New products, enhancements and greater 3D integration increase
productivity for the Plant and Marine industries
CAMBRIDGE, England, July 17, 2013 /CNW/ - AVEVA announced today its
release of new products and improvements in its AVEVA Bocad range of
structural steel detailing software. The new products will increase
structural detailing capability and enable more design standardisation
and automation. Together, by enabling more effective decision-making
and increasing project transparency, these new features offer potential
project time and cost savings of up to 30-40 percent.
In addition, AVEVA Bocad has benefited from better integration with
AVEVA's 3D design products - AVEVA Everything3D, AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA
Outfitting. Engineering contractors and fabricators working in the
Process Plant and Marine industries will therefore be able to achieve
greater productivity and project quality. This can eliminate many
sources of errors, leading to time and cost savings.
AVEVA Bocad Steel, AVEVA Bocad Onshore, AVEVA Bocad Offshore and two new
products, AVEVA Bocad Tower and AVEVA Bocad Roof and Wall, have been
developed to meet customer demand for sophisticated, purpose-designed
software to improve design and fabrication efficiency in these
Using these with the new AVEVA Bocad Steel Interface, AVEVA Plant or
AVEVA Marine users can now achieve a much greater level of design
integration. Advanced change highlighting and real-time updates enable
swift and effective communication between design teams to achieve major
time and cost savings.
"It was important that we extended AVEVA's Integrated Engineering &
Design capabilities to embrace the structural steel discipline", said
Bruce Douglas, Senior Vice-President, EDS Strategy & Marketing, AVEVA.
"AVEVA Bocad now works with AVEVA's Plant and Marine products,
including all of our 3D design software tools. Engineers can now supply
accurate and timely deliverables to dramatically increase productivity
and quality throughout the fabrication and construction processes."
EDC Consultants of Australia has been using Bocad software for over 12
years. Its Managing Director, Chris Velovski said, "Using the Bocad
software, we've developed some really intelligent design automation
that has astonished our partners. We can deliver massive efficiency &
cost benefits. Using the power of the Bocad software we have been able
to overcome any challenge, and I mean ANY challenge; we have not come
across any technical situation that Bocad has not been able to help us
resolve. We look forward to more exciting technology developments like
this in the future."
AVEVA Bocad is fully integrated into AVEVA's Integrated Engineering &
Design solutions. This approach improves project efficiency and reduces
engineering and design costs by offering complementary products that
draw on common processes, disciplines and deliverables, through a
single managed information model. For more information visit http://www.aveva.com/aveva_bocad_steel.
