What is a CCMS - How it stacks up against other systems

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on Jun 10, 2021 1:23:00 PM

What is a CCMS and why is it different?

A CCMS, or Component Content Management System, holds all operational knowledge and becomes the single source of truth for all operational content your workers need while in the field. A CCMS is different from a traditional Document Management System (DMS) like SharePoint or Google Drive in the way it manages content at a component level, instead of at the document level. This is an important distinction for organizations hoping to improve worker experience while creating efficiencies in authoring, reviewing, and publishing.

How the modern learner can make your workforce more efficient

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on May 20, 2021 11:10:03 AM

Modern leaners are entering a workforce where many organizations are still using antiquated technology and paper-based procedures, which are difficult to use and problematic for your existing field workers. Modern learners expect the technology and content they use at work to be like the technology and content they use at home, and your field workers are beginning to expect the same.


By digitally transforming operations for the modern learner, your entire workforce can benefit from efficiencies, better learning, and safer operations. But who exactly is the modern learner?


Who is the modern learner and what do they expect?

Millennials (and soon Generation Z) are entering the workforce after being accustomed to a world where learning is, and always has been, digital. These modern learners face culture shock when working in the process industries for the first time, possibly experiencing a workplace with outdated tools and frustrating processes.

Cut Costs and Reduce Incidents with a QMS

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on Aug 18, 2020 11:45:00 AM

How You Can Cut Costs and Save Money with a QMS

In a large operation with several assets, procedures, and locations, managing operational content and keeping it updated is a time-sensitive and high-cost process which requires input from management and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs). Content and procedures are typically stored in binders, filing cabinets, and rarely receive feedback from those who are closest to high-risk tasks: field workers.

How workplace incidents can be reduced by improving user experience

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on Jul 28, 2020 12:44:00 PM

The problem for field workers

Procedure-use-culture in most organizations is unhealthy, with many field workers finding procedures confusing or having no way to tell what content is up-to-date, relying instead on knowledge retained while on the job. This alone has the can cause both human error and millions in incident costs for an organization.

Content Reuse: What it is and why your organization needs it

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on Jul 14, 2020 12:36:00 PM

Why do organizations need content reuse?

Content Reuse allows organizations with hordes of procedures, manuals, and training manuals to organize and reuse the contents of these documents in a digital format. This content is typically stored in filing cabinets or binders, is rarely updated, and is unstandardized. By enabling content reuse in your organization, the overall amount of content needed for operations is reduced. Authoring effort is also reduced as authors can reuse the best sections of previously created content to create new content.

The digital triplet to your digital twin: The human side of the operations equation

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on May 26, 2020 12:45:00 PM

The production equation can be boiled down to two key elements: equipment and the people who operate it. Digital transformation of these two key elements has been underway for decades and the evolution for the equipment side of the equation has culminated in the development of the concept of the digital twin. Until now, the human side of the front-line work has typically been underserved as organizations have focused on automation, IIOT, and analytics. Today, some of the most important value realization in increasing safety, reliability, and efficiency comes from enhancements in the standardization and effectiveness of the human performed work within the production equation.

Why effective procedures are essential to your Energy company

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on May 19, 2020 1:00:00 PM

Operating procedures are step-by-step explanations of how to perform a work task, such as starting up or shutting off a piece of equipment. They can also describe how to respond to an incident, perform maintenance, or complete a routine process function in a facility. Most energy companies have some form of operating procedures in place, but the procedures are not always effective.

What makes an effective operating procedure, and why are they important?

The blueprints for Digital Transformation | INFORMATION ARCHITECTURE

By Innovatia Accelerator Inc. on May 12, 2020 1:00:00 PM

Information architecture (IA) has been around since the 1970’s and yet it is still an often neglected or under-valued activity when developing, migrating or implementing a complex system involving a large body of data or content in a corporate environment. We’ve all seen the massive corporate intranets, asset management systems or document repositories that are difficult to navigate and find what we need. These systems lack an effective blueprint for structuring and organizing content – they lack a well thought out information architecture.
