McLaren Software has just announced Enterprise Engineer for Assets (EEA), a ‘controlled library’ of officially sanctioned engineering documents and drawings, including ‘as-built’ drawings, HSE documents, standard operating procedures and related content and correspondence.
The EEA acts as an ‘asset information vault,’ helping owner operators and engineering prime contractors standardize key engineering processes and reduce the risk of non-compliance lost production. The EEA targets engineering document management of refineries, oil rigs and power plants inter alia.
Paul Muir, CEO of McLaren Software said, ‘During their lifespan, assets are renovated, reconfigured, or decommissioned to meet everything from changing business demands to regulatory requirements. EEA aggregates and manages engineering content associated with these ever-changing circumstances, providing engineering professionals with reliable, secure access to crucial project documents anytime, anywhere.’
Muir continued, ‘EEA bridges the gap between engineering and maintenance by becoming the trusted source for all engineering content.’ EAA integrates common maintenance applications including MRO’s Maximo and SAP.
Entitlement control lets owner-operators standardize third party access to plant information in what is claimed to be the industry’s only fully auditable mechanism for sharing plant information with external vendors and contractors. EEA works atop both EMC Documentum and FileNet P8. McLaren also recently announced integration of its Enterprise Engineer flagship with Autodesk’s AutoCAD P&ID* 2007 package.
