Plant Configuration Management: iPM is widely used within the energy industry to conduct plant configuration audits in order to ascertain the misalignment status between P&ID’s, SAP PM data or plant maintenance application information with “As-build” status. The iPM audit methodology is one of corrective action and not merely of recommendation nature, the focus is therefore on rectifying the miss-alignment between the above elements in order to avoid not only safety related incidents but also potential Unit or system trips.

The Plant Configuration Audit Methodology

Review and validation of all P&ID’s, SAP PM Data and KKS codes/Functional Location code/asset labels in relation to each other.

Recording of discrepancies.

Weekly reporting of discrepancies to site management.
