Best Documented Plant

Learn more about the Best Documented Plant

Best Documented Plant lets you deliver all required documentation specified by your stakeholders for every asset or piece of equipment under your control.

A blueprint for reducing costs, improving quality, and achieving full proof of control

Do you have all documentation necessary to safely and efficiently run your plant?

How would you find out? And, once you knew what was needed, how would you go about getting it all?

Introducing the “Best Documented Plant”. A Best Documented Plant has all necessary documentation, as specified by departmental stakeholders, for every asset or piece of equipment under control. A Best Documented Plant ensures that, from an asset information management perspective, you have the safest, most productive, and most compliant plant possible.

Two stakeholder examples: Imagine Maintenance going into the field with all the documentation they need to perform their work safely and efficiently, instead of only what they could find. Even better, your CEO pointing to his Best Documented Plant dashboard and saying “I have all compliance information instantly available, and I can demonstrate full proof of control to regulators and auditors at a moment’s notice.”

The Justification

Having inaccurate, incomplete or inaccessible asset information leads to what are known as “Information Incidents”, where faulty information was a major identifiable cause of the problem. According to industry analysts ARC Advisory Group, losses caused by Information Incidents typically amount to 1.5% of annual Sales.

In a plant with sales of $250 million, that means $3.75 million lost every year.

Every asset documented

What does Best Documented Plant provide?

1. A template for creating the standard which ensures that stakeholders have every document they need to perform the best possible work.

Best Documented Plant starts with a key insight: For a given type, category, or piece of equipment a specific set of documentation must be available to meet the needs of stakeholders, including engineering, safety, maintenance, operations and reliability.

BlueCielo consultants use a template and follow a methodology to help you define these standards. The Best Documented Plant template leverages Reference Data Libraries found in ISO 15926 and originally used to specify capital projects deliverables. Best Documented Plant turns this specification inward, to the as-built environment, to define complete asset information for the master data.

Simply stated: When you have complete asset information for every asset under your control, you have a Best Documented Plant.
