GlencoIS provides information services recently focussing on Reference Architecture interoperability. That is any communication between people, systems and organizations where unambiguous meaning depends on shared reference to standard information definitions – definitions of terminology but also definitions of interface sets used in context. Services applicable to the systematic engineering integrity of complex assets, including:

  • Lifecycle Information Management – where meaning and lifecycle integrity rely on high-quality information modelling supported by reliable shared reference data within a Reference Architecture. Specific services in:
    • Reference Modelling for the extended enterprise, independent of current tools & technologies.
    • Reference Data content creation & management for all business objects.
    • Configuration management of reference model usage across all business applications & interfaces.
  • Construction Work-Packaging, Completion, Turnover & Handover – the processes by which systematic assets are packaged for optimum construction logistics whilst achieving systematic completions. Completions ready for commissioning & turnover of the asset to the owner-operator, and custody transfer of the living digital twin of information and systems necessary for operations & maintenance as well as future project, turnaround & upgrade lifecycles.
  • Containment Systems Integrity – where decision-making relies on understanding the meaning of process plant systems knowledge, and those business processes by which their integrity is engineered, constructed and risk-managed for life. Examples include:
      Design, stress, materials, welded fabrication and related QC & testing for pressure vessels and piping.
      Piping materials cats & specs for engineering development and as reference data for 2D and 3D tools.
  • Engineering Systems & Project Engineering Management – where execution of energy industry projects relies on systematic multi-discipline engineering & construction, and the software tools, systems & processes by which they are coordinated and delivered to both new and brown-field asset operations.
  • Knowledge Management & Decision Support – where success in communicating and acting upon information relies on understanding trust, intention and context as well as explicit information content.
