The EMC Engineering, Plant, And Facilities Management SolutionSource: EMC Corporation
Organizations that design, construct, operate, and maintain large plants and facilities are facing growing competition and increased EHS (Environmental, Health, and Safety) oversight. To help organizations address these critical business challenges, EMC offers the EPFM solution to optimize engineering and construction projects and improve plant operation and maintenance, while ensuring EHS regulatory compliance.
During the six-phase lifecycle of a plant (feasibility, design, construct, operate, renew, and decommission), significant content and processes are shared between individuals and internal and external organizations involved in the various lifecycle phases. As a result, project owners face many critical issues. Information loss between project phases delays completion and increases overall project cost. Managing multiple—and often custom systems that are not well integrated increases IT costs. The risks and costs associated with EHS non-compliance are unacceptably high. And finally, the potential of a plant’s catastrophic event due to wrong or out-of-date information (like SOPs or as-builts) being accessed.
Implementation of the EMC® Documentum® -based Engineering, Plant, and Facilities Management (EPFM) solution reduces the risk of plant shutdown and downtime and ensures successful project completion. It provides secure, efficient access to “as-built” engineering drawings enterprise wide, as well as across enterprise boundaries, streamlining the business processes that rely upon efficient access to engineering content. The solution also reduces user training and deployment costs, and enables interoperability between other applications in the maintenance and project scheduling areas.
