Digital Capital Project Execution
Large Oil & Gas Operator
Learning from other owner operators, the customer wanted to use intelligent design tools to achieve a digital twin of the facility while overcoming the pitfalls of traditional project execution information handover strategy and processes.
ChallengesGiven the large scale of the capital project and the different EPCs located around the globe, the owner faced a few challenges, including:
• Ensuring standardization and compliance to standards and requirements across multiple EPC’s.
• Maintaining the ability to create a single source of truth for operations and maintenance to use through the lifecycle of the asset.
• Ensuring data consistency and quality assurance.• Enabling design reuse for future projects.
• Cost effectively populating operations and maintenance (O&M) systems (Maximo, SAP, etc.) in time for commissioning and startup.
• Moving away from traditional document handover at project end.
The customer partnered with ReVisionz to establish their digital project execution strategy and implementation of intelligent design tools.
The intelligent design tool execution strategy consisted of centrally hosting and managing the tool environments for all EPC’s, providing common technology solutions while ensuring standardization and compliance to customer standards and requirements.
The tools were also integrated with an asset information management and BI dashboard reporting solution to ensure consistency and quality assurance across design tools and other business systems, including master tag and document registry, document management systems, and more.
By having the EPCs access and use the customer’s centrally hosted and managed intelligent design tools, it provided a single source of truth and significantly streamlined the information handover process and the company’s ability to populate commissioning systems.
It also provided flexibility for the customer as they owned the engineering tool databases, rather than being at the mercy of the EPCs.
The customer was able to reduce costs associated with information handover, as well as master data population by 50%. This project also resulted in improved visibility and access to engineering data used to monitor project progress. The company now has the ability to defend EPC change orders and trends, saving them millions of dollars in the process.
They also implemented a Corporate Material Catalog and consistent materials codes, along with the 3D model integrated with the material management system. This helped reduce restocking costs, project delays for long lead time materials, and secured bulk purchasing discounts for the company.
The company continues to actively use and maintain the intelligent design tools within its operations, maintenance, and on-going OPEX/CAPEX projects. The customer has a Digital Twin of their operating assets and continues to benefit from their investment in digital project execution by leveraging intelligent design tools.
