Handover of asset information from contractor to owner operator (OO) often occurs at the end of a project and as a single “data dump” of documents. This leaves the plant and facility OOs with a pile of data and documents to sort through. The process of validating this information and the manual work associated is very costly. Some studies have shown that up to 98% of OOs experience delays due to poorly filed operational information, while 88% of OOs incur unexpected costs due to information problems following handover. In this infographic, we further define the issues faced by owner operators, describe keys to successful information handover, and outline the benefits of Siemens’ handover solutions.
