Intergraph has released Smartplant Construction: a Smartplant Enterprise software module created specifically for process, power and marine companies.

The module is intended to help these companies to more efficiently plan and manage plant, ship and offshore construction, resulting in increased productivity, accelerated project completion and reduced risk.

By 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 that accurate and timely decisions can be made on the best available information, according to the company.

The software integrates all necessary information to develop precise and flexible work packages to better manage labour 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 specialists to provide best-practice work processes.

Intergraph Smartplant Construction partners include companies such as Fluor, Technip, CTCI, Kiewit, Nexen and URS Washington Division.

The goal was to create an integrated next-generation information management platform necessary to keep field personnel actively engaged in advancing the project, saving time and money while increasing accuracy.

Expected benefits from the use of Smartplant Construction are: improved workforce productivity; expedited field construction (shorter project execution phase); reduced CAPEX costs; better data exchange and communications between engineering and construction teams; information integration between all necessary tools; and low training costs and reduced time thanks to a simple user interface.

Features include work package planning, an enhanced graphics interface with the 3D model, drag-and-drop functionality and direct interfacing with scheduling systems.

To enhance flexibility and interoperability, Smartplant Construction is an integrated solution with an open API to accommodate 3D models and other data from third-party applications.

Smartplant Construction is part of Intergraph’s Smartplant Enterprise integrated solutions suite, which provides the full design, construction, materials and engineering data management capabilities needed for the creation, safe operation and maintenance and capital project lifecycle management (cPLM) of large-scale process, power, marine and offshore projects.

The software’s lifecycle data management is also claimed to enable a smoother handover for EPCs to owner operators and for owner operators to more easily maintain, refurbish or modify their plants.
