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.

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.

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 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.

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?

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.
