March 2013 Roundtable

Date / Time:

Friday, March 8, 2013 – 11:30 a.m. sign-in & networking with the speaker beginning at NOON ending promptly at 1:00p.m.

Topic:

“Understanding Technology Advancements in Owner-Driven Capital Project Execution and How They Impact You”

Traditionally, during the execution of capital projects, an owner/operator (O/O) receives handover “documents” from their EPC company. Those documents would then need to be entered into their own asset management system and “deciphered” in order to provide the valuable information needed to continue with the operations and maintenance of the facility. Those days are over.

This presentation will examine the dynamics between the O/O & the EPC—focusing on what is important to both groups respectively, introduce the technology advancements that Intergraph has available today, and finally, discuss the benefits to this “data-driven” approach and how it will result in a more efficient project schedule, while simultaneously reducing the risk for capital projects.
