Unlocking the value of a progressive approach to Information Management

This webinar is relevant to advancing innovations in the capital projects industry as it supports the Fiatech Productivity Advancement Target for Handover & Asset Operations, which is “Through process improvements – reduce handover costs and schedule by 50%.” It will further highlight how Fiatech and other industry consortia are working to address handover challenges. Finally, we will present how technology solutions enable owners to continuously improve the process of identifying what information they need and use it most effectively to get their asset up and running as quickly as possible.

Webinar Deliverables/Takeaways:
• Understanding of the current state and challenges of Asset Handover
• Recommendations for improvements in the Handover process
• Introduction to Information Management technologies that enable Progressive Handover

Background/Overview of this Webinar Content:
The handover of engineering information from Engineering, Procurement, & Construction (EPC) firms to Owner organizations continues to be a major challenge in the industry. During the design/build phase of major capital projects, volumes of data and documentation—spanning thousands of tags and millions of data records—are generated by EPC's. Owners are faced with the daunting task of searching through this vast amount of information, validating its correctness, and repurposing it for maintenance, risk assessment, compliance, and operations. The current approach to handover, whether paper-based or digital, introduces unnecessary risks, cost, and delays.

AVEVA commissioned a survey of 50 decision-makers at Owner-Operators on their approach and concerns about handover. This session discusses findings from this survey and presents recommendations for improvements and solutions to today's handover process. This will allow engineering information to be handed over in a controlled incremental manner, provide earlier visibility into quality and compliance issues, facilitate collaborative feedback, and enable an easier transition from handover to operations and setup of operational systems. These solutions deliver ROI both in the cost of delivery and the longer-term operational efficiency of the capital asset.
