Reduce Financial Risk
Increase Productivity and Collaboration
Organizations that design, construct, operate, and maintain large plants and facilities are facing growing competition and increased environmental, health, and safety (EHS) oversight.
To help organizations address critical business challenges, the EMC Engineering, Plant, and Facilities Management (EPFM) solution helps 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, construction, operations, renewal, and decommission—individuals and internal and external organizations involved in the various lifecycle phases share significant content and processes. As a result, project owners face critical issues like information loss between project phases that delays completion and increases overall project cost.
In addition, managing multiple—and often custom—systems that aren’t well integrated increases IT costs. The risks and costs associated with EHS noncompliance are unacceptably high. Finally, the potential of a plant’s catastrophic event due to wrong or out-of-date information such as standard operating procedures (SOPs) or as-builts being accessed.
Based on EMC Documentum, our 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 enterprisewide as well as across enterprise boundaries. This streamlines the business processes that rely upon efficient access to engineering content.
The EPFM solution also reduces user training and deployment costs, and enables interoperability between other applications in the maintenance and project scheduling areas.
