PAS Configuration Management Software implemented at Oil Refining & Petrochemical Complex

SK Corporation implements Integrity across its entire Ulsan, Korea facility for management of over 120 automation assets, increasing efficiency, safety and Return on Assets.

Houston, TX September 21, 2006 - SK Corporation recently implemented PAS’ Configuration Management Software solution at its Ulsan complex.

Significant benefits have been achieved at the SK Ulsan complex from daily use of PAS’ Integrity Configuration Management Software. Y.K. Lee, Senior General Manager CIM Development Team at SK Corporation said, “Integrity has brought a new level of visibility to our automation assets allowing us to visualize, manage and document the intellectual property contained within them. This has helped SK increase profitability and reliability.”

SK chose Integrity to manage and optimize their entire range of automation assets due to its ability to automatically document, visualize, and track changes for their automation assets across the entire processing complex. Specific benefits achieved include:

Cost Reduction


  • Personnel Productivity
  • Better Utilization of Available Capacity

    Improved Safety Performance
  • Accurate and Available Documentation
  • Work Process
  • Asset Model Information

    Improved Return on Asset Performance
  • Asset Visualization
  • Continuous Improvement
  • Risk Management
  • Disaster Recovery

    Engineers, operations personnel, and management at SK had been using the Integrity product since late 2005 to manage a subset of their automation assets. This recent work connects over 120 automation assets to the main Integrity server from across the processing complex, making information readily available on demand via web client to all authorized SK staff.
