Operations and maintenance in the process industries are demanding activities. It is crucial for all owner operators to keep a facility in production and decrease downtime as much as possible. Only then will they ensure that the operating revenue is uninterrupted and financial objectives are met. Proper maintenance extends the lifetime of equipment, helping to reduce capital expenditure as well as environmental risks. Smooth operations and maintenance require highly effective processes.
Intergraph supports owner operators by providing automated work processes and enterprise accessibility throughout the plant life cycle. Controlled and effective management of change reduce the cycle time for changes from proposal to implementation and update of the engineering design basis. Interoperability with maintenance management and other key operational systems means that decisions are based on the latest engineering design information. Navigation between 3D models or photo-realistic laser scans or links from hot-spotted schematic drawings to related vendor documents provide all the information needed to make better decisions quickly and confidently – helping customers to drive continuous improvement through better information accessibility.
