Evonik: OneCAE - Data Driven Asset Lifecycle Management
CAE was for a long time dominant only in the area plant planning and construction. Today, it is the foundation for a successful digitalization of many, if not all, processes during the production phase of a plant. For this, engineering data has to be generated in a way, that the data can be used during operation for maintenance and production processes as well. Indispensable is a harmonized data model covering the full asset lifecycle. It enables any application to work without any information loss. Equally important is a tool landscape to make access to this data easy and efficient. Only if data is used it provides value! With OneCAE Evonik has implemented an innovative Engineering Master Data solution, data driven and powered by AVEVA. We at Evonik are convinced that the data driven approach secures asset information for the full lifespan of a plant, breaking information silos, ensuring higher engineering efficiency, AND equally supporting the asset in operation.

Evonik Operations GmbH
Based on a University Degree in Engineering and Computer Science I started my career at Evonik (Degussa at that time) in 1988 in R&D establishing the early digitalization solutions in labs.
Afterwards I spent more than 25 years in IT holding various global positions in project management, communication operation and client support. Approximately 10 of these years I worked in the US and in Singapore.
The last 5 years I moved to Technology and Infrastructure implementing Evonik s data driven CAE solution.
Chad has over 10 years of experience in digital engineering covering digital transformation strategies, project delivery, business intelligence, and operational efficiencies. He has extensive experience in process simulation, continuous improvement methodologies, and leading all phases of projects typical to the specialty chemical industry.
Chad is a regional consultant in transforming businesses through innovative solutions and digital programs to accelerate growth, reduce operating costs, and exploit competitive advantages. His work includes the realization of Digital Twins for operating plants that bridge the gap seen in data management between the engineering project world and the operations world.
