Powering Digital Transformation in the Energy and Construction Industries

Connecting siloed players & documents to ensure the efficient and safe construction and maintenance of complex projects.

In today’s global Energy and Construction industries, the safety of employees and the environment are paramount during the entire lifecycle of a project. The pressure is on to reduce accidents, errors, and operating costs, all while improving productivity. Digital transformation with SWISS is part of the answer.

With extended supply chains, complex engineering requirements and operations spanning multiple regions, the Energy industry is tailor-made for this transformation. Accenture estimates that “15 percent savings and 20 percent cycle times compression is theirs [Oil and Gas companies] for the taking if they use digital technologies more strategically and holistically to underpin their development programs. Specifically, oil and gas companies can use digital solutions to connect, consolidate, accelerate and automate activities and decisions across the asset development lifecycle.”1

In the construction industry, SWISS helps weave together the traditionally siloed players and documents in the design-build-maintain process by moving all standards, work instructions, shop drawings, and RFPs into a linked data model. Documents as Data provides significant benefits in nearly every stage of the project lifecycle. With SWISS, documents are always linked to their authoritative sources, are change-aware, and are accessed only by permissioned users—all at the concept level. Just try doing that with a PDF!

SWISS connects data silos

The SWISS library already contains critical oil and gas industry standards from ASTM and many other Standards Development Organizations. When you convert your internal content to SWISS, you’ll have a single source of comprehensive, interoperable engineering data.

SWISS and Building Information Management (BIM)

SWISS integrates with major Building Information Management systems (BIMs) and provides a digital thread throughout the lifecycle of a project from design to handover.
