Peter has been at ESS since 2010. His responsibility is tools and processes for engineering and integration support. ESS is doing an interesting mix of product development, plant engineering and building construction. Peter works in integrating all these domains with their different tools and processes. CAD and PLM has been strongly connected throughout his career, which has resulted in an additional role as chairman of the System Change Board at ESS.
PLM for a greenfield project in a young, complex and growing organization
Peter will tell about the PLM vision, challenges and achievements in a young and fast growing organization as ESS is. How do you get as different people as product development, plant engineering and building construction to first understand each other and then work according to the same information management principles? The ESS plant is built from scratch and is a one-time project. Does Out-Of-The-Box PLM support this? How do you get the organization to decide on what level of detailing, automation and process support should come from PLM. Peter will touch on some of the challenges and successes he has met in the PLM project.
The European Spallation Source (ESS) is a multi-disciplinary research centre based on the world’s most powerful neutron source. This new facility will be around 30 times brighter than today's leading facilities, enabling new opportunities for researchers in the fields of life sciences, energy, environmental technology, cultural heritage and fundamental physics.
