Support each engineering discipline along the asset lifecycle

Engineers collaborating using a digital twin of a power plant

Complexity is growing in the energy and utilities industry. Within businesses, this is creating data silos and misaligned objectives while reducing collaboration and communication. As a result, most major capital and operational projects are over budget and behind schedule.

Watch our webinar to learn how adopting a systems engineering approach improves connectivity between requirements and data within your asset lifecycle. This creates a single unified digital twin of your entire enterprise. Hear how systems engineering improves process efficiency, drives collaboration and enables data-driven decision-making.

Apply functional requirements software to achieve operational excellence

Poorly-integrated legacy software and subsystems extend project lifecycles, slow project development and reduce business efficiency. With systems engineering, your software systems are designed to seamlessly deliver project and contract requirements using higher quality data. Business information systems are now integrated into a central digital backbone, and important data becomes easy to find.

Functional requirements software improves communication and collaboration, eliminates silos and helps your business react faster to unforeseen circumstances.

Fully traceable digital platform supporting global energy teams

Despite years of effort attempting to integrate project teams and promote collaboration, connectivity and awareness across teams still needs to improve.

With a systems engineering approach, everyone connected to a project knows what is going on. Changes are now tracked, and project teams are supported by optimized systems. Through cross-domain communication and collaboration, energy and utilities businesses can create improved configurations and solve engineering problems faster. Knowledge workers executing a capital project or maintaining complex assets can better respond to challenging situations.

Minimize project impacts with a system integration process

Many experienced energy and utilities workers are nearing retirement, potentially taking with them priceless information about your business. A robust systems integration process provides a traceable environment with a digital record of product and process information.

Regardless of why personnel changes, new talent can quickly become proficient while making data-driven decisions using the latest digital solutions.

Audit project revisions with software change impact analysis

Project requirements and developments change over time. Cope with change and vendor expectations using fully connected data sources. Software change impact analysis can check back to original intent from years earlier via connected artifacts and relationships.
