavilion.

“We are very pleased to be working with Chevron on this forward looking RAVE initiative,” said George Bauer, VP Marketing at INOVx. “Every time we engage people in the industry with concepts and vision of RAVE, as we are doing at IDF2009, there is a great deal of excitement. It is clear that these ideas are transforming the way the industry approaches operations and maintenance.”
