    Pims Preparation & Execution System (PES) is an Integrated Digital Arena for work preparation, planning, expediting, execution, and reporting with focus on performance and deliverables.The system provides a digital visualization of your asset with project status, easy access to information, and the possibility to communicate a live plan with real time material & logistics status. By utilizing an advanced workflow engine and project reporting capabilities built on LEAN principles you can document digital work processes to enable continuous improvement, and connect work processes with your digital organization to ensure best practice.

    What is PES ?

    A set of modules based on flow efficient work processes for planning and execution of activites related to commisioning and offshore construction phas. This enables a common live project status on work preparation , expediting/material and offshore execution. 

    Who are the users of PES ?

    Project personell involved in work preparation , planning, expediting , execution and reporting related to the commisioning and offshore construction phase: 

    • Work Preparation 
    • Planning
    • Procurement 
    • Material Management & Logistics
    • Pims Status Reporting
    • LCI Coordinator
    • Pims Completion Managment 
    • Project Managment 

    Why use PES?

    Pims PES system enables all alliances/contractors to be involved in the project to ensure management of consistent status and information to monitor and identify bottlenecks and concerns.This enables the project to take necessary steps to adjust, ensure needed progress and efficiency of the offshore execution. 

    PES has easy access to live project offshore execution data and project status for all project members via Pims. Our core module in Pims PES is the Work Preparation module with fully integrated material and logistic system. PES also ensure a more simplified and consistent reporting across projects and alliances/contractors related to the offshore execution phase per asset.
