EDMS in management of design and operartion documents of power plants

Conventional document management

What will you face if you do not have an EDMS?

In power plants with complicated processes and large size of documents, document control is important to ensure no outdated versions of a document is used and only the final approved version of the document is circulated.

Old and inaccurate versions can cause misunderstanding and effects on design, construction and operation in terms of work performance and cost. These issues can lead to disastrous outcomes. To avoid, DCs (Document Controller) are assigned to check and classify documents into correct uses. However, it can overload DCs’ capacity when the document volume increases.

Document management is important but how can we optimize management, reduce errors and allocate efforts in project performance and progress assurance?

EDMS is developed to create, manage, follow and store technical, correspondence and project documents. Different versions of a document are followed in accordance with changes by authorized personnel in a pre-defined workflow. Data generated and managed in workflows is used to form an enterprise digitalized document management platform so that it can be exported for other helpful purposes.

System application is the way to escape from paperwork which consumes much space and time. It is also a kick-off for the digital transformation which can help enterprises to seek automation in business management.
