#3 – Construction
Two-thirds of all engineering projects are delivered late. Bad for the client and bad for the contractor, who may be faced with penalty clauses and may lose opportunities to start new projects. And where around 40% of a project’s costs are labour, eliminating construction rework can deliver huge savings.
Clashes, designed-in collisions between parts that only come to light during construction, are a major cause of on-site rework. Trying to eliminate clashes using 2D design tools is almost impossible on all but the simplest projects. 3D design software offers the necessary capability, but attempting to design complex or sophisticated steel structures using 3D CAD tools not specialised for steelwork design makes it is easy to see why so few projects come in on time.

During this webinar Julien de Beer, Head of Product Business Management for Engineering & Schematics, and Henrik Hultin, Product Business Manager at AVEVA showcased how the new AVEVA Engineering 14.1 release can make inter-discipline collaboration more effective and efficient.
They also showed how it enables project development to be kept firmly under control and consistent deliverables to be produced; how it reduces the risk of inconsistent data creating costly rework and overruns; and how it provides Engineering and Project Managers with a clear overview of progress and the current status of the design.

A leading Malaysian engineering firm chooses AVEVA software solutions for quick project delivery
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – 10 July, 2014: D3SCOM Engineering (D3) Sdn. Bhd.has adopted AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) and AVEVA Laser Modeller software for its brownfield projects with Owner Operators in Malaysia. AVEVA software solutions enable D3’s designers to have a clear understanding of the as-is condition of an asset during brownfield projects. Direct integration of the 3D design model into the intuitive laser scan BubbleView allows accurate extraction of tie-in points and clash detection, and hence minimises project rework. 3D has successfully implemented AVEVA software on the Talisman Bunga Raya brownfield project earlier this year.

#2 – Procurement
Steel is expensive. Every tonne you waste takes around $1,000 off your bottom line; more if you have to re-procure at premium prices to replace scrap or make up shortages. And steel mills must schedule production well in advance, so inefficient procurement can result in missed production windows, with serious consequences for the project schedule.

#1 – Engineering and Design
Steel fabrication has long been the poor relation of the capital engineering industries, perceived as being a low-tech, commodity service, rarely able to play a fully participative role in the success of a project. Even though fabricators use dedicated, sophisticated software, its general inability to integrate closely with that used by other design disciplines creates a barrier to effective collaboration. Frustration and inefficiency are created on both sides.
