Share Article

The oil and gas industry players now have new support software options available to their critical function tasks, via Practical Programs' new Data Viewer Total Document Management (Dv TDM) for CAD. This is welcome news for oil and gas engineering functions worldwide.

Data Viewer Total Document Management (or "Dv TDM" for short) is not only a robust total document and email management solution but it also offers specifically tailored features to meet stringent engineering requirements related to project and drawing management. Paper and/or CAD drawings along with other associated documents can be managed through their entire life cycle. In addition, it can now be fully integrated with Microsoft Sharepoint. This is welcome news for the Oil and Gas / Energy industry and energy-compatible industries where engineering projects require a high level of CAD document management functionality and integration with Sharepoint workgroups.

Highly configurable features of this CAD document management software such as Check in, Check Out, Revisioning, Reference File Management (and many more) are flexible in their design and can be tailored to engineering-specific needs. A full audit trail of activity, total document security, customizable document/drawing numbering, file naming and revision number nomenclature is available.
With Dv TDM partnerships can be enhanced with Designers, Owners, Builders and Operators by creating ready access to documents related to Calculations, Operating Manuals, Progress Reports, Specifications, along with other documents and drawings. With one or many projects Dv TDM can manage an entire document line through their entire life cycle.

Engineering/CAD users of the Data Viewer Total Document Management software (Dv TDM) also can now leverage an exhaustive suite of functions and related tasks, including interaction with all existing Office features, web-based or desktop viewing, and system design options such as flexible screen interfaces, database fields, security levels and profiles.

The Data Viewer Total Document Management system also allows users to convert and track drawings and documents, search, modify, set workflow approvals, integrate with AutoCAD, Microstation, and Office products (including Outlook), as well as creating administrative access to control user access, configure security settings, reference file management issues pending. Groundlevel users can auto-create drawing numbers, link database fields, auto-import files, view and markup, and handle file conversion. Old projects can be archived to CD or DVD for safe storage and indexing.

With regard to the target audience for this software, Bret Lawson at Practical Programs commented that "the Oil and Gas industry have a lot to gain from this software in particular, due to the existing need for such a comprehensive and integrated suite of CAD document management tools for energy-related engineering tasks".
