Share trusted knowledge for effective decisions
Capital projects in the oil and gas, chemicals, and power industries are complex to design, build and operate. Each stage requires a network of specialists and an incredible amount of data and tools. Isolated information, disconnected applications and siloed organizations prevent efficient information sharing, streamlined workflows and true collaboration. Finding accurate information to make the right decisions at the right time is laborious and inefficient. And when multiple projects are happening simultaneously and over a long period of time, the level of complexity grows. To mitigate project risk, what is needed is a better way to engineer, build, manage and commission capital projects to improve safety, efficiency and sustainability, and eliminate costly delays.
Understand the Keys to Capital Project Success
Why is managing complexity and risk so important? With 58% of projects delivered late, 50% over budget and $2M per day cost of project overruns * it’s critical to improve the management and execution of capital projects. Consider these insights into capital project success.

Digitally transform with a platform approach
Oil and gas, chemical and power companies and their suppliers are rethinking their project management approach and turning toward a strategy of digital transformation to better engineer, build and operate plant facilities. Large projects require real-time information easily accessible anywhere and at any time, along with new ways to organize and execute work. Through a multidisciplinary data-centric approach the 3DEXPERIENCE platform connects every stakeholder across the value chain for more efficient collaboration and provides a single environment to access critical business data for more informed decision-making. A single source of truth avoids miscommunication that could lead to errors, delays, cost overruns and accidents. When EPC, owners, operators and suppliers are all on the same page, it is possible to streamline projects and better organize work to deliver value at every stage of the process.
Break down information silos
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform includes deliverables-based project management to provide a single, consolidated, real-time view of the ecosystem activities. With immediate and accurate information, key decision-makers from executives to field personnel increase productivity and obtain the agility needed for project success. The platform delivers powerful data modelling capabilities, which helps analyze vast amounts of project information. This enables better risk management while providing intuitive, customizable dashboards that deliver actionable insights in a secure and auditable manner. The platform connects deliverables, tasks and resources to enable real-time project assessment and evidence-based analysis for allocating and prioritizing tasks and resources. The result? Streamlined risk analysis, better project execution and optimized project cycle times.
Applying Simulation throughout the lifecycle
The 3DEXPERIENCE Twin provides a virtual representation of the physical assets and engineering systems, enabling simulation, validation and verification of plant design, construction and operations before concrete is poured. With a single, consolidated view of the project, stakeholders can quickly understand the impact of potential changes and ascertain whether deliverables meet the original requirements. The 3DEXPERIENCE Twin greatly improves collaboration and informed decision making while reducing overall project risk.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform gives us a fantastically strong platform to significantly reduce cost and risk of operations in the future.
