Dassault SystÃ¨mes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world-leader in 3D design software, 3D digital mock-up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, announced that Cairn India, one of the 20 largest independent oil exploration and production companies in the world, will deploy Dassault SystÃ¨mes’ optimised plant construction (OPC) industry solution experience for integrated project management systems (IPMS). Cairn India, rated as the fastest-growing energy company in the world by Platts, has a world-class resource base, with interest in seven blocks in India, one in Sri Lanka and one in South Africa. The deployment of the web-based IPMS will enable Cairn India to achieve key performance metrics comparable to the best in the global exploration and production industry, and align its processes to the best-in-class in terms of overall project execution and performance. The objective of deployment of web-based IPMS is to optimise use of resources, planning, executing, monitoring, controlling, real-time communication and systematic data management of the overall project activities. With Dassault SystÃ¨mes’ OPC industry solution experience, real-time accurate project status will be available for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phases during the project lifecycle, and will also give real-time dashboards across heterogeneous systems, including SAP’s ERP using information intelligence. The targeted benefits for deploying IPMS are to enable a single source of information for all the projects, project audit and traceability. It will improve productivity by seamless coordination with internal and external stakeholders and provide a realistic project forecast.
Dassault SystÃ¨mes India managing director Dr Chandan Chowdhury said: “If we are to look at reducing India’s dependence on crude oil imports, we need to optimise the upstream and downstream in a way that addresses the expanding energy needs of our country. I am delighted that Cairn India has chosen our 3DEXPERIENCE platform to meet its critical project management requirements.”
