The Digital Asset Brings Concrete Benefits AVEVA and WorleyParsons Digital Enterprise collaborate to turn the Digital Asset vision into reality WorleyParsons, a globally recognised full-service EPC, has been a committed AVEVA user since 1998. Sharing AVEVA's philosophy that every physical asset must also have a Digital Asset, the company recently established its Digital Enterprise division to focus on the business opportunity of improving asset operational integrity through the use of technology. Jim Purvis, formerly WorleyParsons' Group Director of Engineering Systems, now joins the leadership team of the Digital Enterprise as Director – Capital Deployment. We spoke to Jim about the exciting times ahead. 'Our relationship with AVEVA has come a long way since we first used AVEVA PDMS for the FEED and detail design of the MLNG III slug catcher project,' began Jim. 'We immediately found it to be an effective tool for the design, weight and structural management of offshore projects. Our usage grew steadily, driven by the organic growth of the company and the increasing complexity of our projects. Today we have hundreds of PDMS users worldwide.' The birth of the Digital Enterprise Supported in part by AVEVA software, now the vision is for WorleyParsons to use its understanding of EPC projects and brownfield asset improvement to provide Digital Asset services for the creation and maintenance of digital plants for their clients. Digital Enterprise draws on its significant experience to deliver real gains in capital and operational efficiency across: - asset deployment - asset management optimisation - technology upgrade and management. The division deploys four phases either singly or in unison across key organisational levers to deliver knowledge and know-how that ensures the digital and physical assets have been created to enable flawless start-up and optimisation across the complete asset life cycle. 'The Digital Enterprise division is our response to growing demand from clients to provide services that support handover of information in a consistent and validated format, both in brownfield as-built and in greenfield project delivery. Once we have delivered that information to the facility, we also help to manage it so as to maximise its value to the client,' Jim explained. (continues) AVEVA World Magazine 2015 | Issue 1 p8
