    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    Interest in paper mill life cycle management has been increasing in recent years. One of the most important aspects in large-scale paper mill life cycle management is information sharing between the different stakeholders (engineering, procurement and construction contractors as well as mill owner-operators). The goal of the study was to create a common data model, allowing the technical data to flow smoothly from the product data management and engineering systems of the equipment suppliers and EPC companies to the maintenance management systems of the mill owner-operator. Requirements for the data model were such that it had to be consistent with the international standards, but also simple enough to be rapidly implemented to currently used applications. The developed solution is called mill model. This solution was tested by transferring data from existing product data applications to existing maintenance management systems that are used by the major stakeholders in the paper industry.
