CEI's Process Optimization Package for Outage Management using SAP Enterprise Project Connection (EPC) reflects over a decade of experience with many shutdown, outage and turnaround solutions of companies using SAP as their ERP application, and the SAP-PM (Plant Maintenance) module for maintenance management. By assuming that budgeting, procurement and asset management activities are performed in SAP ERP, the plant maintenance module becomes key to the effective execution of the outage.

  • Primavera owns the schedule - dates and progress.
    Primavera plays a key role in managing the schedule and related calculation of start times of activities. The calculated dates are fed back to SAP.
  • Progress is to be updated frequently from Primavera.
    At least once daily, progress information from Primavera will need to be updated into SAP.
  • Resource assignments are defined in SAP.
    Resources are defined as work centers in SAP PM. The resource library is brought into Primavera from SAP. The number of resources assigned to an activity can be changed in Primavera, but not what resource is assigned.
