Asset Libraries

The first step when creating a new project in the Field Activity Planner is typically to design a new field layout. To achieve this you can quickly and easily design the wanted field layout by using the "Field Layout" designer tools. The Asset Libraries section is where you will find the overview and information on all the available asset libraries available for your subscription. The default libraries will be the Generic library for standard subsea and topside assets including vessels. You will also have a generic Wind Farm asset library for Offshore Wind Assets.

Assets will typically be design elements that depict subsea installation structures or other operational equipment such as "Manifolds", "Templates", "FPSOs" etc. At the moment "Field Activity Planner" comes with a generic library of the most commonly used structures and vessels, but we will soon provide additional libraries. In addition we will also offer the capability to add your own custom assets and meta data to the "Asset Library".

Any Private Asset Libraries registered to your account will also be shown here.

Account

If you have more then one account created on your private instance you can select which account you will view the available asset libraries from by selecting it from the dop down list as shown here:

In this example there is only one account available.

Filter Assets

You can filter the "Asset Library" by type by selecting the appropriate selection from the drop down filter as shown here:

Simply select the asset category from the drop down list to display that category. At present only the Structures, Vessel, and Submerged categories are available for selection. This will then only display the assets in the selected category.

Asset Details
