Data; Availability and Quality
I want to get to information quickly and I want to know it’s accurate
The main challenges related to data:
Gathering and sharing data with other project stakeholders
Being able to query and update data (e.g. maintenance history, replacements, modifications, etc.) currently stored on a variety of databases and software tools.
Providing optimised maintenance and decommissioning programs
Knowing what data you need, and planning to have that data available is critical to the productivity of the Decommissioning Team. The data needed to manage late life and decommissioning is a different mix to the metrics we use during production.
The keys to successful data management are
Knowing what to collect and how to collect it
