AVEVA challenges the ‘right first time’ design approach to engineering megaprojects and presents a route to controlling the ‘Design Spiral’
Cambridge, UK – 29 October 2013: AVEVA today announced its approach to ‘Engineering and Design for Lean Construction.’ This approach draws on Lean principles to guide the continuous, evolutionary process of engineering design development. In a new business paper, AVEVA explains how, by enabling dynamic feedback within the processes of complex, multi-discipline projects, a controlled ‘Design Spiral’ can be achieved, delivering the benefits of Lean Construction.
“Particularly during their early phases, plant projects involve continuous, high rates of design change that requires a uniquely flexible business process,” explained Bruce Douglas, Senior Vice-President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, AVEVA. “As complex designs are progressively created, information is shared across disciplines and contractual boundaries. Design changes occur continually as the overall design is refined through numerous cycles.”
