Meridian Plus

Maintain asset data integrity

Meridian Plus manages your engineering information throughout the entire asset lifecycle.

Meridian Power

Information you can always trust

Meridian Power gives users full control to modify and create engineering information in a controlled project environment. Many departments and stakeholders are involved in the creation, approval and use of documentation. All of them require trustworthy information, even during concurrent change projects. Without accurate documents and drawings, plant managers, on-site maintenance and operational personnel cannot perform their work efficiently and without accidents. They need a system to manage all their engineering information in native or rendered format, like Meridian Power.

Server licenses

Additional server licenses can be used to extend your Meridian solution architecture to include more sites or more users.

Comprehensive Engineering Drawing Management

The Meridian Base Server enables configuration of the capabilities and access rights of the Meridian environment to meet the Drawing & Document Management requirements. The Meridian Base Server License can only be used in combination with Base user licenses. The Meridian Base Server License cannot be extended by the use of any server extension license.

Support for growing organizational needs

The Meridian Enterprise Server enables configuration of the capabilities and access rights of the Meridian environment to meet Engineering Information Management requirements at Standard or Plus level. Meridian Enterprise Server is fully extendable with a selection of add on modules to support organizational growth.

In contrast to the Meridian Base Server license, the Meridian Enterprise Server License allows distribution of the components across multiple Windows servers. However, there may only be one instance of each component assignable to any one server.

When you purchase a Meridian Enterprise Server license the following is included:

  • Meridian EDM Server
    • Advanced Project Workflow

Global availability. Connected engineering.

Meridian Explorer is a web-based solution that enables quick and accurate enterprise-wide availability of technical documentation to a large global viewer community, accessible from the Explorer repository. Meridian Explorer repositories are populated from Meridian vaults and maintained using synchronization jobs.

The Explorer repository resides on the Meridian Enterprise Server or on a dedicated Explorer application server. Optionally multiple Explorer application servers can be configured. The configurator gives full control of which data goes into the repository, allowing mapping of local data in the local language and even with local meta-data to be mapped to the global environment. Globally operating organizations can have multiple local BlueCielo Meridian environments which can all be consolidated into one global engineering data warehouse.

By consolidating your engineering data, you can then configure dashboards and report across the entire data warehouse. Optionally you can also use your own third-party tools like Crystal Reports, Microsoft Reporting Services or Microsoft PowerBI to generate reports and dashboards.

Accurate engineering content in neutral (PDF) format

BlueCielo Publisher is a job-based, server application that automates publishing of 2D and 3D engineering documents and data from and to content management systems, enabling rendition to neutral (PDF) file format within the process. Engineering data (files and metadata) can be sent automatically to other content management systems and optionally convert the files to another format within the process. Properties from the source system can be mapped with the appropriate ones in the target system. All publishing jobs and files handled by the BlueCielo Publisher are logged (either in an MS SQL Server or Oracle database) and, if necessary, notifications are sent to the appropriate persons. Publish jobs can be triggered manually or through workflows, and can be scheduled or sent immediately.

The Publisher can be extended with an Advanced Rendering or Publisher for Microsoft SharePoint license.

Advanced Rendering
Publisher can be extended to include Advanced Rendering to increase the quality of generated PDFs with additional capabilities to meet your regulatory requirements. Advanced rendering options include installation of native applications at the Publisher Application Server, or PDF post-rendition enhancements such as electronic signatures, watermarks, dynamic print stamps or signature pages.

Publisher for Microsoft SharePoint
With Publisher for SharePoint, engineering content managed in BlueCielo Meridian can be made available to non-engineering users in SharePoint. Property mapping ensures that the SharePoint users can search the content by meta-data. Every time a new version of the content is available in Meridian, an updated version will be sent to SharePoint.
