New Case Study Published on Holland Applied Technologies Choosing CADWorx for Intelligent 3D Plant Design, Cutting Design Time 66% and Saving 10% on Fabrication Costs

HOUSTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 21, 2008— COADE announced today the publication of a new Case History from Holland Applied Technologies, describing how the firm evaluated, selected and implemented CADWorx Plant Professional, COADEs AutoCAD-based for intelligent 3D plant design, achieving significant improvements in plant production processes that improved accuracy and saved time and money. The case history was developed in conjunction with Dan Gratie, project engineer with Holland Applied Technologies, who was among the first at the firm to use the CADWorx program.

We looked at several different 3D plant design solutions and selected CADWorx Plant Professional because it was so much easier to use and less expensive than the other alternatives that we reviewed, said Gratie. The case describes how CADWorx intelligence enabled them to later produce isometric drawings and bills of material that perfectly match the original plant model, and do so with a minimum of additional effort. Instead of revisiting the design once for the layout, a second time for the isometric drawings and a third time for the bill of materials, the designer just created a single model. Streamlining the design process made it possible for our designers to do in one month what used to take two to three months, Gratie added, and the resulting reduction in rework and scrap material has reduced our fabrication costs by 10% since we began using CADWorx. The case also explains how Holland Applied Technologies uses CADWorx to visualize the design and avoid clashes, which helps head off manufacturing problems, and how bills of material are drawn directly from the 3D model, so they are now much more accurate.
