Engineering Information Management for the Chemical Industry

One source of truth for capital projects, operations, and maintenance.

Your chemical manufacturing environment is in a constant state of change. Employees in the plant need fast access to “as-built" plant documentation, while engineering projects happen in parallel. Adept keeps everyone on the same page with a centralized platform that increases efficiency, improves safety, protects intellectual property, accelerates projects, and streamlines compliance.

"Adept manages billions of dollars of digital assets containing priceless Dow intellectual property, with thousands of users across several dozen global sites. Adept is the cornerstone of our digital transformation strategy."

Keep Your People and Plant Safe

Document management is a life-critical standard.

  • Harmonize as-built plant documentation with concurrent engineering projects to avoid costly mistakes
  • Automate version control and have confidence in your data
  • Find critical documents located anywhere within seconds
“Managing documents is a life-critical standard. If someone follows an out-of-date procedure or works from an unapproved version, it could result in people being harmed or killed.”

Employees spend 1.8 hours every day—9.3 hours per week, on average—searching and gathering information.

Put another way, businesses hire 5 employees but only 4 show up to work; the fifth is off searching for answers, but not contributing any value.
