Eni’s oil and gas engineering subsidiary, Saipem, has awarded Accenture a contract to deliver a data management solution to support its global onshore engineering projects. Accenture will supply a customized engineering, project and data management (EPDM) solution for work volume and requirement estimation, on site activity planning and project progress monitoring. EPDM automates engineering data flows and supports cross-departmental data use. The solution embeds Oracle’s Primavera P6 enterprise project portfolio management (EPPM) solution and an Oracle database.
Marco Montesano, head of engineering
and construction management information systems with Saipem said, ‘With complex
projects in remote locations, quantity management is one of our most important
challenges.’ Accenture’s Massimo Pagella added, ‘Our experience has shown that
data integration and management is the key to the successful execution of engineering
and construction projects. Data management improves performance in construction
and helps optimize assets throughout their lifecycle.’ A prototype phase will
go live in the third quarter of 2011 before being rolled out internationally
in support of up to 5,000 construction workers. More from
