One of the primary challenges in asset master data improvement projects is that the as-built records reside in a variety of structured and unstructured information sources. In fact, most of the information required for a complete as-built record is often found on documents. These critical source documents may include facility engineering design drawings and base maps, as well as equipment vendor data sheets, purchase orders and operations manuals. Therefore, key document identification, retention and data extraction become key elements of a successful asset master data quality initiative.
