Nisansala Liyanage

Document Controller at Exyte Singapore Pte Ltd in Singapore

Can you tell us a bit about you? 


My name is Nisansala Liyanage and I’m 39 years old. I am married with two adorable sons who are 12 and 10 and one beautiful daughter who’s 7. 


I am originally from Sri Lanka and currently settled in Singapore with my family. I love spending time with them as much as possible. 


I’m very interested in leading a healthy lifestyle so I make sure my family and I fit in regular activities which we can enjoy together like going on walks, cycling and camping.


What is your current role? 


I’m a Document Controller at Exyte Singapore Pte Ltd, [a firm specialising in design, engineering, and delivery of major complex projects and facilities for high-tech industries in Singapore].


My key responsibility is to manage the client documentation shared with the project team. 


As I’m quite proficient with the Exyte Document Control System, I provide system training to Exyte staff and sub-contractors and as well as manage the access to different systems used in the project.


Can you describe your professional experience? 


I started my career in 2008 as an administrative officer at Sembawang Shipyard handling Bohai FPSO project. After 3 years in the Oil and Gas industry, I joined a software manufacturing company, Yokogawa Engineering Pte Ltd as a Document Controller where I spent the next 5 years. 


Next, I was with Penta Ocean Construction Pte Ltd, followed by China Construction Pte Ltd where I got the opportunity to learn more on being a Document Controller. I set up a Document Control system for the project from Document Control procedure to electronic data management system. 


In my current position at Exyte Singapore Pte Ltd, I’m getting more opportunities to learn more about different systems and improve my professional skills as a Document Controller. 


My overall experience in the past 13 years has given me the knowledge and skills needed to successfully be a part of projects from the tender stage to handover while meeting the tight deadlines.


Which Consepsys course did you attend and when?


I attended the Certified Document Controller Course in May 2021 and the Certified Lead Document Controller Course in September 2021 in a live online class and got the certification for both.


Next, I’m planning to attend the Advanced Document Control Course.


What did you think about the Consepsys course? How did it help you in your current role and career development?


The courses were well prepared and delivered within the time frame. The instructors were well informed and easy to follow and made the entire course very enjoyable. 


I gathered quite a lot of important information such as how to highlight the importance of a good Document Control system and how to handle difficult situations I face in projects in relation to Document Controlling. 


This knowledge and experience will help to further my career goals to become a good Document Control manager.
