AVEVA Digital Information Hub extended

White paper describes WorkMate and Technical Integrity Manager functional integration.

A white paper from Aveva, ‘Information integrity management for oil and gas owner operators1’ describes how the recently acquired WorkMate and Technical Integrity Manager (TIM) have extended Aveva’s Digital Information Hub with what is claimed as a ‘comprehensive strategy’ for operations integrity management. TIM and WorkMate add functionality for change management, data validation, maintenance and procurement.

The 15 page document also provides a good ‘problem statement’ of the ‘operational realities surrounding the handover of the ‘digital asset.’ Multiple suppliers around the globe working with information from diverse systems make for a complex environment. Processes and data standards are ‘local’ to a supplier, rather than ‘global’ to the project. The ‘commercial motivations’ of stakeholders differ. Information handover standards are part of the solution but few tools can aggregate and validate supplier information with the IHS. Enter Aveva’s information centric approach to engineering requirements a.k.a. the Aveva Net ‘digital information hub.’ This exposes handover data issues at the tags and attributes level, rather than at the document level. The digital hub’s open interface is said to meet the ‘latest’ ISO standards. More from www.oilit.com/links/1103_14.
