Transforming Standards Development

Looking to Effectively Control Project Costs and Schedules?

 

EDS-Hyperspecs (EDS) provides expertise in the development and maintenance of construction standards for the oil and gas industry. These are the standards that apply to all projects and are used to specify requirements for facilities. These standards are high-value documents developed by owner subject matter experts (SMEs) to define requirements for design, materials, equipment, and construction of upstream, midstream and downstream processing facilities.

As projects become more costly and technology becomes more complex, there is a need for refinement of the standards to meet these new conditions. Most owner/operators have not developed the expertise to optimize large text-based document systems.

EDS provides comprehensive services to develop and maintain corporate construction standards. We can take rough drafts from subject matter experts and turn them into polished documents.

The goal of improved standards is to accurately communicate requirements to a variety of audiences outside the owner organization.

Improved standards save money, reduce schedules, and are easy to use and maintain.

Framework

Specifications development best practices ensure quality standards across all documents, improving engineering efficiencies.
 

Methodology

Proven 7-step process delivers clear, precise standards for upstream, midstream and downstream processes.
 

Recognition

"Quality specifications are critical to obtaining the results we want from our engineering contractors and equipment vendors. EDS helps ensure that the specifications we issue get the results we need."

The review was positive and we would like you to continue with the format you have suggested for the rest of the documents. The format and changes suggested were seen as a good step forward and essential in framing the documents so that overlaps and redundancies among documents becomes apparent.

Just wanted to convey a special thank you for your prompt attention to this document. I have received some very positive comments regarding your work from a group that I anticipated would push back more than agree.

The document edited by EDS-Hyperspecs is so clear it can be reviewed and updated in a day rather than in the week that it used to take.
