Digital systemisation / subsystemisation

Traditional approach

Systemisation and subsystemisation are time consuming, often resulting in unpopulated completions systems until well into the construction phase. This significantly impacts both the ability to “plan with the end in mind” during engineering, and to define the optimum path of construction. Tag numbering usually contains the system code, which is created by engineering. However, experience has shown that in 15%-20% of cases, the tags end up in different systems to the system code contained in the tag number.

Our digital process is linked to the 3D model, which accelerates the systemisation process based on engineering deliverables. This process provides visual validation of system limits and supports the optimisation of the subsystemisation process.


On a major project, systemisation and subsystemisation can be achieved in as little as 3 months. This enables a digital offtake from the model to populate the completions system. It is acknowledged that engineering is not complete at this time, but the process has been proven to be more than 90% accurate. This is achieved in a fraction of the time and cost of the traditional process. Identifying discrepancies between system allocation and tag numbers can support the updating of tag codes before they are issued to a construction contractor. This also improves the intelligence in the model for the digital twin. Visual systemisation and subsystemisation enables the path of construction to be optimised with “plan with the end in mind.”
