Design Software Reduces CAPEX Costs

Intergraph recently released SmartPlant Construction, a new SmartPlant Enterprise software module created specifically for process, power and marine firms to more efficiently plan and manage plant, ship and offshore construction, resulting in increased productivity, accelerated project completion, and reduced risk. By seamlessly integrating engineering, procurement, fabrication and site materials, SmartPlant Construction facilitates improved work planning, efficient information exchange for better communication and enhanced engineering and construction work processes.

Using current information from various sources such as 3D models, 2D engineering tools, materials management and project control and scheduling systems, SmartPlant Construction ensures accurate and timely decisions can be made on the best available information. The software integrates all necessary information to develop precise and flexible work packages to better manage labor and materials at the work site. Effectively managing and integrating information relevant for construction helps to shorten project times, reduce costs and improve CAPEX efficiency for owner operators.

SmartPlant Construction was developed by engaging plant, marine and offshore engineering, procurement and construction industry leaders to provide industry best practice work processes. Intergraph SmartPlant Construction premier partners include companies such as Fluor, Technip, CTCI, Kiewit, Nexen, and URS Washington Division.
