Challenges of a Design Project 

The design model must reflect reality (what is to be built)

 

Document changes must be controlled

 

Information must be readily available to all

Changes in one document must be reflected in all documents

The pieces must fit together when fabricated


02/06/2009

9

Solutions to Design Challenges  

The design model must reflect reality (What is to be built) – Design model must be dynamically linked to P&ID’s and procurement

Document changes must be controlled – Electronic approvals required for revisions

Changes in one document must be reflected in all documents – Documents, models and other engineering deliverables must be linked and “red flagged” when a change is made

Information must be readily available to all – Internet access required – Documents must be linked for quick reference

The pieces must fit together when fabricated – Design model must include everything (actual structure, pipe supports, cable trays, realistic valves and controls)

Description of IPE IPE

Industry Standard

Trained staff using a common work process

Each project organized differently

Intelligent P&IDs linked to 3-D Model, engineering deliverables and procurement & expediting databases

Separate stand alone databases and spread sheets

Automatic consistency check between P&ID, procurement and 3-D Model

Not possible

Electronic control requiring approvals for issuing revisions

Manual approvals based on signature block. Revisions can be issued without proper sign-off

Latest revision automatically available on electronic document management system

Manual checking is necessary to assure the paper document being used is latest issue. Not possible to assure destruction of all out of date documents.

Description of IPE (Continued) IPE

Industry Standard

Historical tracking of drafts and revisions

Manual tracking possible only if old copies kept and everyone manually records each change made

All changes “red flagged” on all other effected documents

Not possible

All documents searchable and crossreferenced by metadata (e.g. tag number, PO, line number, etc.)

Not possible

Design done in 3-D Model. Drawings printed from 3-D Model

Model built from 2-D drawings

3-D Model includes all pipe, pipe supports, cable trays and controls

Model includes major pipe

3-D Model includes proper coping of structural joints

Structural members carried to centerline of joint

All data shared over Internet

Not possible

STATUS REPORTING

AMEC Paragon Systems Summary • Convero provides project cost, progress, time entry, and document control. • Fusion provides document management with bi-directional integration to Convero. • VPID provides intelligent P&IDs with native integration to VPE and PDMS using Model Object Manager. • VPE is the engineering database providing datasheets, major equipment list, line list, and specialty items list with native integration with VPRM. • INtools is the instrument database providing datasheets, loops, and the instrument index with custom integration to VPE for basic tag data management. • VPRM is the material management system used to create requisitions, purchase orders, material tracking and expediting with status reporting to Convero. • VPD / PDMS is the 3D design system that will be used with native integration to VPE and VPRM as noted above.

Delivering Measurable Projects Savings (Continued)

Offshore project using laser scanning integrated with PDMS design were cutting edge efforts. The following benefits were obtained :

     

20% reduction in spool piping field welds 0% rework of piping and structural clashes within the new installation. Project saved approximately one month of offshore hook-up time at completion 5% reduction of material waste due to lack of interferences, clashes, rerouting, etc. Reduced Engineering time by up to 10% Reduced Offshore Visits by up to 70%
