s o lu t i o n ov e r v i e w EMC Engineering, Plant, and Facilities Management (EPFM) Solution Lower project risk, improve collaboration, and ensure EHS complianceThe Big Picture Organizations that design, construct, operate and maintain large plants and facilities are facing• Accelerate project execution by growing competition and increased EHS (environmental, health, and safety) oversight. To help them optimizing critical business processes address these critical business challenges, EMC offers a series of EPFM solutions to improve plant with EMC Documentum operation and maintenance, while ensuring EHS regulatory compliance.• Reduce unplanned plant downtime by delivering the right content faster During the six phases on the lifecycle of a plant (feasibility, design, construct, operate, renew, and decommission), significant content and processes are shared between individuals and internal and• Improve the plant handover process by securely managing key project data external organizations. As a result, project owners face several critical issues. Information is often lost between project phases, which delays completion and increases overall project cost. The lack• Lower the risk of EHS non-compliance by improving collaboration inside and of integration between custom-built systems drives up IT costs. And the risks and costs of non- outside the firewall compliance with EHS regulations are unacceptably high.• Optimize the plant maintenance process with enterprise content management (ECM) Implementation of the EMC® Documentum®-based Engineering, Plant, and Facilities Management and maintenance systems integration (EPFM) solution ensures compliance with industry regulations to reduce the risk of plant shutdown and downtime, The solution provides secure, efficient access to ”as built” engineering drawings enterprise-wide, as well as across enterprise boundaries, streamlining business processes that rely upon efficient access to engineering content. The solution also reduces user training and deployment costs and enables interoperability between applications. Guiding principles Three key guiding principles were used to develop the EPFM solution: Industry standards The solution follows industry best practices, metadata, and standards, accelerating time-to-value and improving the ROI timeline. Business readiness Focused on configuration instead of customization, the solution is business-ready and can be easily adapted to the changing needs of the project owner. Interoperability With a standard architecture, the solution ensures interoperability between the various applications, resulting in lower TCO (total cost of ownership) and a true enterprise-level system. A solid foundation—Documentum With a single platform, Documentum enables you to collaboratively create, manage, deliver, and archive the content that drives business operations. The Documentum platform makes it possible to distribute all of this content across internal and external systems, applications, and user communities. The EPFM solution is a best-practice implementation of Documentum, greatly simplifying the complexities of content management. The solution follows a service-oriented architecture (SOA) and has been designed for rapid deployment and easy adoption.
