A fit and functioning Energy facility is built and maintained using the Work Pack. It is the key document, the ultimate source of information, that will be handled and utilized by multiple staff from Administration to Operations. A Work pack is designed to assist in the completion of tasks, including Engineering data, Construction, Maintenance, and repair. The Work pack or Advanced Work pack, usually more automated, contains all the crucial information to allow the job to be completed accurately, compliantly, and safely.
MODS Work Packs is part of our popular software for Brownfield projects – MODS Connect. This software solution links all the essential details pertaining to Engineering, Manning, Materials, Inventory, Fabrication, Installation, HSE (Health and Safety Executive), Scheduling, and estimated time. MODS Work packs are designed for the Energy Industry by Energy Industry experts. This system delivers an accountable and visible real-time view of the task from planning to sign-off.
Historically Work Packs have been enormous physical documents usually contained in large files or folders and can be hundreds of pages long. With the dawn of the digital age, these folders will become outdated. MODS software is providing the digital solution to an age-old, physical problem by creating a paperless, fit for purpose Work pack where sign-offs, permissions, copies, and departmental access can all be achieved instantly.
Inefficient Work Pack Systems Impact
- Project Completion dates & scheduled work time frameworks
- Costs, Budgets & additional funding requests
- Production performance and related workforce issues
- Communication & connectivity across the organization & hierarchy
- Potential unsafe execution of work
Current Work packs that rely on paper-based printouts, spreadsheets and physical signatures involve high manual intervention levels and unaccountability. This inevitably leads to errors causing safety issues, losses, and delays. Therefore, it is essential to have the correct solution to manage and monitor all these issues and push project plans forward.
Common Work Pack Management related challenges
- Incorrect and inaccurate population of forms resulting in lost paperwork and data
- Unclear knowledge of real-time production status
- Physicality of sharing information and communication causing unnecessary delays
- Large workforce requirements resulting in additional budget requirements
- Paper-based Work packs result in storage space and cost issues
- No primary database with all information easily accessible
- Delays in data synchronization resulting in inaccurate status
Digitize your Work Pack process
Converting your current Work Pack paperwork and processes to a digital model will revolutionize job scope definition. Work Pack preparation and schedules are supported and heavily influenced by accurate form filling, inclusive information sharing between departments and speedy sign-offs. Manual systems are cumbersome and time-consuming in comparison. Especially if the administration and permission signatures are in a different location involving return journeys onshore and offshore. A comprehensive software system will automatically negate and offer editing access, signatures and remove Work Pack transportation issues instantly.
Work Pack Contents
Job Cards complete with defined Milestones, detailed steps and activities with the necessary trade mix, Man hours and Bill of Materials. Key technical data for Construction and Operational requirements with the ability to show current status. Risk assessments and other documents can be reviewed and edited remotely. Vital components include Joint lists, Completion ITRs and the crucial Sign-offs.
All this information can be updated, shared, and accessed by permission, instantaneously, from anywhere in the world. Templates and structure can be modified to clients’ design. Assured with automatic cross referencing and form population, MODS Work Packs increase efficiency, reduce costs while giving full accessibility and transparency.
Speed saves time and money
This can be best illustrated when comparing the compilation and distribution of physical Work Packs. If you calculated the amount of time, manpower and physical resources used to assemble, ship, and closeout the Work Pack, you would be looking at sixty to ninety days. Over a two-year project, millions would be saved by going paperless. A Digital Work Pack is instant. No extra time to wait; adjustments, red-lines and sign-offs can be made and are effective immediately. No photocopying, physical distribution or storage required – a digital document is a time and money-saving as it gets.
Real-time status updates offshore and onshore
The Work Pack software from MODS provides a seamless, collaborative, cloud-based solution. The package integrates an innovative and highly interactive control technique, utilizing handheld devices in the field that ensures Work Packs are updated, monitored and controlled safely, efficiently, virtually on schedule.
