Data handover challenges for manufacturers: the hidden costs to safety and efficiency

4 December 2023, Europe 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm BST | 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm GMT

What are leading chemical, pharmaceutical and oil and gass manufacturing leaders doing to streamline the data handover between engineering and maintenance?

Efficiencies can be found everywhere. But in today’s constantly evolving manufacturing landscape, plant operations leaders need to know where to look. And that’s difficult when different departments are involved in projects, and the relevant engineering documentation for each asset ends up spread across the enterprise. It can lead to project delays, penalties, industrial accidents, and of course, needless expense.

According to Ken Bever's "Problems with Information Handover,” an owner-operator unexpectedly spends an average of 2-4% of the project cost to correct and reproduce missing engineering documentation manually. Imagine $8-16M in hidden data entry and validation costs on a $400M project!

So, how do you achieve efficient data handover? And how can you be confident in the safety of operations, knowing the correct engineering documentation has been provided from the beginning? Join thought leaders from Accruent, along with a group of industry peers, as we discuss strategies to streamline document management, ensure compliance, and enhance collaboration.
