Cambridge, U.K. – AVEVA announced the release of a new business paper for the process and power industries highlighting the need to maximize 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 characterize the plant design process and identify
how efficiencies can be made. Optimizing design efficiency, AVEVA argues, is
one essential step in moving closer to the ultimate goal of maximum project
“We understand the uniqueness of the markets we serve”,
said Dave Wheeldon, CTO and head of Engineering and 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 optimize
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.
