If you have unmanaged information such as outdated, missing or inaccurate documents, you cannot achieve efficiency. Losing control of your documents will cause wasted time in rework and errors in construction.
An Engineering Document Management System provides a unified system in which you can manage your documents and drawings. This provides a central location in which all team members can use automated workflows linked to their own CAD applications.
If all your teams are using different systems, it can be very challenging to share information internally or get alignment on what must be delivered. It becomes even harder when you need to communicate this information to externals teams like contractors – or your clients.
An Engineering Document Management System allows all stakeholders to easily find information they can trust. Consistent numbering and naming conventions makes it easy to search for and find the right document, which can then be shared with confidence to your external stakeholders.
If you cannot find the right document, you will not be able to demonstrate due diligence or authentication standards. If an error goes to court, you will not be able to provide the evidence needed during litigation, and you open yourself up to risk.
With an Engineering Document Management System, you get automated workflows and approval processes. This improves your monitoring abilities, allows errors to be detected earlier and prevents issues that can challenge safety. It also means you have an audit trail you can use prove control.
