One generic working definition that most stakeholders may agree on is that Integrated Operations (IO) denotes the integration of people, work processes and technology to increase the quality and speed of decisions and execution. This is enabled by the use of ubiquitous real-time data, collaborative techniques and multiple expertise across disciplines, organizations and geographical locations. From an original denotation for processes and tools for effective real-time utilisation of increased amounts of data, IO has gradually developed into a rather generic term covering most aspects of the oil and gas industry that involves information, communication and cooperation. The term Integrated Operations is often used in a broad and general manner, and this poses a problem when the effects of IO on safety are to be explored. In addition, lack of delimitation of the industrial domain is problematic because certain aspects of IO might influence different industrial domains differently.
