How Huntsman uses BlueCielo solutions
Huntsman selected BlueCielo Meridian, a powerful Engineering Information Management (EIM) solution that supports best practice in the process industry. More than 200 engineers in multiple locations at Huntsman work with BlueCielo Meridian on a daily basis. The system manages over 200,000 documents that are readily available to maintenance engineers, contractors and CAD designers. This has resulted in rapid response times in finding, accessing and changing drawings when plant modifications are needed. BlueCielo Meridian is also used to control the document workflow between Huntsman’s engineering department and outside contractors.
