After rolling out AssetWise ALIM to the organization, AmerenUE received feedback from its engineers that more integration with their in-house work management system was required. AmerenUE leveraged the versatility of AssetWise ALIM and familiarity with its own work management system to create a new front-end application known as the Ameren Document Viewer. The viewer automates the process for managing design modifications at AmerenUE’s non-nuclear power plants.
AssetWise ALIM is used to store and manage all change-controlled documentation. The Ameren Document Viewer helps engineers keep track of where their documents are in the overall design change process while adhering to compliance standards for document and design control. Ameren Document Viewer displays a consolidated view of all relative design change information. AssetWise ALIM is the back-end system, ensuring the appropriate checks are made and that data inaccuracies do not occur.
Using Ameren Document Viewer, design changes are now easily accessible from a main overview display equipped with powerful filtering and drill-down capabilities. Implementing standard procedural steps from beginning to end for the workflow of document and drawing updates further streamlined the overall process. The viewer also offers increased visibility for supervisors and upper management that was not available with the old system.
AssetWise ALIM is the system of record for all design changes. Ameren Document Viewer displays a consolidated view of all related design change information, including affected documents and their associated markups, related documents, supporting files, design change forms, and work management routing status. This gives engineers insight into both active and historical design change information.
