What is plant life cycle management?

Plant life cycle management is the process of managing the data and information of an industrial plant throughout all stages of its life cycle. These include, among many things, test results, inspection cycles and compliance documents, which should ideally be linked with each other so that operators can access necessary information to improve plant reliability and performance and reduce downtime.

Why is having a data management system important for plant life cycle management?

In order to meet safety standards for the technical systems in industrial plants, owners and operators must conduct safety tests and inspections, as well as provide proof of technical compliance. Whether required by quality and safety regulations or not, any test or inspection carried out during the plant’s lifetime must be scheduled, professionally handled and precisely documented.

A data management system is crucial in ensuring that all data and information relevant to the plant’s safety and quality is properly and securely stored throughout its lifetime. This not only enables owners and operators to prove the plant’s technical compliance, but also utilise the data to optimise their operations.

TÜV SÜD’s Data Management System (DAMAS) enables the optimal integration of inspections into your plant operations.

In addition to carrying out required tests, TÜV SÜD provides a secure, sophisticated SAP® web-based data management system (DAMAS), which maps out the complete inspection and life cycle of equipment and systems at a glance.

DAMAS helps to increase plant availability by providing access to current object data, statistical evaluations and equipment optimisation recommendations through condition-based, time-based or risk-oriented maintenance strategies.

With decades of experience in data management and technical knowledge, as well as approximately 250,000 registered test objects in DAMAS, TÜV SÜD can provide an overview of all legally-relevant and custom test specifications.
