About PI Confluence
PI Confluence (PIC) provides a complete governance control system that manages processes, workflow, communications, and information exchange. PIC is focused on process management and stakeholder communication to implement API Pipeline SMS (PSMS), GMS (Governance Management System) objectives, and regulatory compliance. ICAM and pSEc are the web-based process management software tools that allow operators to document what you know (pSEc) and what you do (ICAM).
In the oil and gas industry, when the operator’s API-driven Safety Management System (SMS) is linked with the PIC GMS, it ensures that all areas of the PSMS are fully deployed throughout all levels of the organization. A comprehensive GMS can also provide real-time data to senior leadership on the health of the PSMS and any gaps that need to be addressed.
As regulators’ expectations move toward auditing the operator’s processes and implementation records, the ability to provide the who, what, when, where, and why associated with execution becomes more important than the actual “governance/plan” itself. The PIC Integrity Management and Safety Management Systems provide the means to effectively manage all of that data.
Benefits derived from using PIC tools include:
- Consistency, Sustainability
- Who, What, When, Where Why Documentation?
- Workforce Attrition Protection
- Supports a Defensible Position
- Maturity Measurement
- Improved Communications
- Program Execution and Effectiveness Performance Tracking and Analytics
- Improved Audits
