Engineering Document Management for Utilities

Why you need strong Drawings Management

The Challenges

There is an increasing demand for effective Engineering Document Management (EDM) and Drawing Management, primarily due to the increasing volume of new engineering documents and drawings.

Is your current infrastructure coping?

Are you keeping up with document compliance checks?

If your disconnected system is not specifically designed for EDM and drawings management, your resources may be overwhelmed.

The benefits of an efficient platform

  • Quickly access drawings and related engineering documents (which is especially critical in emergency situations)

  • Grant all team members and external contractors the right level of access to documents and drawings, while protecting your master documents

  • Give team members peace of mind in knowing that the version they are working on is always the correct, latest version

  • Optimize plant performance by expediting the achievement of deliverables and reducing labor spent sorting out document and drawings questions

  • Prepare for inspections more easily

Let us show you the ROI of a world-class system—our Meridian platform. We invite you to read our downloadable eBook:

Join us to learn more about how SA Water manages more than $13 billion of assets to deliver water and wastewater services to more than 1.7 million people across South Australia. Engineering drawings are at the core of managing these assets, with more than 300,000 drawings accessed and maintained in the operation of the organisation.

The Engineering Drawing Management System (EDMS) manages As Constructed information in two formats – the (computer aided design) CAD file allows controlled drawing modification and an automatically-generated or submitted PDF functions as an authorised record of a snapshot in time. The PDF is readily distributable and easily accessible on the mobile devices used by field staff.

The requirements for a new EDMS included the ability to link to assets in Maximo, to enable searching by asset. Challenges included the storage of documents on Windows shares, a history of focusing on PDF renditions rather than native drawings, data consistency, and a need for clarity around compliance, document ownership and duplication.
