Speed up your QA processes

Changes to assets need to be reflected in your as-built documentation. Content Server offers functionality to cross reference documents to eachother and initiate change workflows to control work in progress. But which documents are affected by a change?

Where OpenText stops with metadata and referencing at document-level, Viewport has the ability to cross-reference numbers and tags inside a document/drawing to the exact location inside other documents where the same number or tag appears.

Powered by Viewport, your QA and QC staff can immediately list all content affected by a change. There’s no need anymore to manually cross reference items.

Sharing knowledge while safeguarding intellectual capital

Typically during maintenance a lot of people need access to technical asset documentation. How do you inform your maintenance crew, usually doubled with temporary staff, without handing over source documentation such as DWG files?

Viewport converts any source file to PDF files highlighting and hyperlinking tags in the resulting document. Authorise your maintenance crew to these smart and hyperlinked documents stored in Content Server while preventing them from downloading source documents.

Viewport adds the following features to OpenText Content Server:

  • turns Content Server into an asset dashboard showing content outside of Content Server, such as temporary file shares or maintenance systems such as Ultimo or Maximo
  • automatic extraction of metadata from any content item, such as DWG’s, Office documents and P&ID’s
  • automatic generation of cross references between items as if manually applied
  • highlights tags in the document
  • adds hyperlinks to tags that enable you to quickly view asset information and all related documents that mention this tag or asset

How does Viewport enhance OpenText Content Server and xECM?

OpenText offers a number of solutions for asset information management with Content Server at its core. To achieve an even more seamless integration between OpenText Extended ECM for Engineering and OpenText for Plant Maintenance, the integration with Radial SG Viewport delivers an additional edge for existing users.

Radial offers an OpenText extension that adds an additional tab (Configuration within the OpenText Perspective Manager) which shows the Engineering related “As-Built” documents which are connected by tags to a specific SAP Object (like a Functional Location).

Viewport adds advanced viewing and linking to the standard OpenText interface

Existing users will use OpenText Extended ECM for Engineering Vault as they are used to. Viewport just adds extra capabilities, like showing which items are related based on the contents of each document.

When opening a document, the ViewPort portal is refreshed showing the information of this particular document.

Viewport recognises and highlights tags in any document

What to do with older documents and scanned images? Viewport can recognise tags in hundreds of thousands of documents and when viewing these older files, you can easily see tags and click on them to find related content. Viewport’s superior tag recognition saves the time to manually run through each document and find what is relevant.
