Portal and Information System
ASB AS-Built - Documentation
PLM information management supports the internal and external information needs for design, construction, assembly, commissioning and operation of a technical plant. In order to publish the information from the DMS system and the PDE database, several ways are realised in PLM. For the offline area, the compression of the database in HTML format through the PLM CHM Generator and the XML.
ASB AS-Built - Portal
The PLM portal is a separate database that maps the as-built status of the PDE objects and documents and shows the relationship between them. The process data is generated in an HTML page and stored in binary form in the database. As the documents are hyperlinked, the links to the HTML pages are established. The representation is realised in a PLM portal.
In this format, all drawings, database information and related documents are embedded. All logical links and the ability to search for any information are retained. A full-text index catalogue enables quick search and navigation in the portal.
ASB AS-Built - CHM Help File
PLM-CHM is a compiler that can put all data of a project or a plant into an offline available, interactive and no longer editable format for seduction. The representation is realised in the internet browser.
The structures, data, documents and HTML pages are merged with the current AS-Built status from the portal database and bound as a CHM Help File; this highly compressed form contains all information and links created in the database. All logical links and the ability to search for any information are preserved. A full-text index catalogue enables quick search and navigation in the CHM Help File.
PCS Planet Control System
The PCS file is the outsourcing module of PLM-PLANET, which consists of a data container including an editor. With this module, data editing is also possible without permanent database access. During editing, status reports are regularly exchanged between PCS-File and the main project via a satellite function. Once editing is complete, the data is checked for consistency and then imported back into the overall model via the PCS file. The data to be transported can include project structures incl. planning instructions such as drawings, lists, specifications, material requirements and calculations.
With the PCS Viewer, all content can be viewed and the links can be followed. With the help of a PCS API, the tool can also be integrated into existing applications. The PCS file is a container in which data, files and rules are stored and processed according to the rules specified in the file. The PCS files receive a unique GUID, this is the identification for participation in the PCS circuit, rights controlled access to all plant information, documents, drawings, maintenance plans, e-mails, tasks, appointment lists, meeting protocols etc. relevant to the user. The satellites are used for information transport, registration procedures and have all the necessary information to register documents, to reserve them and automatically assign document numbers and DOC_ID.
As the PCS file is a self-contained information source, it is very well suited to accompany actions along the document creation process, e.g. engineering, workshop, construction site, etc. The check-in and check-out of engineering data and documents and the digital signature are easy to handle via the PCS file and the portal. Time is saved through faster transfer of changes and requirements in the correction loops between design, development, production and construction site. Document controlling is possible for all parties involved. Since a large number of plug-ins allow special layouts and functions, a very universal use is possible.
PLM WEB Portal
PLM-WEB is a web application that is made available to users via a network (internet, intranet) and runs or is displayed as an application in a web browser at the user's site without PLM-Planet having to be installed on the desktop. PLM-WEB is the solution for global engineering in plant construction and offers Planet users worldwide access to engineering data.
It enables the extension of the user group beyond the actual planners to other user groups such as managers, controllers, project leaders, purchasers, site and maintenance managers, subcontractors and suppliers, regardless of their location, worldwide.
Other highlights are web-based communication and data exchange with suppliers according to defined company specifications and guidelines and worldwide joint project processing and handling for all employees involved and responsible.
