The Digital Facility provides the opportunity for facility information to be shared and reused. Using this common database, multiple people can simultaneously access the facility and share information without stepping out of their offices. Data can be captured once and used by many users for many different purposes.
The ability to share data between co-workers on a given project can be exceptionally valuable. However, even more valuable than collaborating within a discipline, is reusing data across an entire organization. Facility data captured once can be reused for all types of projects and across all disciplines. Data captured for an engineering project can be used for fabrication verification, maintenance, and compliance as well.
There is no activity that touches the facility which cannot gain benefits from access to a Digital Facility:
- Engineering and Design
- Capital Revamp
- Maintenance and Operations
- Emergency Repairs
- Inspection and Compliance
- Hazardous Operations
A regularly maintained Digital Facility database becomes a global resource which enables more informed and more accurate decision making from all parts of the organization.
