Nextspace Extractors – data from across your organisation

The data you need to make careful decisions about your business already exists – our suite of Plug-ins connectors make it possible to efficiently access and interpret it. 

The tools collect and transfer large amounts of data from disparate sources. They then add intelligence in the form of metadata to make sure it’s as useful to you as possible. 

For engineering design systems for ships and offshore platforms, we use open, industry-standard ISO 15926 model definition for data exchange. The Extractors are compatible with design systems, such as Intergraph SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant P&ID, PDS and Aveva PDMS. 

We also share Building Information Models between different software products via the IFC ISO 16739 model definition standard. 

For GIS and related solutions we draw from a range of custom Safesoft FME workbenches to collect relational and spatial information from multiple sources.

The data you need to make careful decisions about your business already exists – our suite of data extractors for plant and process and marine industries is powered by our XMpLant product suite to make it possible to efficiently access and interpret all your CAD data and information and create a fully compliant ISO 15926 or IFC data repository

XMpLant is a data interchange tool with interfaces to the major process plant design systems.

XMpLant provides access to full and intelligent process plant information in an open, neutral form (ISO 15926). It supports the full structure, attributes, and geometry of schematics
and 3D models.

XMpLant provides an interoperability mechanism between the major process plant systems (SmartPlant 3D, PDS, and P&ID; Bentley Autoplant, AVEVA PDMS) and many more.

XMpLant converts unstructured and ‘dumb’ data into intelligent asset information that may be managed for value through the design, build and operate lifecycle. XMpLant also facilitates data conversion between standards such as ISO 15926 and Building Information Models via the IFC ISO 16739 standard.

XMpLant is recognized as a leader in standards based interoperability and has been adopted by the major vendors of process plant design systems and the XMpLant Schemas have been published by Fiatech and PCA (The POSC Caesar Association) as defining Dictionary compliance.
