OCS has acknowledged that Digital Technology will be the way in which future inspections and maintenance activities will be conducted due to their increased efficiency and cost reduction. By doing so OCS has introduced the first standardized approach to inspections aiding in better analysis and data analysis so that recurring problems can be identified and company or asset maintenance strategies improved.
Project Trac – Project Management and Commissioning Software
This software is a complete project management system that is designed to better plan projects and supply critical information for management and supervisors to ensure the project schedule is maintained.
The software can see what issues are causing delays and what needs to be conducted to have them resolved. The system has several tools that supply analytical information that alerts of problems and informs how many activities are needed daily to maintain schedule.
Project Trac identifies every single task that is required, broken down to a single cable installation and testing. This detail defines the work-scope into known packages. This is currently not possible with existing systems and project schedule programs like Microsoft Project or Primavera. With this amount of detail every single work package is identified and system requirements are known.
Project Trac managers the following processes:
- Electrical – cable installation, testing, equipment inspection & testing
- Instrumentation – installation, testing, equipment Inspection & testing
- Mechanical and Electrical Completion – Check sheets, tracking, status
- Commissioning – Procedure status, tracking
- Punch List Management
- Compartment Closeout
- Subsystem, system status and full reports
- Isolation and Permits
This enables section leads to look across divisions to see what is holding up their start dates, dependencies, and any problems can then be brought to the projects manager’s attention.
All outstanding work for a system, or a division or the whole project can be viewed at the press of a button and see what items have to be completed or are holding up the completion of a system or project.
