HOUSTON, October 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AVEVA Group plc , the leading provider of plant design and engineering lifecycle solutions, today announced that Ambitech has added AVEVA Laser Model Interface to its project execution portfolio. AVEVA Laser Model Interface combines the power of AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA Outfitting design environments with advanced third-party laser modeling systems to bring massive benefits to plant engineering and operation companies.
Ambitech is a diversified, single-source provider of engineering, design, procurement, and project and construction management services. They are also a long-time PDMS user and project execution technology pioneer. Designed into the very heart of AVEVA's PDMS and Outfitting applications, Laser Model Interface will allow Ambitech to fuse state-of-the-art, data-centric 3D design with high-definition scanning of the real world.
"We expect to see immediate benefits through the integration of point cloud data into the AVEVA PDMS 3D modeling environment thereby eliminating wasteful and error-prone intermediate remodelling," said Anthony Fumarolo of Ambitech.
The AVEVA Laser Model Interface can help reduce the number of steps for utilizing as-built data in conjunction with PDMS. Its benefits include:
- Reduced risk: hazardous locations can be surveyed safely and quickly and site risks are minimized. Commercial risk is lessened and the most demanding brownfield projects and marine conversions can be tackled with maximum confidence in the as-built model. - Improved project speed: site survey times can typically be halved. Integration with PDMS eliminates intermediate remodeling, allowing Overall design time to be reduced by up to 10 percent. - Enhanced quality: accurate, high definition surveying allows "right first time" design and less rework. - Decreased cost and downtime: accurate design means less onsite fabrication, lower installation cost and less down time.
"While computing technology has transformed the design and engineering of new plant and equipment, retrofits and upgrades of existing plants has remained a challenge due to the lack of availability of as-built plant data" said Derek Middlemas, Group Operations Director, AVEVA. "Through embracing modern approaches to capturing as-built data and integrating with design and asset management solutions, AVEVA as-built data tools such as AVEVA Laser Model Interface allow for significant increases in productivity over existing workflows. Companies such as Ambitech can see the benefits of using these modern workflows to tackle traditional problems".
