CAMBRIDGE, England, Feb. 11 /CNW/ - AVEVA (LSE:AVV), the leading supplier
of engineering IT systems for the plant and marine industries, today released
its new collaborative tool for 3D engineering model review, AVEVA ReviewShare,
to its customer base, following successful product previews in Europe, the US
and Asia Pacific.
ReviewShare is bundled with version 6.4 release of AVEVA Review, at no
extra charge. It combines the unique, high quality 3D visualisation capability
of AVEVA Review with intuitive comment and mark-up tools to create compact,
easily distributable, 3D collaboration documents. It integrates fully with
Review, allowing each reviewer to add their own auditable comments,
incorporating text, 2D screenshots and 3D views, and share them easily with
other reviewers, even over low-bandwidth connections.
Businesses that do not currently use Review but who wish to share in the
design review process with other businesses that do have Review will be able
to download a ReviewShare Reader from the AVEVA website at
http://www.aveva.com/reviewshare. The ReviewShare Reader will create extended,
collaborative environments, which will help to address some of the challenges
inherent in working with third parties on large engineering projects.
ReviewShare was previewed at the industry's renowned EPEDC conference in
the Netherlands, where the delegate list included representatives from large
engineering businesses like ABB, Aker Kvaerner, Fluor Corporation, Jacobs and
Miguel Munoz-Tomas, EPEDC organizer, said: "One of the themes we tried to
bring out in the event was the importance of collaboration. AVEVA really
helped us with this, because the demonstrations and presentations around its
new product, ReviewShare, helped convince delegates that effective design
collaboration is now possible, even across different countries and continents.
At EPEDC, we are always delighted when we have been able to help articulate
the benefits of such ground-breaking new products to the industry."
Derek Middlemas, EVP Business Strategy at AVEVA, commented: "Effective
collaboration shortens project cycles, reduces costs and helps ensure design
integrity. We are delighted to be delivering these benefits to our customer
base through the launch of ReviewShare, particularly given that there is no
extra cost involved for the customer and that the industry, as we found out
from the preview events, is clearly so supportive of it."
