Document Management, Control and Archiving (DMCA) implements a number of business processes associated with the management of project assets. Automation of the interactions among users who participate in a process has improved how that process functions, increased
efficiency, and led to lower error rates. To support SKM business processes DMCA executes workflow applications for Compound (Complex) Document based processes. Workflows support these SKM processes by helping end users to focus on tasks rather than the details
of the process. The workflows also provide information about processes by allowing the tracking of progress and events within the process.
DMCA integrates with SKM existing Project Registration system to utilise data during the site provisioning process. The ability to provision
new Project Sites in a near automated fashion has ensured that corporate standards such as reference data, corporate and project based templates can standardised across all projects globally.
This level of governance and standardisation is considered to be a critical requirement as DMCA is rolled out across SKM, which currently stands at approximately 6500 employees spread across over 12 countries.
To deliver Transmittal functionality and deliver an enhanced end user experience DMCA utilised Cadac’s Organice product suite. Cadac Organice
is a software suite for Engineering Document Management and Document Control and is entirely based on Microsoft SharePoint. Cadac Organice helps project driven organizations to manage their (project) documents, like Office documents, email and CAD drawings,
and to control their document distribution and tracking with transmittals and workflows.
In addition to integrating with Organice, DMCA extended the Organice product suite by:
automating the provisioning of Organice features implementing a solution to manage the revisioning of compound (complex) documents
SKM’s service delivery to clients occurs in a project based environment, ranging from small consulting assignments conducted by individuals
and small teams, to major EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management) and D&C (Design and Construct) projects conducted by large, multidisciplinary, geographically dispersed, and often multi-company teams. An efficient, universally accessible,
and controlled project document management system is an essential requirement for SKM to remain competitive in its markets. Therefore, the following business drivers led to the initiation of the DMCA programme:
Strategic positioning for global delivery of
Governance and Risk Management (Better visibility
of processes ensure that information leaving SKM is checked and approved)
Improve service delivery to client
Reduce transaction management cost
DMCA was targeted to deliver the listed benefits:

regardless of location
Traceability and visibility of project information changes and process flow
Improved use of resources (increase efficiency)
