Product Catalogue

Sharecat is a global product catalogue that is updated on a continuous basis with manufacturers, product numbering, data templates and documentation. It contains product information captured over an 18 year period including products no longer in production, but still installed at thousands of assets. Companies can choose to be part of this shared catalogue by providing and getting information, but still being able to manage their special requirements. Alternatively private catalogues can be established for companies. These collect information from the global catalogue but do not share information they themselves bring in to this private catalogue. Regions/countries may have (or want to have) unified and special requirements for their local industry with the purpose to improve quality and efficiency. Such catalogues can also be set up. EqHub is an example used by the Norwegian oil and gas industry.

Sharecat

The purpose of the catalogue is to speed up any processes involving equipment data and documentation by re-using as much information as possible from project to project and company to company. By introducing the use of pre-approved information early in engineering/procurement activities, many tasks related to handling and approval of documents and data is no longer necessary. The information is established in close cooperation with the equipment vendor and is therefore more accurate and complete than information captured through multiple layers of package vendors and contractors

Regional Catalogue

Regions/countries may have (or want to have) unified and special requirements for their local industry with the purpose to improve quality and efficiency. Such catalogues can also be set up. As an example the Norwegian oil&gas industry is operating a common repository for the industry where many of the vendors, contractors and operators are committed to use equipment data and documents from one single source to the benefit for all participants. Read more about this initiative on EqHub. One of the benefits of this option is that vendors can meet a standard set of requirements and approved information for the whole region. The option may also be a good way of supporting local content where this is a requirement.
