AVEVA's acquisition, in July 2010, of all assets related to the oil & gas business of ADB Systemer AS included the WorkMate and Tech Info Manager (TIM) products, as well as a very talented team of industry professionals. This addition to AVEVA's portfolio was specifically designed to extend the product and service offering for Owner Operators in the oil & gas industry. The WorkMate and TIM applications, in combination with the AVEVA NET Digital Information Hub and our design applications, create a comprehensive solution that addresses both project performance and asset performance requirements across the entire facility lifecycle.AVEVA's Operations Integrity Management solution for Owner Operators is a suite of integrated applications for information management, management of change (MOC) and maintenance operations. With industry-leading engineering and 3D design applications playing a key role in the overall strategy, AVEVA now offers Owner Operators the ability to construct an accurate digital asset infrastructure in order to efficiently manage their complex physical assets. We are helping Owner Operators enhance asset utilisation and performance, while reducing both capital and operating costs, and improving Return on Asset (ROA) through extended facility life.Acquisition Update:Operations Integrity Management with WorkMate and TIMProject PerformanceA fundamental principle of the Operations Integrity Management strategy for Owner Operators is the ability to work effectively with Engineering Contractors from the beginning of projects, during construction, and throughout handover and commissioning. The AVEVA NET information hub lies at the centre of a highly collaborative and interactive digital asset that enables the transparent sharing of information across application and technology formats. The information hub makes it possible for Owner Operators to accurately monitor the Project Performance of major capital projects and employ a continuous handover and commissioning process that can dramatically improve project efficiency and information quality, saving time and money.Asset PerformanceThe second half of the Operations Integrity Management strategy for Owner Operators provides the ability to manage asset performance over the life of a facility. The new TIM and WorkMate products provide the workflow and MOC capability essential for the long-term operation of a major asset. The AVEVA NET information hub continues to serve as thecentral conduit for the validation and sharing of information that is passed between AVEVA and third-party applications to address critical operational activities including operational readiness, maintenance and reliability, in-plant engineering, HSE and compliance. All project stakeholders are able to access the trusted information in the information hub for navigation, contextualisation and visualisation of 2D drawings, 3D models and documents without the need for source authoring application licenses, providing significant cost savings.Unlike some of our competitors' products, the AVEVA Operations Integrity Management solution for Owner Operators is a highly flexible infrastructure that does not demand a rigid deployment process using only applications from a single vendor. AVEVA has developed a very open architecture that allows Owner Operators to deploy the Digital Information Hub using applications of their choice, in a timetable that makes sense for their business. This flexible and highly effective approach reflects the reality of complex business operations for Owner Operators. They need an information solution that can be adapted incrementally, selecting new technology as needed and integrating existing applications without disrupting business or asset operations. The new AVEVA Operations Integrity Management solution draws on decades of field experience, and incorporates world-class applications and services with a Digital Information Hub that is second to none in the industry.Strengths of the Digital Information Hubz A centralised, secure store of information and its associated relationshipsz A resource to control information standards, access, and modification z A user-friendly environment for collaboration, search, 2D and 3D visualisation and contextualisationz A management tool for modelling business processesz A single source of trusted information for AVEVA applications and third-party productsz An information-centric architecture that supports consistent, accurate and dynamic reportingBenefits of the Digital Information Hubz Quality - Reduce rework caused by inaccurate informationz Validation - Resolve information inconsistencies and gapsz Time - Reduce time to production startupz Cost - Reduce the cost of ongoing operations, unplanned rework and downtimez Risk - Mitigate operational and safety risks through improved decision supportThe AVEVA Digital Information HubAVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 119

At the same time as the ADB Systemer AS acquisition, AVEVA also acquired the MARS business from Logimatic Holding A/S. The suite of MARS applications provides the marine industry's most complete solutions for planning, materials and production. Unlike more generic ERP systems, the AVEVA MARS applications were designed specifically for the needs of the shipyard and represent an ideal complement to the AVEVA Marine 3D design and engineering applications. The addition of the new AVEVA MARS products allows AVEVA to offer our marine and offshore customers an integrated shipbuilding solution that combines the disciplines of planning, logistics, materials and production with design and engineering under a single AVEVA NET Digital Information Hub.The greatest strength of the AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding solution is the wide range of shipyard disciplines that are addressed under one collaborative information management framework. This strategy acts to ensure that shipyards have the information, material and resources they need to make the right decisions at the right time. The timely availability of accurate project, material and production information has been shown to significantly improve productivity and profitability, reducing overall production cost and project build time.AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding supports design development at all stages of the production process and across all technical disciplines. A successful shipyard understands and coordinates the needs of different business operations and their evolving responsibilities, which begin with an initial proposal and continue until vessel commissioning. To capture the competing needs and interests of different groups within the shipyard, AVEVA divides the ship construction process into nine key business operations, and our solution examines the unique operational requirements of each, and their impact on the overall process.Acquisition Update:Integrated Shipbuilding with AVEVA MARS'The greatest strength of the AVEVA Integrated Shipbuilding solution is the wide range of shipyard disciplines that are addressed under one collaborative information management framework...'20AVEVA World Magazine 2011|Issue 1
