avevea wp 2  

Asset operations involve vast quantities of information – data and documents – that continuously evolve. Owner Operators therefore need sophisticated means for managing their information. Engineering Information Management (EIM) concerns the management and use of a plant’s entire information asset to ensure regulatory compliance and efficient, safe operations. Accordingly, the scope of EIM includes:

  • integration, management and handover of engineering information
  • information access and retrieval
  • information security
  • change impact analysis
  • information integrity
  • management of as-operating data
