CAESAR - an architecture for enterprise modelling in the aec industry

Abstract: This paper reviews work in progress concerning information modelling in support of enterprise engineering, and discuses how important modelling challenges are being addressed to support more cost effective development of offshore installations for oil production in the Norwegian part of the North Sea. The paper describes a framework and a methodology for information modelling of real world project enterprises and presents initial application examples from the offshore oil and gas industry. CAESAR Offshore is a research program undertaken jointly by Norwegian oil companies, engineering ms, research institutions and the Norwegian Research Council, with the aim of utilising information-technology-based methods and tools which lead to more cost effective field development and operation. As a part of CAESAR Offshore we are developing an object oriented system architecture consisting of a framework and methodology for information modelling, based on our belief that complete and correct enterprise models of development projects must include both the project requirements, deliverables, activities and organisation. Thus information models of projects must represent both the objective, product, process and organisation dimensions. Based upon a model of engineering design, we explicate and relate the enterprise dimensions, and outline a way of describing the difference between planned action and actual behaviour. We implement our model architecture according to an information meta-model, based on a set of common reference entities, and a general offshore reference model. In our work we are using the offshore reference model, as the basis for modelling offshore platforms, design of hydraulic system for offshore production units, and project control systems for engineering design projects.

Foundation for development of computable rules

Abstract: This paper gives an overview of the foundation for development of computable rules that can be implemented into commercial rule-checking software. The foundation for development starts with an overview over knowledge engineering and its roots in logic, mathematic, linguistic and knowledge philosophy. This gives motivation investing in a semantic based knowledge system. Otherwise is likely that the BIM based rule-checker systems ends up as building information mess. The link from the theoretical foundation to tools and methods can be connected by use of semantic software tools. Preliminary results and experiences from an ongoing Norwegian project are presented.

Virtual engineering teams: strategy and implementation

Abstract: A medium-sized and distributed (16 regional offices) Norwegian engineering company (ASPLAN-VIAK) has started a transformation to exploit information and communication technology as a potential for organising knowledge work in new modes. The effort does not only challenge technology, but also organisational systems and social constructs. The paper provides a philosophical, technological and social context for a full-scale experiment, and also summmarizes some experiences

Virtual Engineering Teams: Strategy and Implementation

Abstract: A medium-sized and distributed (16 regional offices) Norwegian engineering company (ASPLAN-VIAK) has started a transformation to exploit the potential of digital information and communication technology for organising knowledge work in new modes. The effort does not only challenge technology, but also organisational systems and social constructs. The paper discusses a philosophical, technological and social context for a full-scale experiment, and also summarises some experiences. The study indicates that virtual teams are becoming an interesting and viable way of organising knowledge work. The author believes that virtual teams will be a common and natural organisational form for companies who wants to be part of the open information society.

Networked engineering groups by 2002 – a result of current strategical decisions

Abstract: Based on three years of research on distributed Engineering groups in a Norwegian consultant company, this paper attempts to convey the link between current strategic decisions and a possible work situation for an engineer by the year 2002. The focus is on the interplay among engineers in a distributed organisation and how this interplay is supported by technology. IT strategy is an important aspect. Strategy is discussed in general and an extension to the classic strategy terms is proposed. A first level IT strategy for the actual case is presented. The conclusions from the scenario is that the most important competitive advantage is the ability to develop and offer high quality services that otherwise would have been impossible. The single most important enabler is competence. This points in turn to a strategy focused on continuously developing new competence among the employees (lifelong learning).

The role of Norwegian building standardizing and the use of advanced computer methods in building and civil work design and project management.

Abstract: The Norwegian national standards NS 3420, NS 3421 and NS 3451 are unique on a world basis, their concept as well as the resulting coding system and text elements. This idea being carried through to practical results may well be the reason why Norway has been able to establish such an advanced position, as compared to other nations, in the exploitation of computers in project management
