How to Navigate in the Application

In this section you will learn some basics on how to navigate in Oliasoft WellDesign.#

Startup View#

When entering a project, you will see the following startup view.

There are three main components to be aware of when navigating in Oliasoft WellDesign:

  1. Global Save Button

    Is used to save new information. This button has to be clicked on in order to save new information, i.e. navigating away from the Oliasoft WellDesign webpage without clicking the save button will cause your last inputted data to be deleted.

  2. Module Menu Button

    Is used to expand the module menu which displays the modules and sections to be found in Oliasoft WellDesign.

  3. Settings Menu Button

    Is used to enter user and company settings. These are not linked to a certain project, but are global settings for you as a user.

Module Menu#

The Module Menu button expands a menu displaying all the modules and sections to be found in Oliasoft WellDesign. As seen in the figure, the modules are set up chronologically according to industry workflows and indicate typical data results required in subsequent sections. For example, a trajectory design has to be entered prior to adding a casing design.

When entering a section in the application, you will be informed if some data has to be defined prior to performing any work in that section. For example, you will be told to define a well schematic design prior to performing temperature simulations.

Settings Menu#

The Settings Menu button expands a menu displaying the following options:

A Switch Company option will be visible for users with access to multiple organizations and allows the user to switch easily between the companies.
