Plant Data Management
Ensure fast access to plant data for all
employees and avoid redundant maintenance:
The Plant Data Management module provides
invaluable support.
Your Benefits
■ Reliable high-quality data
■ Functions optimally
tailored to requirements
■ Direct usability of the data
■ No changes to existing
identification systems
The Task
Current and reliable information is the basis for
all activities. About 50% of work time are spent
on obtaining and verifying information, with
10-20% of that spent on plant data. Different
departments may need the same basic information, but in different combinations and
requiring different specific additional data.
Such information is frequently kept individually
in various lists. This decentralized, partly redundant data storage requires a great deal of maintenance and is of relatively little value to the
All parts of a plant are captured and described
only once in high quality, giving you an excellent foundation for all work processes associated with technical plant management
without any need for further verification.
In addition, the Plant Data Management module
also serves as a common information base for
a comprehensive technical information system
as well as for any other Plant Management
solutions. The data can thus be used directly
without any need for further transferring,
reformatting or translating. This enables flawless use of existing identification systems (KKS,
AKZ, etc.).
The system is available as a state-of-the-art Web
application and also in a traditional Client/Server

Our Solution
The Plant Data Management offers fast access
to current and reliable plant data from a single
source for all users. A structured description
of the complete plant which takes into account
the requirements of all departments according
to uniform rules in a centralized database provides the basis. These tailored functions considerably reduce the effort for data maintenance
and data capture.

Functional overview
For comprehensive description of the
plant, the Plant Data Management uses
objects, which are described in more
detail below. All objects are uniquely
identified and can be integrated in a
tree structure that graphically shows
the relationships between the objects.
Plant parts
Complex technical plants, such as power
plants, are broken down into so-called
plant items according to functional and
physical aspects: e.g., units and plant
sections, systems and subsystems,
auxiliary equipment and machine sets
or accessories, such as valves and fittings
or drives. The Plant Data Management
allows you to assign them unique
identifiers, classify them and assign
them class-specific design data.
This comprises the products of a manufacturer uniquely identified by their equipment or serial numbers that fulfill a certain
function in the process. The Plant Data
Management module allows them to be
automatically generated for a plant item
or entered manually with class-specific
type data.
Product types (type)
Frequently, a plant uses several products
of the same type. The Plant Data Management module allows you to maintain the
different product types with all relevant
type data in a catalog.

Assured data quality: Upon input, data are checked for format (validity), plausibility and duplicates.
All checks can be adapted to the plant-specific requirements.
Plant structure
The Plant Data Management facilitates
a coarse-to-fine description of all mechanical, electrical and I&C structures of a plant.
It is also possible to create mesh connections between these hierarchical
structures as desired. The hierarchical
structures are graphically shown in a
tree structure, to which you can add
other objects such as documents, work
plans, parts lists. etc. Changes in the
structure are easily made by dragging
and dropping.
Topographic structure/layout
The Plant Management module also allows you to structure the plant according
to topographical aspects by buildings,
floors, rooms, locations, furnishings, etc.
This allows you to describe the arrangement of plant items (set-up, installation,
mounting) in the plant.

Historical information
For evaluation of a plan item or piece of
equipment, the Plant Data Management
allows you to access historical data, such
as malfunctions and faults that have occurred, maintenance measures carried
out, inspection results, logs of operating
and set values as well as location and
time of deployment for that part/piece
of equipment in the plant.
Parts Lists
Parts lists have a number of uses, including forming the basis for determining
the required material when planning
work orders. If necessary, equipment
or product types can be broken down
to the parts level in simple or nested
parts lists with the Plant Data Management module. This is useful for assigning
technical information or defining spare
parts kept in stock, for example.
