Q: Why would I use OCWS?

OCWS is a quick way to set up a new project and to ensure a high production environment quality.

OCWS reduces cost and saves your time:

On OCWS, all project softwares are already pre-installed and totally integrated. Your project set-up phase is significantly reduced to around 2 to 4 weeks. You just need to set-up your account on the OCWS web interface, to configure your Organization and your Digital Asset, with all users, managers and access rights. Also, OCWS reduces the number of IT resources for the creation and non-stop development of IT systems.

OCWS enables flexibility and scalability:

Projects need to grow, shrink, and move. With OCWS, you can manage the Digital Asset accesses for sub-contractors and users entirely as self service.

OCWS accelerate your digitalization thanks to its several services:

ORINOX provides several services that are helping you to accelerate your digitalization: ORINOX WorkSpaces, ORINOX Model Review, ORINOX Dashboard, ORINOX Simulator. Also, on the OCWS platform, you can manage all your cloud environment.

OCWS is safer than any computing server:

Encryption, cyber safety, automatic failover - public cloud’s security efforts exceed any on-premise security. Your data is encrypted while it is in transit and while it is at rest. Moreover, the data sharing on the cloud avoids complex and hazardous handover situation. You can also set highly granular permissions to manage user access within your Organization to specific service operations, data, and resources in OCWS for greater security control. Finally, on OCWS, the project data integrity and availability is ensured, by using servers replication and multiple region backups.

OCWS is available anywhere, at any time, on any device:

The compute power and the graphics processing power come from the data center. You could even run E3D on a windows 10 surface or an iPad, provided your connectivity is good.

OCWS has always up- to-date software:

The software on the OCWS servers is updated by the ORINOX IT team. Consequently, there is no need to stop the people who are working on the project. They get the latest updates overnight.

Q: How can I get started with OCWS?

OCWS refers also to the OCWS website: cloud.orinox.com.

From this website, it is possible to create and manage your OCWS account, and also all your OCWS environment, including your Organization and your Digital Assets, where will be stored your projects. Then, you can also create and manage the accesses of every required users on your projects.

Q: What is an Organization in OCWS?

In OCWS, the Organization level represents an entity linked to a Digital Asset. Each Digital Asset is owned by a single Organization, but members of several different Organizations can be granted access rights to the Digital Assets.

Also, a user can be part of several Organizations.

Q: What is a Digital Asset in OCWS?

In OCWS, a Digital Asset should be considered as the digital twin of a Physical Asset. It means that the content of a Digital Asset should be representative of the content of a Physical Asset. It is not recommended to mix the values of several Physical Assets (such as plants or industrial sites) into the same Digital Asset. This may lead to instability when using the OCWS applications and associated services.

To sum it up, to ensure a proper functioning of the OCWS applications, it is recommended to segregate your projects into as many Digital Assets as you have Physical Asset (plants or industrial sites)..

Q: How can I transfer data to an OCWS Digital Asset?

Even if it is cloud based, OCWS shall be considered as a standard IT network. Therefore the same data transfer methods can be used between OCWS and other networks than the one your organization usually uses to transfer data internally or with suppliers and clients.

Here is a list of some of the possible methods:

  • Files can be uploaded and downloaded directly from the OCWS website
  • The Amazon WorkDocs application can be used via the client installed on your OX Workspace
  • An FTP can be used to transfer data (requires an OX Workspace)
  • Cloud storage services can be used, such as Google Drive or Microsoft DropBox (requires an OX Workspace)
  • A VPN connection can be setup between OCWS and your environment (requires an OX Workspace)

FAQ: ORINOX Simulator


Q: What is ORINOX Simulator?

ORINOX Simulator is based on the Unity gaming technology. The Unity gaming platform is used by thousands of game designers, and millions of users. This ensures that the system is open and adaptable without requiring the help of the vendor.
ORINOX simulator is a modern and ergonomic solution offering a unique way of unlimited creation of scenarios in autonomy which is the strong differentiator of the ORINOX solution compared to other solutions in the market.

The simulator can be used for several different kinds of training:

  • Familiarisation or induction training at the reception of the facility, or before a visitor or operator arrives
  • Emergency response training in a class room environment (based on the official facility response scenarios)
  • Operator/Maintenance training (for the operations staff to train themselves autonomously

The ORINOX simulator enables interactive multi-player training of process plants and facilities directly from a 3D design model – even before the plant has been built.
It is suitable for use on a normal computer, but also for a variety of virtual reality (VR) devices which make the experience more realistic or “immersive”, hence the name.

There are two main modules in the same application: the trainer module (Scenario Editor), and the user module (Scenario Player).
Just like in a game, the simulator can provide different difficulty levels.
For a beginner there is a high degree of hints and help to guide him to a quick successful experience
For the experienced, the hints are minimal, or none.

Q: What information sources can ORINOX Simulator process and display?

3D model in one of the following formats :

  • RVM from PDMS or E3D native format(1)
  • FBX with proper hierarchy(2)
(1) If the PDMS or E3D model contains elements imported from third-party software (SolidWorks for example) it’s possible that these elements slow down the conversion process and reduce the performance of the 3D rendering into ORINOX Simulator solution. In this case it’s possible that the CLIENT needs to recreate these elements in native PDMS/E3D primitives before converting them in ORNOX Simulator format.
(2) It is necessary that the last level of the hierarchy is the one which includes the tags.

Data informations/attributes are injected via XML files. (consult the user manual to know the procedure)
