A Utility Company in New Mexico Used the Power and Flexibility of Viewport to Unlock Asset Information Quickly
Over many years, huge amounts of asset documentation had accumulated at the power station in Farmington. Due to the use of many systems, the company decided to seek a solution that would provide a single source of truth for all critical asset documentation. It needed to be an easy to use cost-effective solution that would allow users to get to the information they needed quicker.
Though it was not yet fully populated, the Viewport implementation at the company was put to
action to reduce the risk of an incident at the facility. As they were added to Viewport, drawings and documents came to life with a rich mix of information available in a logical and intuitive interface. Relations that were once hidden or unknown are now exposed so end users can see how asset information connects, allowing for informed decisions to be taken quickly. Viewport is a state-of-the-art, browser-based application in which users can easily search and quickly
find all content related to an asset. There is no need to try and figure out in advance where the information is stored. Viewport automatically gathers information that may be stored on file systems, other document management applications, maintenance systems, and other sources and presents all this information in a single interface that is simple to use.
- Viewport offers a simple, lightweight web interface that makes it easy for anyone to find and
access all kinds of information—on any device.
- There is no need to try and work out in advance where the information is stored. Viewport
automatically consolidates information that can come from multiple sources.
- Users can navigate complex connections by simply pointing-and-clicking. For example, it is easy
to search and retrieve documents such as P&IDs, loop diagrams, procedures, and operating manuals. Viewport quickly analyzes each document and automatically finds tags or document references.
