Ides Consulting, your resuorce when informations handling is to be developed.
Too many people are sitting in a digital landscape where the content is not searchable for those, who were not there from the beginning.Ides consulting has been involved in structuring customers’ both plant information and business-critical information over the past 3 decades. With this, we have acquired an invaluable knowledge bank that we are more than happy to share.
Informations structuring, InformationObjects
Information object is an object that is freely available to structure information on. Information object can be a structural element or a real object that carries data.
We take a few examples:
We have created a few different business structures where we want to enter all the CVs for the staff. These are located as documents and we structure in a logical way, i.e. the business departments, which are all information objects and form a path to the documents.
Another searchway can be built with other information objects structured according to the organization’s locations and type of education, i.e. university engineers.
The documents are the same and each audit is handled and the last node that carries the document is the information object, i.e. person who contains with data such as name, home address, telephone number, photo.
The documents and the information object are included in different structures to support different searches.
Our consulting organization has helped various companies to structure their information. The customer register contains product companies that build product structures and safety regulations, but also companies that work with plant management.
Let us help you too.
Documents are produced in large quantities for various reasons. Documents usually contain, if you are lucky, a table of contents. But is there a table of contents of all the documents we have produced, one might ask. No, what would it look like is a quick answer…. But if you think about it, it would be smart with some type of “index” so we know approximately where to start looking on the day we need one in a thousand documents.
Should I look for offer for a specific customer or the Project Directive for the same customer, I want to narrow down the question. Naming the document is thus vital, but above all the structuring. If you work internationally, it becomes more complex… offer in Spain is not the same as in Sweden.
We help you introduce international standards for document management for faster access in a PLM system that is built for complex facilities and not least product companies.
Plant structuring KKS-IEC
experts since the end of the 1990s
Classic “plant registers” have had the purpose of linking maintenance to something, ie only one aspect is taken into account. The purpose has thus not been to be able to look at the equipment’s naming where it is located or how it is supplied with voltage, which can be vital information for others in the organization.
Compared with a modern structuring where you include more aspects in your naming, you increase safety and through this also reliability. A modern way of looking at critical information that is constantly changing. We help you to put together a modern plant register with a new modern approach where who the information is for and how to make it available to those who need it is in focus.
Ides consulting has not only been involved in building up the current international standards IEC / ISO 81346, we also hold courses in these. KKS is also a well-spread standard and if you are not active in the construction industry, these standards can be applied to many other industries.
We help you with investigations, training and the introduction of an international designation system that is suitable today and well into the future.
Modernize your old digital information
Too many people sit with documents on a disk that are neither searchable nor have an uncertainty in what on the document is described. Let’s modernize documents and files!All our customers, regardless of whether you work in plant management or develop products, you have a history you must bring with you. We wash data and prepare it for a future where many different stakeholders, even after 2020, will need to read and evaluate.We have a consulting organization that in each new project handles large document volumes, sometimes up to 40-80,000 document items. In most cases, these documents are located as files on a server disk and where our work involves the use of our own and other tools to open the documents find information. All together with our customers who know what the documents contain, of course.
Modernization of plant registers, to structure old digital information
Lifting plant information from old plant registers, cable registers or perhaps just device lists or even information in old CAD files is more the rule than the exception in a data migration.
Our consultants have many years of experience in structuring and analyzing how you want to use your information and at the same time modernize.
Spare parts are vital for an operating organization, but you know how many places equipment is available and how much is needed in the future. Our consulting organization structures concepts such as articles and fixed objects. So that you can keep track of the situation and be able to dimension your stock according to how reality actually is, not what you think.
