In an article dated June 14th of 2011, we take a look at a partnership between SOG Óleo e Gás SA and AVEVA, an engineering and information management firm based in the United Kingdom. The article begins to discuss the “implementation” and fusion of updated technology in creating “AVEVA Plant”. The article then discusses what the traditional workflow consisted of, at the time the article was written. In it, it describes the conventional workflow as “expensive rework” involving paper that included “batchwise workflows,” referencing the “link between engineering and construction.”
Next, the article goes in-depth about the new direction SOG Óleo e Gás SA took in “implementing” new technology to the plant through AVEVA. Bringing resources online allowed a more seamless and cost-effective workflow said Mr. Maurício Mendonça Godoy. He also stated that the traditional workflow “demanded” a substantial amount of manpower that resulted in challenges in making modifications when necessary. He then states that updating their workflow to include technology allows his firm to stay competitive. With this partnership, Mr. Godoy envisions an improved, more efficient, and cost-effective solution in streamlining the workflow in the construction of power plants. Other than oil and gas, the article ends by saying that Setal Óleo e Gás SA (SOG) is also involved in the “chemical, petrochemical, and energy” industries.
