Cutting factory project costs & timescales – PPMA Show 2012
When factory layouts need to change, flexible design software and competent project management significantly reduce costs and downtimes. CAD Schroer and WSP CEL team up to show how.
Engineers adapting factories for changing demands must deliver new production lines quickly and cost-effectively. From 25-27 September, software experts CAD Schroer and process engineers WSP CEL team up at PPMA 2012 to present software and services designed to meet that goal:
From 2D/3D Factory Design Software to Fully Managed Projects
“If you are involved in designing, building, adapting, expanding or moving factories, come to stand C15 for a chat,” says Anke Adams of CAD Schroer UK. “You can watch our software demos, or speak to WSP CEL about your project management needs.”
Intelligent project design, fewer costly mistakes
Global engineering and environmental consultancy WSP CEL flexibly deploys CAD Schroer’s MPDS4 plant and factory layout software on diverse projects:
The large-scale design suite is modular, database- and rules-driven, and offers consistency and interference checking tools for high quality results, avoiding expensive mistakes during construction. Automated routing tools for disciplines like P&ID-driven piping, conveyor and handling systems design cut project times. Compact 3D factory designs can be e-mailed to stakeholders for independent walk-through reviews, with changes easily made in a version-controlled manner and communicated in 3D.
Richard Linacre, Technical Director at WSP CEL, adds, “Our services range from concept design through construction to commissioning, bringing to bear decades of experience on biotech, pharma, food, FMCG, energy, industrial and chemical projects. MPDS4 provides us with great design flexibility, making communication of changes easy and immediate, with effective 3D engineering review and visualisation tools. Its multi-user, multi-disciplinary approach means that we can simultaneously work on designs with client teams when required.”
