Key stakeholders of the chemicals industry
Project engineers often use a tangled web of in-house developed tools, commercial software and spreadsheets to manage their projects. Hexagon’s enterprise project portfolio solutions provide a centralised portfolio and project management environment, seamlessly connecting data between different disciplines, standardising processes across an enterprise and providing clear visibility into the performance of every project in real time.
The success of complex engineering projects requires a connected digital ecosystem, where unstructured information is transformed into smart digital assets that increase efficiency and improve safety while lowering costs and delivering expected business returns.
Asset integrity and process safety fundamentals are critical requirements for chemical manufacturers to maintain their license to operate and ensure safety, security and reliability. As a result, the role of HSE and process safety management is crucial.
Unfortunately, many chemical companies are still using paper, spreadsheets and word processor tools to document and manage the execution of safety-critical industrial processes. This information is scattered in various folders and databases throughout the organisation. Hexagon’s chemical industry solutions reduce operational risk and enable HSE and process safety teams to meet internal and external compliance more effectively.
Maintenance planners often focus on overall maintenance costs, personnel hours and overtime costs. Hexagon’s chemical industry solutions enable maintenance teams to operate in terms of corrective maintenance costs and hours vs. preventive maintenance costs and hours, and condition-based maintenance costs and hours.
These teams can also focus on systematic work order management by looking at planned work vs. unplanned work, reactive work vs. proactive work, work order ageing and work order cycle times. In addition, maintenance planners can collect and decipher data for preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance, overdue work orders and preventive maintenance and predictive maintenance yield.
Hexagon’s chemical industry solutions empower operations managers by providing a valuable, data-driven experience that encapsulates easily consumable, timely information regarding past events, present facts and future predictions. These can seamlessly connect an operations team's safety-critical operational processes, procedures and permits, alarm management methodology, maintenance work orders, real-time and historical process data, engineering schematics and technical documentation with laser scanning data, 3D models and cybersecurity safeguards to enable a robust and comprehensive digital twin for their entire operation.
