available to all users. Users do not have to install any

software in order to use the web application – they only need an internet browser on the device they are using. LiveDOK.Web is designed for touch operation and works independently of the type of operating system, meaning that it can be used equally well on Windows, Android or iOS devices. The user interface is responsive and thus adapts flexibly to different display sizes. So if someone wants to refer briefly to the documentation, this can now be done on their mobile phone. When entering changes, however, a bigger display in the form of a tablet should be used. The mobile variant supports the same change functions as the desktop solution.

CHANGE ENTRIES MADE EASY Whether as a desktop version or in mobile use, flexibility and simplicity of operation are essential elements of the idea behind the digital documentation software. LiveDOK NG converts documents out of more than 200 different trade-specific data formats from the areas of CAD, Office and multimedia into PDF format. These PDF documents can then be used as a basis for further work. Thus no special programs or licenses are necessary in order to view or change the documentation. Thanks to clever indexing, the whole body of documentation can be searched in a very short time with a “Google-type” search

who has made what changes, and when. Thus the development of the documentation remains traceable for years. Working with the digital

documentation system is suited to all the phases of a plant’s life cycle, whether for P&I diagrams, flow diagrams and loop lists in the planning phase or floor plans, storage plans and foundation plans during the construction phase. Factory Acceptance Tests (FATs) and loop checks can also be more efficiently

syntax, and the required documents quickly located. The structuring of the documents and views can be adapted to individual needs. A broad range of redlining functions is available, enabling a wide variety of changes to be made directly in the document. The redlining options range from

handwritten entries, marking, crossing out and many more, to the uncomplicated assigning of individual document status. Changes that have been made are available to all users straight away. The entered changes can also be filtered according to various criteria (processor’s identity, date, document status etc.) and then passed on to the relevant engineering departments, who can then adapt the original documents and re-enter the updated version – without redlining – into the documentation tool. Throughout all these processes it is always recorded

and reliably performed with the support of the software. It is suitable for operating regulations and safety instructions. Uses in maintenance include keeping service instructions and inspection protocols up to date. In quality management, inspection requirements, qualification documents and similar can be stored and/or generated.

BENEFITS OF CONSISTENT PLANT DOCUMENTATION With the mobile variant, digital plant documentation can now be used throughout. The consistent plant documentation resulting from this benefits companies in many ways. At all operation sites valid, constantly updated documentation is available that provides evidence of tests and changes. This fulfils all specifications on regular inspection and legislation on health and


safety at work (for instance Directive 2009/104/EC or in Germany BetrSichV) and considerably enhances plant safety. By using consistent documentation, companies make an important contribution at the same time to the safety of their personnel and their plant, and to environmental protection. Consistent plant documentation also ensures trouble-free production processes and adherence to product specifications, thus enhancing product quality generally. Personnel can be deployed more efficiently since, apart from anything else, they no longer have to spend time tracking down paper documentation and laboriously making copies. And consistent plant documentation improves the public image of the enterprise because it is in a better position to fulfill the demands and expectations of legislators, investors and employees. The reverse is also true. Working with

documentation that is not necessarily completely up to date can have adverse effects. In less serious cases, for instance, false alarms may be triggered by wrongly-installed replacement parts. More far-reaching effects may be the increased production of NOK parts or more plant downtimes, and in the worst case incomplete or non-current documentation can lead to accidents or environmental pollution, with all the associated negative consequences.
