Business paper introduces new level of plant design efficiency
CAMBRIDGE, England, July 23, 2012 /CNW/ - AVEVA, today announced the
release of a new business paper for the process and power industries
highlighting the need to maximise the efficiency of plant design.
Following the announcement of its vision for 'The Future of Plant
Design', AVEVA is sharing its industry insight to help EPCs reduce
project costs while improving quality.
AVEVA's revealing business paper introduces the concept of a design
spiral as a way to characterise the plant design process and identify
how efficiencies can be made. Optimising design efficiency, AVEVA
argues, is one essential step in moving closer to the ultimate goal of
maximum project performance.
"We understand the uniqueness of the markets we serve", said Dave
Wheeldon, CTO & Head of Engineering & Design Systems, AVEVA. "You can't
produce plants in volume in the same way that they do in the
manufacturing industry. It's not about economies of scale; you must
optimise each bespoke process.
"As major capital projects are increasing in size and complexity, the
market is embracing joint ventures and sub-contractors to manage risk.
This places the project team under enormous pressure to deliver work
that is coordinated and meets contract obligations to avoid high
penalty clauses. We have seen how improved design efficiency provides
an essential and significant contribution to the supply chain."
Focusing on six key areas, including openness, integration and
compliance, the paper highlights what AVEVA anticipates will be the
main factors driving plant design efficiency.
