Plant documentation

Plant documentation

Pool all your information in one central location. This allows you to document all stages of your work precisely, optimize service and reduce downtimes.

Too many ongoing projects can be time-consuming

Too many ongoing projects can be time-consuming

Major projects often comprise many smaller units and complex project phases that need to be worked through carefully and efficiently for all kinds of plant documentation across the entire plant life cycle. In the course of the project, documentation has to be prepared and delivered in different states - as-planned, as-built, as-maintained. In addition, documents must  be legally sound, up-to-date and available in different languages.

Maintain your information at a central location

Single-Source: TIM allows you to concentrate on creating high-quality information.

TIM allows you to concentrate on creating high-quality information that can be managed once (single source) in a central database. The information can be clearly identified and is easy to find via classification, versioning and full-text search. Define your project structures in TIM and allocate the appropriate information to your projects. In this way, any project status can be reproduced and archived so that it is legally watertight. Create your documents in accordance with legally sound guidelines, in a structured and modular way. This allows you to generate specific publications any time you want.

You pull all the strings

Plant documentation: update all your documents at the touch of a button

You know at a glance where information is missing and can update all your documents at the touch of a button. TIM knows exactly what languages are available in what status and controls the translation process accordingly. Information that has been translated once is immediately available for all projects.  Make use of state-of-the-art media like videos, animation and 3D models when you hand over the documentation to the operator, ensuring smooth operation and highly efficient service processes. This way, you can reduce downtimes and facilitate maintenance and troubleshooting for your service staff by providing relevant information in the right medium.
