The Meridian connector integrates Meridian information, such as drawings and documents, into Viewport. End-users can access the content on any device, including mobile, and see how the information from Meridian relates to information, such as equipment data or real-time process data, from other sources that are connected to Viewport.
The integration runs in the background on a Meridian Server and uses generic Meridian methods, allowing for fast configuration in almost any Meridian environment.
Meridian is an engineering document management solution. Viewport takes information from Meridian and other sources, consolidates and delivers a complete view of your assets into a single and easy-to-use interface.
Asset management and lifecycle is a complex process in the various industry worldwide. Many industries are struggling to manage their asset information which is stored in multiple applications across the enterprise. This has resulted in rapid response times when it comes to finding, accessing and changing drawings in instances when plant modifications are urgently needed.
Cristal (Tronox) experienced an incident with the existing content management solution at the Bunbury site in Western Australia. The incident left a large volume of content with incomplete metadata on the site file systems. There was a challenge for Tronox to index the content and make it searchable in a format that would be easily accessible for the user community.
Tronox decided to use Viewport, which they subsequently connected to their Meridian solution. It was immediately apparent to the management that Viewport could be used to gather and consolidate information, companywide. Viewport would ensure that everyone had easy access to information whenever it was needed. To ensure the best use of valuable resources, the Viewport installation was carried out remotely.
