Helping the EPC see current status through sever based integration with StruMIS StruMIS is a server based system with access available from any location. This means the EPC can have access to the current status of the project. The fabricator can allow access to any of the modules and can limit a role to view only. Chasing down the Contracts manager for a status update is no longer required. Full traceability can be tracked for any part View Fabrication details by selecting the member in the model

Summary of FIM approach • Greater detail in model with accurate estimates, earlier in project. • Schedule compression and reducing risk in the supply chain cycle. • Increased confidence in design quality and estimate accuracy, with measurable cost reduction through procurement, fabrication and into construction. • Seamless workflow through the supply chain, eliminating error, reducing rework and over-sights. • Utilisation of work processes that enable effective construction • Increased control of structural model and deliverables across multiple project office and fabricator locations. • Improved project visibility, status and analysis through structural design, fabrication and construction phases.
