Aveva, a provider of engineering design and information management products for the plant, power and marine industries, has released Aveva Net Portal 4.5, which features a configurable user interface.

The user interface is designed specifically to improve the accessibility of objects and documents used in complex engineering projects and throughout the long-term operation of such assets.

It allows both plant and marine companies to monitor and improve the quality of their engineering information in order to make earlier, better-informed decisions that save time, cut cost and reduce project and operational risk.

Aveva Net Portal 4.5 uses the company’s object-based technology to link related project and asset documents and information in a single comprehensive view.

It automatically identifies and indexes the relationships between objects and their associated documents such as schematics, 3D models, equipment specifications, project schedules, maintenance records and vendor catalogues.

The new user interface allows for the creation and configuration of multiple ‘dashboards’ to suit different roles within the organisation.

This ensures that system users are given only the information they need to efficiently perform their particular tasks.

The new portal is delivered with a complete set of standard reports that monitor the accuracy and completeness of project information.

Both project and information managers can assess the state of their projects’ data landscapes, identify the level of tag completeness and track project trends.

Inconsistent data standards and potential data integrity issues are reported and poor performers in the supply chain can be identified.

These reports are said to help companies to improve their overall performance by providing quantifiable statistics that eliminate project guesswork and enable more accurate business performance measurements.

Simon Bennett, Aveva Net product strategy manager, said: ‘Being able to capture in a single view all of the related information on tags and objects and to dynamically identify incomplete or inconsistent information is enormously beneficial.

‘The new interface will help our customers to unlock the complex interdependencies of their engineering information.

‘With Aveva Net Portal 4.5, you can much more easily pinpoint problems and make business or design decisions much earlier in a project, when changes are less costly and disruptive to schedules.

‘The ability to customise the interface for different project and operational roles enables the right information to be provided to the right people at the right time,’ he added.
