Steven Convens’ Chemical Engineering Background along with his IT knowledge has given him the extra mileage in all the aspects of CAD & PLM System Administration/Implementation as well as Information & Plant asset life cycle management. Polyvalent with a huge appetite for knowledge and drive for efficiency, he is equally comfortable with the leading FEED intelligent 2D CAD systems (SmartPlant P&ID and INtools/SPI), the more complex principal detail engineering 3D (piping) design systems (Aveva PDMS, Intergraph PDS & SmartPlant 3D) and the convoluted principal Plant PLM data management, data integration and inter-company collaboration systems as SmartPlant Foundation. All above combined with heaps of engineering experience, common sense, pragmatism, an eagle-eyed end deliverables focus & an aversion for the "bleeding edge" of technology, makes him a valuable asset to any Project. Steven Convens has gained outstanding knowledge on piping specifications (ASME B16, B31, ANSI, EN, DIN, BS, pressure ratings, material types), multi discipline engineering workflow, engineering processes, procedures and terminology. He is in addition a strong advocate of rule-based & Object engineering as well as configuration management, however at the same time he is extremely conscious of the hazards involving the Data Centric vs. Drawing Centric Engineering Workflow Paradigm shift. Over 15 years of knowledge & information management experience was achieved in various hands-on administration & coordination roles on worldwide Process, Power, Pharma, Offshore & Nuclear projects for leading EPC companies, Owner/Operators, PLM IT consultancy firms & last but not least THREE!! Times Technip, TWO times Bechtel and TWO !! times Intergraph itself (owner of both PDS & SmartPlant Products). In summary Steven Convens perceives himself as having an optimal balance between both theory and practice (software vs. engineering practice), a holistic view of engineering, having a strong sense of project ownership and strong commitment to speed up productivity and optimize costs. He enjoyed in addition working abroad on numerous occasions and is happy to team up on any overseas assignment.

I/O interfaces such as DeltaV enable the automation engineer to work in the choice of software most familiar for I/O loading. it is positively encouraged. These inconsistencies form the substance of the evolving engineering design basis. understanding the isometric extraction process. The discussion will include current software prerequisites in addition to licensing requirements. This workshop will illustrate how information from the tools is segregated.
