Today’s engineering firms compete against competitors who may outsource to “high value engineering centers” on projects where owners demand safe but efficient designs to realize material, transportation and labor cost savings. Following parallel or independent project workflows similar to those of the last 30 years leaves your engineering firm at a competitive disadvantage.
EPC’s who’ve adapted a lean project execution strategy through optimized workflows and leveraging technology interoperability between the project disciplines have a way to deliver an efficient, safe and well-coordinated project to their clients, giving them an edge in today’s tight market.
Most of our Intergraph Smart 3D clients have implemented a lean workflow between their design and pipe stress analysis teams for years. Many of you have heard about the new Steel Connection Design functionality now available inside S3D, and how that data rich model can be leveraged into fabrication, again reducing errors and duplication of effort.
Join us for a look at how your structural engineering staff can join the modern collaborative workflow, no longer working blindly in their silo of material properties, stress, strain, and code checks. We will discuss the various workflows available and take a deeper look into the technology that makes a lean workflow possible for your structural engineers resulting in:
•More efficient structural designs
•Better coordinated projects
•Fewer construction change orders
This presentation will spotlight not only what technology can do to open the flow of information between engineering and design, but also how users can control that information flow.
