Aconex’ engineering document management for Japex

Cloud based system underpins Soma LNG import terminal construction workflow.

Japan Petroleum Exploration Co. Ltd. (Japex) is to deploy Aconex’ cloud-based engineering document and project management platform during construction of its $500 million Soma LNG import terminal located in Fukushima prefecture, Japan. Aconex centralizes project information and processes on a single, neutral platform in the cloud. Stakeholders all work from current versions of documents. Document workflow and communications between project team members across organizations are visible in real time, reducing errors and rework. The software provides document control and an audit trail of decisions and actions.

Japex’ Wataru Maeda said, ‘We’ve noticed a big boost in efficiency and lower costs. Document searches are fast and easy and we can see when all are on track with their part of the project.’ Localization of the software and documents to Japanese was key to Japex’ adoption. The tool was up and running in one month with minimal training as most all stakeholders were already familiar with Aconex. More from Aconex.
