AVEVA announced today the launch of its latest software solution: AVEVA Control of Work. This advanced suite of products enables the highest levels of safety and efficiency to be achieved when planning and performing both routine maintenance and in-plant engineering operations in potentially hazardous plant environments. It comprises best-in-class applications for Risk Assessment, Work Permit Management, Work Activity Plotting, Isolation Planning, Safe Job Analysis and Lessons Learned Reporting.

Jan Edvin Pedersen, Vice President of Enterprise Asset Management, AVEVA, explained some of the advantages of using this new technology: “One of AVEVA Control of Work’s major benefits is its interoperability with a wide range of Enterprise Asset Management solutions, such as SAP, IBM Maximo and AVEVA WorkMate. This open approach provides access to the asset information necessary for effective planning and execution of all types of in-service engineering tasks. Not only can this make such tasks safer, it can also enable better use of resources and downtime, offering excellent return on investment. It is quick and easy to implement which together with its market-leading 2D and 3D visualisation, make it an unrivaled solution for asset operations.”

AVEVA Control of Work provides a clear, current overview of all planned and in-progress work on a facility, enabling operators to plan more effectively and to complete both routine and ad hoc maintenance tasks more efficiently. This results in better use of valuable resources, reduces risks both to personnel and to the facility itself, avoids incidents and minimises costly downtime. Through the provision of these capabilities from the beginning of an asset’s life cycle, it can also accelerate and de-risk a new plant’s transition into operational readiness.

“AVEVA Control of Work is an essential tool for any plant operator looking to work more effectively, reduce operational risks and more easily ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards,” added Edvin Pedersen, AVEVA.
