This paper presents an overview of the process that resulted in the implementation of a document imaging and management system in the Research & Services Division of Phillips Petroleum. The purpose of this system is to capture the various documents maintained by the Reservoir, Geology, Geophysics and Production Technology branches into a master electronic fileroom. The system will facilitate sharing of data and information between groups and help reduce time required to search for and maintain project files. Many of the issues that were addressed are outlined in a format that serves as a case history example. These issues include system integration and alignment to existing Information Technology Architecture and Corporate Record specifications, adherence to Common Look/Feel and Client/Server guidelines, local and wide-area network compatibility, budget limitations, security and corporate scalability.
