We probably all know the Chinese Whisper Game in which one person whispers a message to another and so on through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Although the objective is to pass around the message without it becoming misheard and altered along the way, part of the fun is that, regardless, this usually ends up happening.
If there would be industry where this loss of information is an intrinsic risk of their business, it would be Energy & Engineering. And when it does, it isn’t part of the fun at all. Most likely it is the start of money being spent to fix errors and compensate customers and partners.
In this multidisciplinary industry, it is key to ensure control and accessibility of the as-built information but also Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). It is key to ensure timely and secure access to current project content and enable fast, effective collaboration across virtual project teams. It is key to control the handover and commissioning of information when transitioning from design/build into operations. And off course, it is also key to streamlines the distribution, review, and approval of transmittals and contract deliverables with your global network of suppliers, vendors, and partners. Altogether it is of utmost importance that all stakeholders have access to the single source of the truth. Access to the right information any time any place.
