Traceability and due-date follow-up

By | Innovation | No Comments

To ensure complete traceability, each version of a document has to be tracked. A document includes data, attached files, reviews/comments, approvals and distribution flows. Checking this tracking and comparing versions make the document changes easier to understand.
In an engineering project, due-dates and answer time are often contractual. If not observed, penalties can apply.

Discover the principles of electronic data management and the importance of organising documentary materials

Principles of electronic data management: document, file or documentary information
Documentary record is one of the central elements to fully understand what an Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) is. One of the goals of an EDMS is to organise documentary material. Thus, being able to file information in “smart” trees adapted to the company is essential.

How to generalise implementation processes in engineering projects

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

In engineering and construction projects, it cannot be denied that formal processes whether they are IT or not have several advantages. They allow frame exchanges as well as putting in place and following critical procedures. With hindsight, they encourage companies to formalise their business processes management. Thus it generally makes them more efficient and willing to share their good management practises.

BIM PLM: How are they complementary?

BIM and PLM: a strong complementarity

By | Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) | No Comments

When we launched our offer combining BIM and PLM that was dedicated to the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) sector, we wrote an article to underline the complementarity between BIM and PLM. This article and more precisely the complementarity is still valid. In fact, the recurrent questions and exchanges that we have with many actors of the AEC are the best confirmation of it! More and more companies of this sector realise that BIM alone is not enough to ensure an efficient collaboration and management of the project.

Engineering and Risk Management

By | Methods in Engineering | No Comments

The fields of engineering and construction have always been linked with risk assessment. Nonetheless, risk management is becoming more and more important for both success of projects and companies’ profitability. Indeed, due to technological innovations as well as the increasing complexity of equipment, the appearance of new standards and regulations to follow, the number of potential sources of risks is increasing.

Manage document workflow: a solution to be more competitive

Manage document workflow

By | Document control and AEC jobs | No Comments

Projects involve an increasing number of internal and external participants, resulting in more complex data. Engineering projects have a growing requirement for traceability, also increasing the amount of data to be managed. This is not only about documents anymore but also about lifecycles, workflow, approval processes, changes etc. Managing documents has grown beyond the simple use of EDMS.

Considering these new uses, typical software solutions reached their limits. For instance standard EDMS is usually not able to efficiently manage automated documentation transfer, plans, on-time delivery or responsibilities in case of an accident. As these issues are essential in an engineering project, companies must find better ways for participants to collaborate and organize information.
