CAMBRIDGE, UK, and SUNNYVALE, Calif. – AVEVA and Trimble announced this morning an agreement “to provide an efficient integration between Trimble’s 3D laser scanning solutions and AVEVA’s laser scanning software solutions, including the LFM Software suite, for the plant, power and marine industries.” The aim is to allow customers to more quickly get from data capture to actually using the data in their design workflows.
The LFM software has always hung its hat on its ability to work with data generated by any of the leading laser scanners. Its data neutrality was as asset specifically cited when AVEVA purchased the software company from Z+F in the fall of 2011.
AVEVA’s Matt Craig also talked about what LFM was likely to do for AVEVA and interoperability in an interview at SPAR International in April:
Providing the Trimble point of view, David Fitzpatrick, GM at Trimble, added in a press release, “Tightly integrating Trimble’s portfolio of 3D laser scanning solutions with AVEVA and LFM’s laser software portfolios can provide plant customers with an efficient workflow for maximizing the use of 3D data.”
In the release, the companies emphasized their commitment to helping customers with “their brownfield, as-built assets to improve efficiency and extend operational lifecycles.”
