Each department or function can simply access whatever materials data is needed for a specific material-related task, in the format most appropriate to that task.
Engineering data and documentation are essential for effective project delivery and safe, efficient operations. Every person involved in designing, constructing, operating, and maintaining a facility needs ready access to trustworthy information to perform their job effectively. But the truth is, EPCs and owner operators alike struggle to manage large volumes of unstructured, unintelligent information documents, drawings, models, lists, and data sheets which are often duplicated in various folders and databases throughout the organization. Even companies that have implemented a central document management system continually battle against unofficial storage locations that spring up over time. This lack of control leads to duplication, fragmentation, and degradation of information integrity, and sometimes, its outright loss. With SmartPlant Fusion, you can: Rapidly capture, automatically organize, and link documents and information; Compare data and documents with the “as-exists” operational asset using high-definition laser scans; Validate the facility’s as-built configuration at your desktop prior to field verification; Quickly find a certain equipment item (for example, pump P-7701A) everywhere it appears specification sheets, service manuals, drawings, data sheets, P&IDs, purchase orders, invoices, construction plans, etc. Navigate using a 3D model (PDMS, PDS or Hexagon Smart™ 3D), al Navigate using Leica TruView HDS information, enabling you to compare the as-is laser scan model with the as-exists engineering information.
