The Advanced Project Workflow module enables the management of complex projects and fully supports the Management of Change process of Owner/Operators who need to comply with ever tighter regulations.Project-driven organizations, such as the engineering departments of Owner/Operators or contractors executing projects for them, are faced with projects that are becoming more and more complex, while regulations require full proof of control over processes and design decisions. The BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module simplifies project management, reduces project throughput time, supports regulatory compliance and protects the integrity of your master data.
Owner/Operators are constantly faced with plant changes because of system failures, inefficiencies, regular maintenance, required optimizations, or in order to comply with various applicable regulations. On an annual basis, this adds up to many change projects, ranging from small plant changes up to large capital projects. The starting point of all these projects are master documents which reflect the actual situation on-site. These master documents are used in the change projects as Operations and Maintenance works with the last released version of the asset-related documents.
As so many projects need to be executed on an annual basis, certain documents are required in multiple projects at the same time. BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module supports concurrent projects (as well as concurrent engineering) and notifies users when a document is released as a new version of the master document while a project copy is still under change in a running project.
In addition to configurable document workflows, the Advanced Project Workflow module allows configuration of Project Workflows. The BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module supports workflow interlocks at every level of the Work Break Down structure of a complex project, ensuring that crucial documents at one level are approved before the workflow of a higher project level can advance.
Making maintenance changes to the master documents while they are under change within design projects is easy when using the BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module. Projects that make use of the specific document can be notified that an updated version of the master copy is available, or the changed version is indicated when starting a merge project, reducing errors to practically zero. The use of the BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module ensures full control over the set of master documents, improves the quality of the as-built master data and guarantees compliance to internal procedures and legal regulations.
The BlueCielo Meridian Advanced Project Workflow module provides extensive configurability to allow adaptation to a great variety of business processes without the need for programming or other customization.
The Advanced Project Workflow module greatly enhances the control over project execution and reduction of project throughput time. For example, certain calculations must be available and approved before the design can be approved and parts and assemblies are purchased. When all the documents in a sub-project are approved, the construction phase can begin. For review, interdisciplinary checks on document level and on (sub-) project level are fully supported to meet quality standards and procedures.
- Quick setup of projects according to standards and procedures
- Projects delivered according to project plans
- Reduced project throughput time
- Increased plant safety through fully-controlled as-built documents
- Full proof of control for internal and external audits
